WCHS Junior Judging winners announced on Friday Night

                                                                                      Jennifer Gibson (ASHA), Chelsey Stone, Will Harris

Will Harris and Chelsey Stone are the 2005 World's Championship Horse Show ASHA Junior Judging winners. 


Harris of Arrington, Tennessee, won the 14 to 17-year-olds division.  Stone of Campbellsville, Kentucky, won the 13 and under division.


(Editor’s note: Not only do these two young folks have a good eye for a horse from center ring, but they have proven themselves in the saddle as well. Coincidentally, both riders are showing in the five-gaited division at Louisville. Will Harris won the blue in the Jr. Exhibitor Five-Gaited Riders 16-17 with She’s Bedazzled AWF. Chelsey Stone ribboned in Jr. Exhibitor Five-Gaited 13 & Under Sec. A with Faye Dunaway WRF.


The ASHA Junior Judging program was developed to educate youth by expanding their understanding of class and show procedures, conduct, specifications and priorities for judging the American Saddlebred horse.


The 46 junior judges who participated in this year had their results compared with the official judges' results.  The junior judges scored classes Tuesday, August 23 and Friday, August 26.


Other winners in the 13 and under division included Krystal Murphy of Goodrich, Michigan, in second; Jennifer Roberts of Charlotte, North Carolina, third; Jennifer Connelly of Louisville, Kentucky, in fourth; Stephanie Breeder of Englewood, Tennessee, fifth; Leann Patterson of Goddard, Kansas, sixth; Jackie Schutt of Louisville, Kentucky, seventh and Casey Pieper of Oshkosh, Wisconsin finished eighth.


In the 14 to 17-year-olds division Courtney Ledo of Stillwater, Minnesota, finished second; Lara Mechling of Rochester Hills, Michigan, third; Alex Browning of Campbellsville, Kentucky, in fourth; Regena Breeden of Englewood, Tennessee, placed fifth; Ethan Roetman of Stillwater, Minnesota, sixth; Elizabeth Reimer of Plainfield, Illinois, in seventh and Sammy Jo Galica of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, placed eighth.
