The Horse Association of Central Kootenay hosted the Hot August Hooves Show August 14 to 16 at the Trail Horseman’s Grounds.

It was a wonderful weekend of riding and fun, despite setbacks. Many competitors’ homes were under the threat of fire, which made for a stressful and emotional time.

The judge came from Riverside, Wash. and did a fantastic job. The weekend started Friday with dressage. Fifty-six tests were ridden, both English and Western.

The club added something new to the program this year. TREC, which is a trail course with different kind of obstacles you would find if you were out in the mountains, was run and judged by Jocelyn Templeman, and was so much fun. Nineteen horses and riders went through the challenging course.

Saturday was English Day, and Sunday was Western Day, along with some halter and in hand classes.  The weather was amazing, although very smoky on Saturday, and a tad hot Sunday.

Results for the weekend are as follows:

Overall Champion of the Weekend  – Merna Boltz riding Royal King Zantanon
