This year’s California Futurity was another great show due to the hard work of Larry Witter, Betty Jane Holtz and Kevin Michael pictured here enjoying Thursday evening’s exhibitor’s party at Pinto Ranch.

Ethereal Love was the Junior Park Champion at Mid-America Mane Event with Amanda Simpson up for Susan Aschenbrenner. The mare also won at Saint Louis in September.

Elaine Galatz, of Vegas Valley Morgans, drove Playmor’s Prinz Of Bellaire to win the Morgan Pleasure Driving Championship and qualifier at California Futurity under the direction of trainer Harold Angell.

Heartland Stables trainer, Dave Hysaw enjoyed the Mid-America Mane Event Saturday night Exhibitors Party along with Carson Kressley and Annika Bruggeworth. Making the trek all the way from New Jersey, Siren Song added their famous margaritas to the event. Bruggeworth went home with several good ribbons, including a blue ribbon with The Mansion in Amateur Park.

After a two year hiatus, Mrs. Nancy Anderson was back in the ring at Mid-America Mane Event. Surrounded by family after her debut with the pleasure pony, Heartland Accolade, Nancy can’t wait for 2015. Daughter Linda Meyer and grandchildren Zach and Brianna Meyer were on hand to cheer her on.

Mark Turner congratulated Malika Keglowitsch after a great ride on CH I’m McDreamy. The team swept the Junior Exhibitor Three-Gaited division at Mid-America Mane Event. Turner was reunited with CH The Daily Lottery on Saturday night to unanimously with the Open Five-Gaited Jackpot.
