Thank you, Hookie!

Hook Martorella, you gave your wonderful owner, Cathe Martorella, the ride of a lifetime. Now go gallop with your horse friends in heaven. I was always so proud of you, one of my first winners from Clifford Horse Training. I am so honored that you left me with the lucky pad. I will use it with great pride and think of you every time. Lots of love, Sarah.

Limited Rockstars


This trio of riders, and this division in general, is the heartbeat of GSVRHA.  They are great competitors,  but great sports and extremely hard workers.  Congrats to champion Kelly Dixon, Reserve Champ Kim Donlon, and third place winner Kelly Roemer.

Open Rockstars


Congrats to Kathy Torres on bringing home the buckle on Paul Barulich’s Rosio.  Kathy and Rosio also won the award for the high scoring junior horse. Chris Bugenig was right behind. And what is Taimane Faiaipau’u doing in the photo?  Well, Taimane wanted to step up and challenge herself with some extra tough competition. Boy, did she show us how it’s done! Taimane is an amazing competitor and a wonderful role model for all of our youth.

Intermediate Winner!


The Intermediate division has become so hotly contested that there was an all-around tie that had to broken through the cow horse class.  That winner was Mindy Gillen, shown here with her number one supporter.  Congrats, too, to Reserve champ Lisa Novatt, another new member and wonderful addition to our club.  And just one point behind these two was our own Larry Bacon with wins in the Trail and the Cow Horse classes.  This is a great division.

Advanced Rockstars


Gay Ver Steeg put together the most amazing show by winning every class except Trail, which was won by our own Dawn Poston.  Needless to say, Gay was the champ.  She was also the select amateur winner.  Dawn was a close second with Reserve, and a great big congratulations goes out to Vanessa Lawrence, who brought home the third place prize.
