QA Fair English horse show expands
Open show added
CENTREVILLE — The Queen Anne’s County Fair English 4-H and open shows took place Tuesday, Aug. 9. The open show was a firsttime addition to the equine offerings at fair. The open show allows for additional entries beyond 4-H members. Many of the 4-H’ers did both the 4-H and open classes.
The judge for the English show was Sandy Weinreich of Parkton (Baltimore County). Weinreich is a “carded judge” in several different breed registries, including American Quarter Horse Assocation and Ponies of America. She travels the nation judging shows.
Of the English show, Weinreich said, “I’m blessed to do a shows like this county fair. Not only do I get to introduce the values of agriculture to the 4-H children who are showing, but to the spectators who come to watch. My job includes helping everyone to learn more about the sport. Judging at county fairs is my favorite place to serve. I appreciate all the volunteers that help put on these wonderful fairs. This is a great experience for all who come.”
In past years, Weinreich has judged at the Cecil County Fair and Delaware State Fair, and last year, she judged the New York State Fair horse show.
Commenting about the equestrian skill levels at the QA Fair English show, “There are a number of riders who are very talented and I could see that some have been showing at different breed shows,” said Weinreich. “I could also see there are many who are just starting out as equestrians in 4-H. Regardless of their level right now, what’s most important is that they learn to improve and do better, learn sportsmanship and learn camaraderie with others they’re here with. The county fair should most certainly be fun!”
The English show included flat and jumping classes. All halter classes were reserved for the open show held on Thursday.
