TAKE PART IN SOME GREAT COMPETITION, CAMARADERIE AND FAMILY FUN AT
THE 2014 IBHA WORLD SHOW!
- AUGUST 2, 2014 C BAR C ARENA,
FOR MORE INFORMATION BEGINNING APRIL 1ST!!
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!!
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
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
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.
