ELK GROVE — In August, one never knows what to expect with the weather. It could be a warm 106 or a cool 86. The Summer Rein show was blessed to enjoy the lower temperatures and cool breezes.

The Summer Rein show is an NRHA approved and WCRHA approved show and was judged by Johnette Burman from Montana and BJ Le Master from Sacramento over the 3 days. We started the show at 7:30 on Friday and with the cooler temps we started the show at 9 on Saturday and Sunday.

Friday Night draw party was held at the Elk Grove Milling Pavilion and hosted by Lorraine Kemper, Future Homes & Real Estate. We served 105 carnitas taco dinners and then the exhibitors were called to the stage 1 by 1 to select their positions in Non Pro and Open Futurity and received a gift card and a Brookside Wine Glass.

This year Brookside added the NRHA Green Reiner Level1 & Level2 that ran concurrent with the club classes Green as Grass and also offered the Non Pro and Open 5&U snaffle bit hackamore classes.

On Saturday the show started at 9 and finished mid afternoon. The lead line class has several participants that showed off their skills and outfits. Each exhibitor received a blue ribbon, ice cream certificate and a prize. The start time for the Brookside Breeze $1000 added Futurity was set for 4:30 and the first horse was in the pen right on time.

Savana Henderson was a Youth Rookie star on her Kioti Boon, marking a 70 to tie with Kathleen Jackson on Smart Like Steady.

Thirteen 3-year-old horses were shown and shown well either two handed in a snaffle, two-handed in the bridle or single handed in the bridle. It was an impressive field of talent of riders and horses shown. Watch out next year! The Non Pro winner was Marni Lopez and the Open winner was Mike Boyle. Congratulations! Upon completion of the show, everyone headed over to the Elk Grove Milling Pavilion and Wine Down bar to enjoy a hamburger dinner and the Brookside famous Grape Stomping competition and a birthday celebration for local trainer, Martin Padilla.

For consistency sake the show started on Sunday at 9am with the Novice Horse Non Pro and Open which was run as a concurrent class, followed by the rookie and some open classes.

It was a full day of showing finishing up with the Brookside Green as Grass horse class that is available for 1st year horses under 5 years old.

Brookside Show Park offers two high point buckles and they were presented to the winners at the Summer Rein. The Brookside Daily Double buckle requires the exhibitors to show in the Brookside Green as Grass class at the Rein for the Roses and the Summer Rein on the same horse. The exhibitor with the highest cumulative total from both shows wins the buckle and this year, the winner was Laura Johnson riding Vintage Sparks.

The 2nd buckle is for the Rookie Professional class. The Rookie Pro must show the same horse in the Rookie Pro class at Rein for the Roses, the WCRHA July Affiliate #5 and the Summer Rein. This year the Rookie Professional with the highest cumulative score was posted by Chuy Chavez, riding Smart Like Steady owned by Kathleen Jackson.
