Trainer Jack Towell concluded, “This show is built for horses, this ring is built for horses to show in. If I was a horse I would like to be in there. I feel comfortable in there, and so does he. They do such an unbelievable job here. When Mason does something he does it great. The judging was fantastic. I can’t say enough about it, I really like this horse show, and I don’t have a single complaint.”
Today marked the conclusion of the hunter divisions at the Alltech National Horse Show, but 200 junior riders will return to the Alltech Arena tomorrow morning to compete during the Maclay National Championship for the ASCPA Maclay Horsemanship Classes – Presented by Hadfield’s Saddlery.
