Don’t Miss the Final Show of 2012!
by Sam Etsell
The WRHA is gearing up for its third and final show of the 2012 season. The Fall Spectacular and Futurity will be held at the Appleatchee Arena in Wenatchee, Washington on October 5th-7th. This show features both the open and non-pro futurity, a class specifically for three-year-old horses. A full slate of NRHA and WRHA classes will also be offered for competitors. The WRHA would also like to congratulate Sean McBurney and Chics Loaded Gun for winning the Level 3 Open Derby at the NRHA Derby in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. This Arlington, Washington native piloted the six-year-old stallion to a 220.5 for owners Brian Knutson and Gaylene Sawchuk. The pair brought home over $20,000 in the Level 3 and broke the top 15 in the Level 4 for a total of almost $30,000 in earnings for the show. McBurney also rode Dun Step N Out to the finals in the Level 3 Open Derby. This 4-year-old mare is owned by Rhodes River Ranch of Arlington, Washington. The WRHA is always grateful for the support of all sponsors. We would like to thank all of our Diamond Sponsors: Woodley Ranch, Timberland Homes, Maria Danielli, and Northwest Weight Loss Surgery. We would also like to thank our Platinum Sponsors: Horse Vidz Productions, Eve Willett Agency Insurance, and Seaview Automobiles. Finally, we would like to send gratitude to our Gold Sponsors: Bariatric Advantage, Coastal Community Bank, and Stancik Quarter Horses.
