    BURBANK — With $11,500 in added money, a pair of National Reining Horse Association Affiliate-qualifers, and added APHA classes to accompany PCHA and AQHA ones, the Reiner Shine Horse Show had a lot going for it.

    Not to mention those talented reiners.

    Good crowds and good times filled the weekend June 4-7 at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center, as the California Reining Horse Association hit its mid-year stride with a competition that boosted members’ campaigns to qualify for year-end opportunities.

    From youth to non pros to open, competition was sharp. Ryan Kali and Ben Balow were judges.

    Elaine Davis went home with a pair of Circuit Championships with her Custom Made Nic, taking the Limited Non Pro title along with the Novice Horse Championship. Finishing reserve to Custom Made Nic in the respective classes were Rebecca Armour on San Cielo Rey in the Limited Non Pro competition, and Taylor Stephens in the Novice Horse.

    Another dual-circuit champion was Taylor Sheridan riding Crome Plated Step to titles in both Rookie Level 1 and Rookie Level 2 Divisions. Micki Quinn rode her Hickory Holly Tag to the Reserve Championship behind Crome Plated Step in the Level 1, and Brian Unger rode Smokee San Badger to the reserve in the Level 2.

    14-18 youth rider Taylor Stephens rides her Custom Big Chex to the Novice Horse Non Pro Reserve title behind Elaine Davis and Custom Made Nic.

    While the competition was the focus, the event’s mission included fun — and, as always, the CRHA did not disappoint. A CRHA-sponsored barbeque for exhibitors Saturday night was a hit, as was the L.A. Equestrian Center’s broadcast of the Belmont, which led to loud Triple Crown cheers.

    NRHA affiliate high-point earners from both the Reiner Shine and the previous event, the CRHA Bunny Slide, will advance to the NRHA Southwest Regional Affiliate Finals scheduled for Oct. 21-25 at the LAEC.

    Other reiners who shined at the Reiner Shine included DeWayne Copus on his Daddy Day Care, who topped Marilyn Scheffers on her This Belles Smokin for the Non Pro Circuit Championship, and Tom Foran, who claimed the Open Circuit Champion on Gail Hutcherson’s Wimpys Whiz Steps. Foran also took the reserve on Sheridan’s Crome Plated Step.

    The top youth competitors included Stephens, who took the 14-18 Reserve Circuit Championship on her Custom Big Chex.

    Kelly Carson captured the Circuit Championship in Youth 13-under on her Great Gullo Pine, and Peyton McGowan finished reserve on her GS Red Corvette.

    Next up for CRHA will be the Slide On The Beach at the Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center, set for Aug. 1.
