2006 Equine Extravaganza

*** THE HORSES THEY SELECTED ***

For 2006, Virginia Sport Horses was asked to provide the horses for the Virginia Equine Extravaganza.

Virginia Equine Extravaganza president Vicki O'Hara and well-known clinician Julie Goodnight (http://www.juliegoodnight.com) selected seven female horses from the farm.  Those horses traveled to Richmond’s Raceway Complex October 27-29, 2006 for the first-ever Virginia-based colt-starting competition featuring trainers Randy Abernathy of McKenney, Tommy Garland of Powhatan, and Charles Pellham of Raphine.

During the East Coast Trainer's Challenge, judges selected the three of the seven horses they believed to be the most similar—giving each competing clinician an equal chance to succeed. Of the three selected, the clinicians drew to find out which horse they’d work with for the weekend. The sport horses' height and weight offered a unique challenge for the clinicians. Most other colt-starting demonstrations feature Quarter Horses known for their short, stocky statures.
