Beth Wins Grand Champion Halter at 2008 Beaver Fair!
posted on Oct 24, 2008
Our fabulous shire mare, Steege's Beth won Grand Champion Halter Horse at the 80th annual Beaver Fair in Beaver Springs, PA, held in September 2008. We are especially proud as this is the second year in a row that one of our big girls has earned this title! Last year Steege's Zena won the Championship!
There were a lot of beautiful horses, all light breeds, to compete against, but the judge seemed to be drawn to our big girl with all her decorations and majesty.
Beth, handled by Brittany Folk, did a fantastic job wowing the spectators and later stood quietly while giving children the opportunity to sit atop her back. Congratulations to them both for a job well done!
