2007 ARABIAN HORSE CLUB OF CONNECTICUT (AHCC)
by Marylou A. Yuskiewicz

The Arabian Horse Club of Connecticut held their 35th Annual Class A Horseshow on May 25-27 at the Eastern States Exposition (The Big E) in West Springfield, Mass. This show qualifies for Region 16 Championship and US Nationals 2007 & 2008. AHA, NSHR, USDF and USEF also recognized the show.

The Show Officials were like a "well-oiled machine". Everyone worked together like they have been doing it for years - everyone smiled, encouraged exhibitors, assisted spectators and was wonderful to work with. Lets meet the show staff: Melissa Wooten (Show Chairwoman/Barn Manager); Ron Mauri (Show Manager); Marlene Kriegbaum (Show Secretary); Andy Bailey (Announcer); Patrick Bailey (Paddock Master); Linda Mauri (Ribbons); Wes Stevenson (First Aid); Ed Strain (Farrier); Denlore Photography (Photographer); Marylou Yuskiewicz (Ringmaster); Cindy Dougherty (USEF Steward); Paulette Brim (Learner Steward) and Dr. Bonnie Smth (Veterinarian).

Judges were as follows: Patty Kent (Coliseum); Anne-Marie Gregoire (Sport-Horse) and William McMullin (Dressage). The club Board of Directors also did their part whenever they were needed though out the 3 day show: Barbara Reynolds (President); Avryl Holden (Vice-President); Michelle Laudano (Treasurer); Gina Rivezzi (Secretary) and Amy Rader, Angela Lent, Deborah Thompson and Terry Henning.

This was my first time in Mass and working for this show, I can tell you I had a wonderful time, each exhibitor/spectator/club member/sponsor was awesome. If you could not attend the show this year, you will want to in 2008 as you are missing a fantastic enjoyable time for you and your equine. Results are attached - will you be wearing the blue ribbon in 2008 - we hope to see you in center-ring!

Linda Mauri (Mass) was the 2nd-6th place ribbon presenter and (listen up show managers) *she irons every ribbon before presenting to the exhibitors* - thanks Linda for adding that special touch. Karen Gerrish (NY) assisted the Sport Horse and Dressage scribes (this was her 1st time at a Class A Show).

This show offered classes/divisions from the Leadliner to the talented adult riders. The exciting Native Costume class is always a crowd pleaser. The costumes for horse/rider are so elegant - a lot of time/effort to match the right costume - everyone is a winner in my book.

After the classes on Saturday evening was the *Progressive Aisle Party* - the club provided drinks and everyone brought food to share. There was the *Chuck a Duck* event held Friday evening (youth) and Saturday evening (adults). The object of this was to throw underhand the rubber duck into the ring (inside the show ring) from the rail. Proceeds benefited the AHCC Scholarship Fund. They even had an Ice Cream Social on Friday evening - sponsored by Murphy Farm & Equine Sales.

AHCC hopes you add their show to your 2008 show calendar.  For more information, please email Barbara Reynolds bjrey@aol.com and/or Marlene Kriegbaum mkriegbaum@roadrunner.com to add your name for a show booklet.
