Quarferhorse plans group The Open Schooling show planned by the Redwood Empire Quarter Horse Association for this Sunday at the Rainbow Ranch indoor arena will be held despite the, recent and current rainstorm. The management of the show announces that a portion of the indoor arena will l?e sectioned off so that horses may be saddled under cover and so that riders will be able to await th^ call for their classes out of the rain. The show will begin at 9 a.m. with the showmanship-classes and the show secretary would like £pr everybody to understand that this is a schooling show and that fuzzy and wooley horses will not be peilalized in any way. Also, muddy feet and legs are understandable and will not be counted down in any of the classes. This is the first schooling show in this area and is a good testing ground for young horses or for those who will be showing more extensively later in the year. The Redwood Empire Quarter Horse Association hopes that it will be able to plan more schooling shows throughout the season but a good turnout on Sundfay will be an important factor. The judge will be Donna Thornton of Sebastopol and although Donna is best known on the open show circuit, the Palomino horse shows and A.Q.H.A. shows, she feels-that she can judge all breeds with an unbiased eye and that a properly trained and shown horse can compete in any company. Classes will include divisions for ages 12 and under, 13 through 17 and 18 and under. There will be high point awards for each of thes&. divisions and a separate high point aw£lrd for members of the Redwood Empire Quarter Horse Association., Participants will be allowed to join the R.E.Q.H.A. the day of the show.
