The Center of the Nation Appaloosa Horse Club (CON ApHC) would like to thank you for participating in the Spring Spotacular appaloosa horse show held in Sioux Falls, SD over Memorial Day weekend.  We thought it was a good show, with over 140 horses representing 11 states and Canada, over 2834 entries, and over 1016 national points earned by the exhibitors and horses!

We very much appreciate your participation – all shows depend on exhibitors and horse owners to be successful.  We would especially like to thank those who helped with various jobs at the show – your assistance helped to make things go more smoothly.  Thanks also to those who did shopping at the silent auction or donated items for the auction.  Those who sponsored classes or donated items for awards were very generous – thank you also. 

Congratulations to the high point winners for the weekend:

Youth Walk Trot – Hannah Loeseke
Youth 13 & Under – Brenna Doherty
Youth 14-18 – Michelle Fink
Cattle Horse – Captain Zip Ahoy owned by Rick Childs and exhibited by Jirkovsky’s
Games Horse – Dakota Dividend owned and exhibited by Sandy Rebstock
Western Horse – Applaud for Me owned by Jay and Alice Stewart and exhibited by Stewart’s and Jirkovsky’s

If you would like to make any comments or suggestions regarding the show or the CON ApHC, please feel free to visit our website at  Emails and contact information for all of the CON ApHC Board members are available at the website.
