The Fall Spectacular in Wenatchee was well attended with many riders putting the finishing polish on as they got ready for the affiliate finals. The highlight of the show was the Maturity class for horses 7 years old and over and the Derby for 4, 5 and 6-year-old horses.
Mike Stokes of Spokane won the Open Maturity on Wish Chic and was second on Gundealer. In the nonprofessional division, Gina Wigen of Rathdrum, Idaho won on Stelle Estrisce Whiz while Gundealer was again second with his owner Dana King riding.
The Open Derby was also won by Mike riding Spicy Chic Dream for owner Lynn Johnson, and Scott Seeklander came in second on Bee A Great for owner Lynn Johnson. Debbie Estrin of Rocking E Feeds on Gotta Nu Gun won the level 4 nonpro Derby and tied in the prime time Derby with Gail Seeklander on Dregers Spark.
