2013 World Show theme: "Who's your (Hoosier) Bucky"

        The drive for many was a little shorter this year as the 2013 IBHA World Show's location was moved to Cloverdale, Indiana. All in attendance agreed the change of venue was a good move! Thank you to the C Bar C crew who did a wonderful job for us. Although the location changed, the show schedule stayed basically the same. The Warm-up show was held on July 30 with almost every available IBHA class offered. Many took advantage of showing in this show as it is held in the same arena as the World Show and their was 678 IBHA points given out on this one day!!

        The World Show began on Wednesday, July 31, and again started with the speed events. Although the weather was very pleasant this year, the gamers are always happy to run first thing in the morning. The grand entry was next, with the American flag, carried by Bree McDonald, starting it off, and the IBHA flag, carried by Olivia Lolkema following. Jenna Vsetecka, 2012 Miss Buckskin World and the 2013 queen contestants made their entrance, with charter club representatives from 7 clubs after the lovely ladies. Next came the youth teams, each with their own interpretation of the theme : Who's your (Hoosier) bucky? Rick Kurzeja, World Show Manager, was then introduced. The ring stewarts, judges, arena crew, office crew and IBHA Executives were also introduced. Putting on a World Show is quite a production and it couldn't be done without everybodys help. After all were acknowledged, the a cappella version of the National Anthem as done by the Oak Ridge Boys and given to IBHA was played. The arena then cleared and the first queen's ride began. This ride is part of the competition for Miss Buckskin World. All the girls did a great job.  Now it is time to get to some serious showing! After some intense competition, the Putnam County Convention Bureau offered a nice afternoon break with an ice cream social. Ice cream of many kinds were offered to all, and it was well appreciated. Many stayed in the arena to watch the reining and western riding classes, which concluded the showing for the day. Everyone then came to the Exhibitors Party and relaxed with a chicken dinner, listened to the queen's oration and bid on items at the youth scholarship auction. Thanks to everyone's generosity over $3700.00 was raised to help our kids! Dancing then started and fun was had by all. AND THAT IS ONLY DAY 1 OF THE WORLD SHOW!!!                                                       Day 2 begins with the longe line classes. After a few hours of watching the yearlings and two year olds longe, the arena is cleared for the second queen's ride. Then it is on to the Western Pleasure classes, where the Amateur Western Pleasure was split to two goes! After lunch, the Western Trail classes finished up the IBHA classes. Now time for the added money Gold Cup and Versatility classes. The Versatility class was a new addition to this year's show and although it will be tweaked, it will definitely be back next year. What fun it was to watch these teams work together. The youth party was held Thursday night with a social gathering and free food. Mr Kevin Wuest provided the entertainment with his country singing and guitar playing. IBHA sure has some talented members! The English classes were held on Friday. After the last hunt seat trail class of the day, it was time for the other new added money classes. This time it was Walk-Trot and Select Western Pleasure. These classes were well received and should be an annual addition to the World Show. Thank you to all who attended the IBHA Convention for your input on selecting the added money classes to add to the show. Saturday is the last day of the show and begins with the dun factor class. By late afternoon everyone is done showing and has little time to get ready for the queen's ball. It is always amazing to see everyone all dressed up Saturday night....we clean up well! After a long hard week of competing it is now time to enjoy the night. Thanks to the C Bar C staff on the wonderful dinner of salmon and prime rib. It was delicious. After our bellies were full it was time to hand out the awards. Congratulations to all the winners! Go to the Queens page for coverage on the queens contest.
