Amateurs Reign Supreme Coast to Coast in YAA Family Feud



The AMHA Young Adult Alliance (YAA) once again entertained at the New England and Morgan Medallion Classic Regional Horse Shows in July. At both shows, the Young Adult Alliance hosted a rousing game of family feud with professionals facing off against amateurs. In both events, the amateurs reigned supreme!

At New England, the amateur team was comprised of Kim Germ-Cramer, C A Lee III, Kristin Johnson, Jeanne Fuelling and Casey McDonald-Douglass swept all three rounds of competition. The professionals led by Jim Taylor included Peggy Alderman, Jessica Sebring, Keith Friday along with special guest George Liberty shined during the “Fast Money Rounds” but couldn’t pull off the win. 

At the Morgan Medallion, Paul Brisco headed up the amateur team of Lacey Wright, Alison Willes, Shaunicy Sturm, Linda Sheridan, Kellie Ramsower and Helen Roy while trainers Frank Miller, Eric Antman, Merin Maggi, Suzanne Haberek, Stacy Hennessy, Jim Cherry and Whitney Anderson kept them in close competition. 

Both events helped to encourage fun and exciting evenings at the horse shows and support the Young Adult Alliance’s mission of building relationships, developing professionally, and contributing to the economic success of the Morgan community.
