From the georgialadiesaside website: On December 13th, 2008 GALA President Stephanie Hutcherson and her Appaloosa gelding, Romeo opened the Winter Classic Interscholastic Equestrian Show at Sonora Farms in Canton, GA by presenting the colors. Stephanie and Romeo carried the American flag and rode aside to a very traditional version of the National Anthem. Stephanie rode in a reproduction black Civil War habit. Once the colors were presented Stephanie quickly changed into 21rst century attire and co-coached two middle and two high school equestrian teams. Romeo was entered in one of the classes with a beginner high school girl and they received a blue ribbon in their class.
