TEMECULA — Normally, a rising fever is a bad thing, but the California Reining Horse Association was excited to have its Fiesta Fever show on the increase.

Club secretary Marilyn Scheffers reported the event is twice of 2014’s turnout, as more than 100 Southern California reiners flocked to Tucalota Creek Ranch for over 150 goes judged by Monica Albair.

Spur straps were awarded to champions, as CRHA members also earned points for year-end awards and a chance to ride in the Reiner of the Year contest in this October’s CRHA Challenge Reining Horse Show. An exhibitor pizza party during the event and an open wine tasting room at Tucalota Creek Ranch added to the festivities.

The big guns were on hand and meant business, and Tom Foran claimed the Open Championship on Taylor Sheridan’s Crome Plated Step. Pat Wickenheiser was reserve on Carla Meyer’s Whiz N Westcoast.

In non pro action, Lisa Hernandez was champion on Easy Otie Buckles, and Sally Kadison took the Intermediate, Limited and Primetime Non Pro titles on Whiz It On Sunday.

Next up for CRHA will be its popular Reiner Shine show, an $11,500-added money event and NRHA Affiliate qualifier show June 4-7 at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center. Ryan Kali and Ben Balow will judge.
