Calizona members win year-end CSHA awards

Calizona Members won 2009 California State Horseman’s Association Awards for Region 11 by showing their Appaloosas on an All Breed Circuit through the Moreno Valley TrailSeekers. Congratulations to Joe Brooks, CJ Brooks, Diane Dodd, and Stephanie Vrabel! Throughout 2009, they exhibited their Appys at shows held by the TrailSeekers ending up with several year end high point awards. This is promotion outside the Appaloosa Breed circuit and demonstrates that the Appaloosa and our members retain the “Top Spot”! Year end award winners received embroidered day sheets, halter bags, garment bags, silver platters and a collage of photos throughout the show year.

Joe Brooks showing Lads Blue Eyed Jewel garnered Division Champion in Halter-Open, Division Reserve Champion Junior Halter-Amateur and Class Champion Halter Non-Stock Type. CJ Brooks with Lads All Star is the Division Champion in English 35 and Over and Class Champion English Equitation 35 & Over.
