    ELK GROVE – Good weather, good times and above all, good competition, added up to a highly successful 2017 Rein For The Roses May 4-7 at Brookside Equestrian Park.

    Members and horses started prepping and showing in 90 degree temperature. However in the classic Brookside micro climate, the days cooled off and we were lovely. Host Bill Madden of Brookside greeted reiners with new sand footing in the warm-up arena – a one-of-a-kind warm-up arena for reiners in Northern California.

    “It brings us back to Brookside every year,” said JoAnn Campas, President of the West Coast Reining Horse Association – the largest affiliate in the National Reining Horse Association. “Bill always does his best to provide the best warm-up and show conditions possible. The Sugar Shack is also new at Brookside. What a welcome treat right in the center of the action, providing all sorts of espresso concoctions. “

    Rein For The Roses showcases Brookside Derby and Maturity Classes. The Open Maturity on Friday Night Champion was Martin Padilla showing I’m Magnificent owned by Hanna Hopper. The Friday Non Pro Derby Level 4 Champion was Sandy Bentien on her home grown Gotta Twist It up. Level 1 Champion was Jim Grech showing Shining Boon Chick.
