    TULSA, Okla. – Riders from the Golden State shined at the 2011 Palomino Horse Breeders Association World Championship Horse Show, held July 23-30 at Expo Square at the Built Ford Tough Livestock Complex.

    Among the World Champions from California was Alyssa Todora of Norco riding Ima Blond Investment. Under trainer Kerri McKay of Kerri McKay Quarter Horses, Todora and Ima Blonde Investment won a World Championship in Hunter Under Saddle 13-under and also a Reserve in Novice Youth Hunter Under Saddle, 18-under. Her mother, Taryn Todora, also fared well, riding Ima Blonde Investment to Reserve World title in both amateur trail and NSBA World Champion. This year’s PHBA World Championship Show was the first Palomino World competition for both of them.
