The Horse Association of Central Kootenay held its last show of the year at the Pass Creek grounds on Sunday, Oct. 4, the Haunted Halloween Ho-Down!

Riders from Yack, Creston, Grand Forks and the local area were treated to spectacular fall weather and a fun-filled day of classes.

The day began with the costume class where both the rider and horse dress up in costume. We had a Walmart shopper and and Indian Princess strut their stuff in the ring!

The show’s judge, Jackie Smolinski, put everyone though their paces with a watchful eye riding English or Western, and even some gymkana games at the end.  All riders received a beautiful rosette ribbon along with a Halloween goodie bag with a tack item and candy, for every class they were in.

 

The horse association would like to thank all the volunteers who made the day a spook-tacular success.
