SGF Winning Ways Clinic and Show

TOMBALL, Texas – Glorious spring-like weather and a popular trainer/judge brought riders from the Houston area and as far away as Austin and Dallas to SGF Winning Ways Farm’s second annual horse show, May 18. Cascade Stables trainer Barbe Smith began her saddle seat clinic on Friday afternoon and into Saturday, and judged the show the following day.

The clinic could be called nothing but a rousing success. Riders worked individually with Smith, riding in small groups on Saturday afternoon.

Sunday’s horse show featured everything from show pleasure and equitation competition to fun classes such as Walk and Favorite Gait and a Parents’ Lead-line (costume optional) competition. It was a place for young riders to gain ring experience and teams to hone their skills in a competitive setting before heading off for Germantown and Kentucky shows this summer.

The ASB Three-Gaited class featured seven entries, several of whom have posted wins on the Southwest circuit this season. Saddle Seat Equitation competition proved to be interesting. Avery Bul and Beth Oseroff of Milligan Stables had come down to help work the show and entered the fray. Bul, Oseroff and Lindsey and Lauren Greenwald drew for horses. Fay Stephens, Hannah Houske, and Nicole Tucker of Lone Star Saddlebreds joined the four with each completing the simple workout designed by Smith.

Saddlebred Rescue was well-represented at this show, with SGF Winning Ways Farm’s Bugs and Paul Cates Stable’s Romeo and Giselle each carrying riders to ribbons. Cates said, "To think these horses were headed to the killers is an awful thought. They will teach a ton of kids to ride."
