Pro Am Offers First Rate Competition and Special Moments



by Leeann Mione

PERRY, Ga. – The 31st annual Pro Am Horse Show, despite having to deal with rain most of the weekend, was a great event. More than 100 additional stalls were sold this year and barns from Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, Kentucky and throughout the South brought their best of the best to compete at the Georgia National Fairgrounds.

Scott Snider took the helm again this year and Beth Snider served as show secretary. The Snider team kept things running smoothly both inside the ring and out and competition was incredible all weekend, especially in the huge pleasure divisions.

Dewey Bass served as paddock master and Mark Farrar was master of ceremonies. Don Baker was busy as ringmaster and Dale Stone served as the official organist. Richfield Video served as videographers and J. L. Johnson had to replace very few shoes as official farrier.

The show was dedicated this year to photographer Doug Shiflet who returned for his 30th consecutive Pro Am Benefit Horse Show. (See separate edit this issue.) Shiflet barely had time to take part in the dedication ceremony as he had a night full of competitive classes ahead of him with picture-perfect performances.

There were more extra special moments during the show. Thursday night’s Novice Road Horse To Bike class was dedicated to the memory of Bob Jenkins who passed away after a short illness in November of last year. Abbott Wilson and Jenkin’s horse, Clemenza, took the win and Madren Jenkins was on hand to watch their victory pass. Clemenza was very successful on the racetrack and was the last road horse that Jenkins purchased. He had high hopes for the show ring success of his newest horse and it was extra special for Madren Jenkins, Abbott Wilson and Linda Weber to be part of Clemenza’s Pro Am victory.

Friday night’s finale, the Ladies Five-Gaited Stake, was changed to the UPHA Pink Ribbon Ladies Five-Gaited Stake this year and there was a special presentation Friday night before the class started. (See separate edit this issue.)

The class had already been dedicated to the memory of Clara Flor and $500 added prize money was offered in her memory. Money raised for the pink ribbon class went to benefit the Susan G. Komen For The Cure fund and five ladies competed in front of a big crowd, many wearing pink in a show of support.

In 1987, Lesley Miles was named the first Sportsmanship Award winner at Pro Am, a show at which DeLovely Farm has a long history. Twenty-one years later, Tyler Miles continued that tradition when he was named the 2008 winner of the Sportsmanship Award.

Great competition always seems to inspire great fellowship and camaraderie and Pro Am offered two always-popular events to bring everyone together. The progressive party offered so many great things to eat and drink, the crowd never seemed to get stuck at one particular stop. They spread out and enjoyed everything from peel and eat shrimp to desserts to various types of chili and everything in between.

Friday night’s exhibitors’ party also offered plenty of food and fun for those who attended and once again this year, proved that hospitality at Pro Am is always a top priority.

The show also offered a welcome lunch Wednesday and breakfast each morning. Those items are always part of the show schedule but this year the schedule also included several classes that were either brand new or back on the list after an absence.

Classes for the novice horses and junior horses returned to the schedule this year and the open hunter pleasure class was a brand new class for 2008.

Whether junior, open, amateur, or junior exhibitor, exhibitors had their work cut out for them as world’s champion teams came through the gate in class after class. The pleasure divisions were especially large and competitive and with the new pleasure division qualifying requirements at Louisville this year, points earned in those classes were especially valuable.

The five-gaited stake hosted three entries and they put on a strong performance to close out the competition Saturday night. Open class winner Courageous Lord hit the ring with Mike Barlow to try and make it two for two for owners Bill Carrington and Marsha Shephard. LBF The Harbor Pilot and Lloyd Brannon had previously shown in the novice class for owner Georgette Palassis. Bill Schoeman rounded out the trio with I’m A Skywatcher after a good showing in the open qualifier for Lori and Larry Schmidt.

All three entries worked hard to impress Judge Gene van der Walt but in the end, Courageous Lord just couldn’t be denied. Barlow headed to the winner’s circle to pick up the tricolor accompanied by much support from the crowd. I’m A Skywatcher was named the reserve grand champion.

Friday night’s final class, the UPHA Pink Ribbon Five-Gaited Ladies Stake was a great class to end the night. Five ladies came through the gate and showcased their skills. With an audience sporting pink in support of the fundraising efforts and the class cheering them on, all five ladies gave it everything they had in an effort to take the title.


Jackie Hale rode Simeon to the UPHA Ladies Five-Gaited Stake win for James Hale Stables.

When van der Walt turned in his card, it was Simeon and Jackie Hale named to take the victory pass for James and Jackie Hale. Ladies qualifier winner Reedann’s Swashbuckler and Helen Robertson claimed the reserve tricolor for Andi Bittker.

The amateur division was also extremely competitive and the Saturday night stake class hosted a big, talented group. Janet Kellett and CH Callaway’s Banner Headline turned in a picture-perfect team effort to take the win under the direction of DeLovely. Stablemate Arrowhead’s Dreamcatcher and Deborah Butler followed in the ribbon count as the reserve grand champions. CH Data Dot Com and owner Frank Jones won the amateur gentlemen’s class under the direction of Lisa Rosenberger.

Ali DeGray has moved into the amateur ranks this season and she continued her successful season with the winning ride in the 11-entry amateur qualifier with CH Tigerlee for Pixie Dust & Steel, Inc.


Cassi Rath and Banana Pancakes won the Junior Exhibitor Five-Gaited Stake under the direction of Bill Rodgers.

Cassi Rath had a busy weekend showing her various entries under the direction of Bill Rodgers including her Junior Exhibitor Five-Gaited Grand Champion Banana Pancakes. Rath’s win came after a big move up in the ribbons from the qualifier and a very happy Bill Rodgers headed to center ring for the presentation. Asked And Answered and owner Jayne Major were named the reserve grand champions under the direction of Don Judd and Maria Gilman.

Catapult Shot and Sarah Strong won the five-entry qualifier after a strong performance. They showed under the direction of Betsy Webb Stables.

Mrs. Julian Gregory had a great show at Pro Am and Lance Williamson rode to the winner’s circle more than once on her behalf. Her entry Hillside’s American won the Georgia owned class and topped three other teams for the blue.

The Rosburg win streak in the gaited division continued when Ronnie Graham rode Endure to the blue in the novice class for Helen Rosburg. Four entries competed in the class.

Maria Gilman and Walterway’s Church Me topped a really nice six-entry junior class to add a blue to the Judd Stables total. Gilman rode in the competitive class for owner Barbara Woods.

A pair of three-year-olds competed for their five-gaited blue ribbon with James Spriggs turning in the winning ride. He rode Grand Appearance for the Bobby Turner family. Saturday morning, Tyler Miles and Moon Charmer made it two for two when they were named the Five-Gaited Pony Grand Champions for DeLovely Farm. Small Packages was right there for reserve with Cassi Rath riding for Dori Rath.


Bill Waller rode Harlem's Black Tie Affair to the Three-Gaited Stake win for Jamie Hitchin.

Like the Five-Gaited Stake, the Three-Gaited Stake also featured a trio of entries and like the gaited stake, they were three good ones. Harlem’s Black Tie Affair had already claimed the blue ribbon in the qualifier for Jamie Hitchin with Bill Waller up. He was joined in the stake class by Attache’s Elegance and John Goda III and winners of the novice class V.H.F. The Red Hammer and Tom Lee. The Waller-Hitchin team added the tricolor to their ribbon count when Harlem’s Black Tie Affair was named the grand champion. Attache’s Elegance finished with the reserve tricolor for owner Jo Waddell. Goda had already taken the victory pass in the Georgia owned class for Waddell.

Lynda Norman added another sweep to the DeLovely total when Enough About You won the four-entry Ladies Three-Gaited Stake after taking the qualifier blue. The ladies walk-trot horses were elegant and the hardworking group put on two really nice classes. Ah! What A Night and Tracy Garcia were second in the stake for Shirley Giraudo and Harold Daniels. Garcia showed under the direction of David Chretien.

Also displaying their elegance and talent, the amateur horses faced a great group in both their qualifier and stake classes. Callaway’s Blue Waltz and Erin Obenauf couldn’t be denied and they won both classes, showing under the Reiser Stables banner. Ali DeGray and her new walk-trot mount, Wee Pee’s Storm, turned in two strong efforts and they were named the reserve winners for James and Helen Rosburg.

The junior exhibitors displayed their horsemanship skills with two competitive classes and it was CH Keeper Of The Stars named as the winner of both. Jackie De La Parte took both victory passes under the direction of Judd Stables.

Kalarama’s Loose Lips and Rebecca Deutsch did a great job and they moved up in the ribbons to claim the reserve grand championship title under the direction of Bill and Lisa Waller.

Lynda Norman wasn’t done hanging blue ribbons on the DeLovely tack room wall. She took yet another victory pass when van der Walt named More Than Enough the winner of the five-entry junior class.

LBF It’s Edisto won the three-year-old class for owner Georgette Palassis to represent Valley Hill Farm in the winner’s circle.


Hunter Chancellor showed three different mounts to wins including her sweep of the three-gaited pony division with The Attaché Orchid.

Hunter Chancellor had three different horses to show at Pro Am in three different divisions and she took five victory passes on behalf of Terri and Steven Chancellor including her sweep of the three-gaited pony division with The Attache Orchid. Simbara’s Audacity, a decorated veteran of the division, finished in second in the stake with owner Alexis Landreth. Landreth rode under the direction of Lisa Rosenberger.

The park division was well filled and competitive across the board and the amateur riders had their work cut out for them with a 10-entry stake and 11-entry qualifier.

The open division featured a strong group of six in the stake class and when the card was turned in, it was Society Lane’s Prince Of Change named to the win with James Hale up for owner Liz Smith. Tommy Richardson rode Master And Commander to the blue ribbon in the open qualifier before returning in the stake to claim reserve for Richardson Stables.

Meadowlark Jubilee and owner Morgan King added a tricolor from the park division to the Judd Stables total when they turned in a strong effort to win the amateur stake. Jigsaw Johnny and owner Nancy Moreno turned in the reserve effort under the direction of trainer Dan Flowers. Kelley Hollowell and Macy Gray were right on point to win the big amateur qualifier and were met by Lisa Rosenberger in center ring for the presentation of the blue.

All the young riders rode hard to present their mounts and they added two more strong classes to the Pro Am total this year.


Jenna Palmeri and CH Discover, from Judd Stables, were the Junior Exhibitor Park Grand Champions and Champions.

CH Discover’s name is well known in the show horse ranks with numerous wins in different divisions including his sweep at Pro Am to win both junior exhibitor park classes with owner Jenna Palmeri from Judd Stables. Majestic Worries and owner Emma Price were right there to be named the reserve grand champions under the direction of Brian Reimer.

Barbara Woods not only watched her former mount CH Discover take two victory passes in the park division, she also watched Maria Gilman ride her novice horse Essence Of Heaven to the blue ribbon over three other talented entries.

Soquili Stables had a big weekend at Pro Am under the direction of Randy Stoess and Allison Walker and one of their blue ribbon winners was the junior park horse Soquili’s Sir Galahad, ridden by Walker to close out the division.

Joe Friday brought a big crowd to the rail for Saturday night’s stake class after previously winning the open class with Ruth Gimpel. The crowd cheered him on when he took the victory pass in the stake for owners James and Helen Rosburg. Just a three-year-old, V.H.F. Lemon Lane and Tom Lee claimed the reserve streamers for owner Laura Gralton after having won their qualifying class. The Rosburgs had another winner in the division: The Tango Dancer. James Rosburg drove to the blue in the amateur class for Pixie Dust & Steel.


Ronnie Graham met Patricia Bonati and Piece de Resistance in the winner's circle after they won the Junior Fine Harness class.

Bon Mar Farm continued the Ruth Gimpel Stables win streak in the division when Piece De Resistance and Patricia Bonati took the blue in the junior class.

Randy Harper judged the road horses and he had a great group in front of him all weekend. He selected Ronnie Graham and Roar Of Thunder to take the victory pass in the Roadster To Bike Stake for James Rosburg. Going First Class, winner of the open class with Bill Sauer, took reserve in the stake for Dr. William Denham.

Julius S Ceasar headed to center ring when Ann Boyd teamed her entry to victory in the ladies bike class under the direction of Cathy Kellerhals.

Roar Of Thunder also took Ali DeGray on a victory pass when she won the Youth Roadster To Bike class.

Things in the novice class were going along fine until Ricky Bobby caught a shaft in the railing, spilling Rick Adams from the bike. Another bike was brought in, Chuck Price’s entry was hooked up again and the class continued. Fortunately, neither horse nor driver was seriously injured and they returned to show again later in the week.

Majestic Oaks was represented twice in the winner’s circle in the roadster division when Quill won both the Roadster Under Saddle Stake and qualifier with Holli McDowell. Vivacious and Holly Ackerman scored the reserve title in the stake under the direction of Mark and Mary Lou Greenwell.

Shelby Reimer and Jose Cuervo won the AHHS Roadster Pony Youth Medallion class for Brian Reimer Stables and then returned in the junior exhibitor stake to take the tricolor as well. Baby Cakes and Andie Lloyd added the reserve tricolor ribbon to the
Avalon total.

Gwen Stableford and her new pony Heartland Elegant Touch headed to the Buffalo Creek stalls after winning the pleasure driving pony stake.

Gwen Stableford and her pony Heartland Elegant Touch haven’t been a team for long and with only a very few practice drives so far this year, they teamed up to win the competitive Hackney Pleasure Driving Stake from Buffalo Creek Farm. Oliver Twist and Charlotte Wrather followed in the ribbon count with the reserve tricolor streamers after winning the qualifier earlier in the week.

Cassie Rath added another blue to the Silver Run Stables total when Bear Creek’s Beloved took the victory pass in the AHHS Hackney Pleasure Driving Youth Medallion for owner Josh Chretien.


Callaway's Another Winner and Debbie Owens represented Infinity Stables when they won the Adult Five-Gaited Pleasure Stake and qualifier.

The Park Pleasure Stake was a huge class with 16 entries, and could arguably be considered one of the show’s most competitive classes. Hillside’s Light My Fire turned it on after competing in the 14-entry novice class with Lance Williamson guiding the big mare to the winner’s circle to pick up the tricolor for Mrs. Julian Gregory. General Spirit and James Hale had already won the 10-entry qualifier for owner DeLovely Farm and when they returned in the stake they picked up the reserve streamers.

Ali DeGray and Callaway’s Tobar came out on top in the novice class for James and Helen Rosburg and added another blue to the Ruth Gimpel Stables total.

Walker and another Soquili winner headed to center ring to pick up the blue when Soquili’s Rhythm And Blues won the three-year-old class. Linda Richmond and Not Listed represented Rockaway Show Horses with the win in the Park Pleasure Driving class.

The show pleasure division was yet another one at Pro Am where just earning a ribbon was an accomplishment, let alone taking the blue or tricolor. Competition was fierce across the board and riders had to work hard to find the perfect spot on the rail to impress van der Walt.


Erin Obenauf, from Reiser Stables, showed her entry Thundersnow to the win in the 16-entry adult show pleasure stake.

Erin Obenauf rode her own entry Thundersnow to the tricolor in the big 16-entry Adult Three-Gaited Show Pleasure Stake.

The adult riders in the country pleasure division had the biggest classes and they faced a group of 14 in the stake and 12 in their qualifier.


Cheetah's Admiral and Joellen Blount were the Adult Country Pleasure Grand Champions after winning the earlier adult qualifier.

Joellen Blount and Cheetah’s Admiral had no problem navigating their way to the winner’s circle in both classes to add two more wins to the DeLovely total. After winning the amateur owned and trained class, Deborah Richardson and CH Prophet’s Fire Hazard returned in the stake to claim the reserve grand championship.

The Hein family had another reason to celebrate when Amy Hein and Phi Phalutin RR went to the head of the class in the nine-entry Junior Exhibitor Country Pleasure Stake and the seven-entry qualifier for the 14-17 riders. Kaitlin Whatley and Carolina Clay picked up the reserve grand championship title from DeLovely Farm.

Alexandria Walker and Cha Ching Cha Ching had a very busy and successful weekend and took victory passes in several different divisions including the 13 and Under Junior Exhibitor Country Pleasure qualifier.

The Georgia owned class hosted eight top entries and the team of Callaway’s Victoria and owner/trainer Paul Harris picked up the blue ribbon Wednesday night.

Laura Strong claimed victory in the seven-entry novice rider class with her mount Harlem’s Wind showing under the Betsy Webb Stables banner.

Friday night was such a special night for Helen Rosburg; not only for being part of the special presentation for the UPHA Pink Ribbon class in honor of her victory over breast cancer, but also for her trip to the winner’s circle in the Country Pleasure Driving Stake with Harlem’s Worldly Lady. The team had already picked up the blue in the six-entry qualifier before topping the six-entry stake.

CF Private Night Out and Janet Kellett were right there for the reserve grand championship title in the stake and showed under the direction of Bob Vesel.

Mister Bayleigh couldn’t have done much better to prove that he loves the western pleasure division. He and Deborah Richardson won the Western Country Pleasure Stake, the ASB Western Country Pleasure class and the Saddle & Bridle Shatner Western Pleasure class. The only other class in the division was the open western pleasure class and that blue ribbon went to Jan Henderson and New York Fire. Henderson and her mount also took the reserve streamers in the stake class under the direction of Marvin Ward who attended his 31st Pro Am.

Cha Ching Cha Ching and Alexandria Walker switched gears and took three of the four possible wins in the hunter pleasure division. They were name the Hunt Seat Pleasure Grand Champions, open hunter pleasure champions and ASB hunter pleasure champions.

Cabana Boy and Jessie Green were reserve in the stake for owner Christy Parker-Cordell and Rebecca Babcock won the Saddle & Bridle Hunter Seat Classic with her Manhattan’s Review.

Shelby Reimer kept her winning weekend going when she rode Columbia Buccaneer to the win in the Open Parade Stake to add another win to the Brian Reimer Stables total.

The 10 and under riders and the adult riders faced the biggest classes in the equitation division and in fact the adult qualifier, with six entries, was the largest.

The Saddle Seat Equitation Championship hosted a trio of entries and after their rail work, all three performed the workout. Victoria Champion, Rachel Rafolski and Chelsey Stone all did a great job but when van der Walt’s card was turned in, it was Rafolski named the winner after a qualifying ride in the NHS Saddle Seat Event class. Rafolski rode Three’s A Charm to the tricolor under the direction of Pine Haven Stables and she also picked up the reserve in the pleasure challenge cup. Stone, riding Highpoint’s Hot Wired, was reserve and represented Cardinal Farms.

Champion came into the championship having already won the 14-17 qualifier with Party Night. She rode for owner Cavello, LLC under the direction of Suzanne Schnetzler.

Hunter Chancellor and Feng Shui teamed up to keep the Chancellor win count coming and they won the 13 and under class. They came back to also win the NHS class.

Macy Miles, like her brother Tyler, added a blue to the Miles family total when she was named the winner of the 10 and under walk and trot class with CH Callaway’s Coraleen. She also won the 10 and under walk and trot challenge cup class.

Emily McNair was met twice in center ring by trainer Chan Sutton. McNair and Ribbon Red won the adult equitation championship and qualifier under the Oak Lane Farm banner. Jamie Hitchin rode Lisa Waller’s CH Santana’s Kiss to the adult reserve grand championship title.

Christina Collis and Show Baby Show added another equitation blue to the DeLovely total when they were named the winners of the UPHA 17 and Under Challenge Cup. They finished second in the NHS class to give DeLovely the one-two finish.

Isabella Leslie, riding CF Chief’s Red Hot Girl, took the red ribbon in the walk and trot challenge cup representing Pine Haven Stables.

The pleasure equitation division featured two big, competitive classes. Abby Mutrux rode Blackboard to the top of the card in the seven-entry UPHA Pleasure Challenge Cup. Sally McEwen, instructed by Jennifer Alvis of Heathermoor Farm, won the eight-entry Saddle & Bridle Pleasure Equitation Medallion for owner Laura Samford. She was followed in the ribbons by Mutrux who rode for owner Marjorie Phelps.

Pro Am has so many reasons to make it an essential stop early in the show season. A facility that easily accommodates the needs of owners, trainers and horses, a competent staff ready to take care of whatever is needed and good old-fashioned Southern hospitality.

Bigger and better than ever this year, the show proved to be a great kick off to the Georgia show season for those who didn’t attend Tampa or ASAC and a great contest and barometer for those who had already competed this season.

The Pro Am Board of Directors and members of the board are a big reason the show is so successful and along with the capable direction of Scott Snider and his staff, and with Beth Snider in the office, set the show up to continue its tradition of providing one of Georgia’s best show horse showcases.
