The day began with the Halter events taking place in a heavy fog. After the fog cleared  the afternoon provided pleasant weather for the riders, spectators and horses as well.

In all there were fifty-two events that included Showmanship, Hunter Western Pleasure, Trail and Barrel racing. There was a full day of fun for those in attendance.


The Collage Scholarship donations came from food sales and fees. Spectators were treated to free admission to Saturday's event.
