SAVE THE DATE! PCQHA Annual Awards Banquet is tentatively schedule for January 18, 2020 at the Los Alamitos Racetrack, Los Alamitos, CA. . . . details to follow!
The Pacific Coast Quarter Horse Association held its’ annual HALL OF FAME induction ceremony on Friday, October 4, during the FALL CLASSIC Quarter Horse show at the Paso Robles Events Center.
This years’ inductions included an early PCQHA member, Art Miller, whose early involvement in PCQHA included a successful career riding and showing on the cutting arena, along with parades and a large car sales business in California. His dedication to the American Quarter Horse, along with his support for the industry will long be remembered. As his son shared, “Dad’s personality was bigger than life, a life he loved because of the great horses, family and friends he developed. He was quite the talk traveling from parades to the Cutting arena!”
Our second inductee was a special horse called Bell Of The Barn, owned by Christine Hocutt-Senteney. This incredible mare earned numerous all around awards and multiple AQHA world championship honors in both the amateur arena and open arena. She and Chris trained with Highpoint Performance horses (Jason Martin/Charlie Cole). Their memorable career was remembered by all with fondness, admiration and respect. “Bell” was bred once and her colt went on to have a huge career with Chris, also winning several world championship honors. As Chris said, “She changed the direction of my life and when my parents thought I should have been investing in a condo, I bought Bell. It was the best decision and brought many magical rides for Chris.” We congratulate Bell and Chris for sharing their magical journey.
Next up in the PCQHA Hall of Fame inductions was another magical mare named Glowin Passthe Bar, owned by Don Lehman. This mare was purchased as a yearling from David James during the AQHA world show. “We actually traded her for a mare we had brought to trade at the sale” shared Don, “and during a huge snowstorm. She immediately showed a willing and smart personality that went on to earn her many awards and top ten awards for trainer Judy Bonham and Don’s daughter, Jennifer”.
She then went on to earn Don huge honors in the select arena with numerous top ten, reserve world championship honors in both trail and showmanship. “She changed my life” said Don. You see Glowie gave Don a career in the trail course design arena, where his expertise is world renowned. She also helped many young and old riders learn to ride. Her willingness and talent will long be remembered.
