For 26 years, it has been my pleasure producing the Wine Country Classic Horse Show, both in Santa Rosa and then in Elk Grove. Our purpose has been to produce a “B” rated horse show with the amenities and feel of an “A” rated show. To that end, we have been rewarded by you, the exhibitor, with your support and loyalty. I would like to thank everyone involved in this success: Trainers, exhibitors, parents, sponsors, officials and staff.
There are riders today who are 26 years old and were just born during the first year of our event!! Amazing.
There are too many people to thank, but we all know who was there, in the beginning, setting the standard for our show. Everyone contributed to the fun, parties, and competition and that is what made our show special.
At this time in my life, it is time to move on to other adventures. The Wine Country Classic is now part of history and you were there.
Thank you, one and all, for the joy you brought to our show.
This event was a lifetime experience for me personally. I will always remember the Wine Country Classic and all who made it what it was.
