July 4th Special Ranch Trail Class


The 2017 WPQHA 4th of July Summer Circuit Celebration, held in beautiful Harlansburg, PA, at the WPQHA Show Complex, has come to a close. The show continued to impress with its large classes and great prizes, multiple drawings, and circuit awards in every class, and a grab bag prize winner in each class were a hit with all exhibitors.  On behalf of myself, the officers, and all the Directors, we would like to thank all of our Sponsors, exhibitors, owners, show staff and volunteers, for making this Circuit a great success. The staff worked hard to accommodate everyone’s needs, both in and out of the show pens and kept things moving smoothly. All were thanking God for the great weather, as well as a super appreciation dinner and great entertainment, put on by the WPQHA Youth Association: Dog Races, Costume Class, Pasta Dinner, 50/50 Raffle, Fireworks, and much other fun and successful activities.  Special Thanks to the Youth Advisors, the youth, and parents for all their help.  The Circuit kicked-off with a 4th of July Special Event Celebration for Equestrian with Disabilities Open & AQHA Show which was well attended.   What a great event for the EWD exhibitors, how appreciative they were to have an event like this just for them. Our Versatility Ranch Horse Special Event was a huge success.  Due to the popularity and rapid growth of the Ranch Horse Riding discipline, we were excited to hold these events as a standalone show for the Versatility Ranch Horse, and happy they were so well received by our exhibitors.  Our ring crew did a tremendous job with setting up and designing the VRH Trail Course with all of the natural obstacles like it was out in the open range.

It was wonderful to see the participation of the exhibitors in all the classes and were encouraged by the numbers. Our Hunters had numbers and points in all their events. Exhibitors were thrilled with the Halter, Showmanship, and Contest Events all in one day.  Many compliments as to how the Halter was run, especially Grand & Reserve Classes.  All Six Show ran extremely smoothly.  Special thanks to our Awards Chairman, and sponsors for all the wonderful Awards, Circuit Awards in every class, grab bag winner in each class, and all the All-Around Awards Champion & Reserve Champions. Award sponsors for the All-Around awards were the dream makers of all the winners, Billie’s Western Hats, Deb Moyer Show Clothing, Moore’s Auto Wrecking, WPQHYA Youth Association, Jones Performance Horses, and Rome Feed. Lots of complements, everyone loved them. Great Awards.

One of the most moving of all the Classes was the $1,000 Joyce Wyatt (Ms. Joyce) Memorial Non-Pro Walk–Trot-Jog, honoring a WPQHA, PQHA, AQHA life time member, AQHA Judge for 39 years, and AQHA Director at large.  Ms. Joyce was honored by the presence of her son, Bill Bradford and her granddaughter, Stevie Lynn Bradford,  who provided years of her life’s memorabilia for all to share in, on display at the entry office, it was a great experience for all that knew her.  Mr. John Post attended and shared a letter all about Ms. Joyce, written by former Pittsburgh Steeler Mr. Mel Blount. (Read the letter here)

We at WPQHA extend our deepest gratitude to these people who helped make this event special for all.  Our appreciation of the generosity and kindness of everyone that donated to this fund for this event, Bill Bradford, John Post, Mel Blount,  David Avery, WPQHA, and WPQHYA.  Our winners were: $500 – Jessica Pickersgill & Chanel Number Five $300 – Tessa Keller & GT Miss Maggie   $200 – Alexis Ziemak & Good N Red, Congratulations to all.  The legacy that Joyce Wyatt has built, will forever be appreciated & admired by all who have ever crossed or followed her trail.  Plan to attend next year’s event at this same Circuit in her honor.

Each WPQHA Officer and all the WPQHA Directors are committed to working for all the Exhibitor and WPQHA members in making WPQHA better than its ever been.  Please feel free to contact any officer or Board Member to offer your ideas or assistance.

Again, on behalf of myself, the officers, and all the Directors, we would like to thank all that attended and supported us in making this Circuit a great success.  It takes each and every one to make this happen. 

Thanks to All.
