New Home, New Champions!

On behalf of the entire staff, I'm proud to announce the Rolling Hills Equestrian Center, Corning, California will be the permanent home of the Sharon Camarillo Western Classic! We enjoyed the hospitality and camaraderie of the new facility and the contestants agreed! A special thank you to Equestrian Center Manager Mandy Staley, Run2Win president Sharra Deniz along with Ground by Jack, Sharra's husband, for their attention to the details necessary to produce a successful event.

Congratulations to Grand Champion Mary Jo Camera on Joe Dynomite (above left).

Our Grand Champion Mary Jo Camera from Turlock, California, riding two horses she started and trained herself, has to agree. Not only did Mary Jo win the Grand Champion Courts Saddlery saddle riding Joe Dynomite, she also won second in the 1D by a mere 1/10th of a second riding Fairlea Lucky Gun! With the three go round competition, consistency is the name of the game. Mary Jo placed in every go-round while adding 1st and 2nd in the Senior Rider Race to her Classic resume. I loved watching Mary Jo's enthusiastic runs, culminating in cowgirl whoops and arm pumps demonstrating the passion and respect Mary Jo has not only for the sport, but most important, for the horses she rides.

won the In Pursuit of Excellence Fast Time
award with a time of 15.090.

Red Bluff, California All Around Cowgirl Jandee Smart, riding her 10 year-old mare Stella Bella clocked the fast time to set the pace in the 1st Go, graciously accepted a disappointing penalty in the 2nd Go, and came back in the 3rd Go with a vengeance, clocking the fast time of the weekend, 15.090, to win the In Pursuit of Excellence Horseware Ireland Award Blanket.

Impressive and consistent performances were also made by our 2D Champion Shannon Cash on Double Doc Blanton, 3D Gypsy Watson on Busy Jetolena and 4D Kathy Smith, riding Doc's Firefly Lady. Kathy also won the Kalyn Brooks Memorial Award presented in the loving memory of our Miracle Barrel Racer, Kalyn Brooks. Elizabeth Sousa and her horse, Notice My Shiner, won the Target Race and FarmTek Timer.
