Black Creek rider wins world championship

Candice Hall reserve champion at American Quarter Horse Association show

 

Dr. Candice Hall of Black Creek captured the reserve champion title and first-place Intermediate title in amateur western riding at the 2012 Bank of America Amateur American Quarter Horse Association World Championship Show on Tuesday, Nov. 6 in Oklahoma City.

Hall showed the American Quarter Horse Ima Struttin Machine a 2001 bay gelding owned by Hall and Cory Seebach of Black Creek. Ima Struttin Machine, sired by A Good Machine and out of Conclusive Monica, was bred by Don and Martha Milby of Louisville, Kentucky.

In the amateur western riding class, 42 entries competed for world champion honoUrs and a purse of $12,427.80. Reserve world champions received a prize package that included a custom-designed silver trophy, Montana Silversmiths buckle, sponsored by The American Quarter Horse Journal, specially designed logoed jacket, courtesy of Cripple Creek Outerwear, a WeatherBeeta embroidered blanket and a medallion.

The Intermediate awards program is designed to recognize exhibitors who have never placed in the top 10 at an AQHA World Show in the particular class in which they are competing. Intermediate exhibitor status is based only on an exhibitor’s lifetime, combined world show record, not on the number of points he/she has accumulated. Intermediate accomplishments will appear on the official records of the horse and exhibitor.

Intermediate first place winners in each class receive an eight-inch clear globe in addition to a specially-designed patch that can be placed on a qualifiers jacket.

The AQHA World Show is the pinnacle event for American Quarter Horse owners and exhibitors around the world, who must qualify for the event by earning a predetermined number of points to compete in each of the classes representing halter, English and western disciplines.

More than 3,590 entries from the United States, Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Italy, Mexico, United Kingdom and the Netherlands are competing for 97 world championships at this year’s event, Nov. 2-17 at State Fair Park in Oklahoma City.
