Battle of the Breeds

The action is underway at Spruce Meadows in Calgary, Alberta, for this year’s Masters Tournament and Battle of the Breeds. In this photo, Jesse Halabura, Saskatoon, SK, competes in the Jeopardy Jumping aboard “Roadster.” The timed event features several options throughout the course, requiring a contestant to decide whether to take the safer jump worth a few points or a riskier jump worth more points (thus the jeopardy). Denice Jones of Sherwood Park, AB, also competed for Team Appaloosa in this class.

I believe this is the 19th year for the Battle, sponsored by TELUS. Appaloosas have a sterling record overall, but got off to a slow start today. We’ll see how they fare tomorrow in Precision Driving and the barrel race.
