The Horse Association of Central Kootenay held its first show of the season recently at the Nelson Riding Grounds. The 15th Annual HACK Show was a great success, according to host and organizer Pam Malekow.

“It was a gorgeous weekend — bright and sunny,” she said. “And I am so thankful everyone except a couple of us got out before the thunderstorm and tornado winds.”

Malekow said judge Linda Smith from Cranbrook was “delightful” with everyone. “Very helpful, kind, and encouraging words were said each and every class. Everyone did amazing, and we all had a lot of fun.”

English and Western Dressage was held Saturday Morning with Longe Line, Handy Horse and Trail classes in the afternoon, and English and Western flat classes on Sunday.

The judge “really put everyone through their paces” with Halter, Showmanship, Equitation, Pleasure, and many more, Malekow said.
