AFTER TRADING SPOTS


High-flying Susie Hutchison and the venerable “Woody”. The presentation, made to


his career-long partner, Susie Hutchison, was a highlight of the Jan.5 Awards Banquet held in San Diego. “There was never a course I


walked that looked too high or too wide—that I didn’t know we could do it,” said Hutchison, still a top competitor on the circuit. Her first win on the 16-1- hand “Woody,” in the 1987 Derby in Pebble Beach, came just


days aſter the German-bred Westphalian had arrived from Europe. Their final victory at the 1997 Los Angeles National Grand Prix capped a career that featured 20 grand prix wins, plus qualifications for the World Equestrian Games and three World Cup Finals, the 1990 PCHA Horse of the Year Award, and the 1992 AGA Rider of the Year honor. In 1997, Breyer Animal Creations issued the Samsung


BACK-AND-FORTH atop the National Reined Cow Horse Association World’s Greatest Horseman competition, Kelby Phillips and Hickory Holly Time (One Time Pepto x Hickorys Holly Cee) edged Paso Robles trainer Phillip Ralls and Call Me Mitch (Metallic Cat x Miss Hickory Hill) for the presti- gious title during the NRCHA’s Celebration of Champions Feb. 9-17 at the Will Rogers Coliseum in Fort Worth, Texas. Both entries in the bridle


horse competition finished top three of each of the four phases— herd, rein and cow work plus steer-stopping—with Phillips, from Bend, Ore., coming out in the final composite, 890.5 to 888.0. Phillips and Hickory Holly Time, owned by DT Horses, LLC, earned top prize of $40,000. The duo won the herd work (220.0) and steer work (224.5) while tak- ing second in the reining (222.5) and third in cow work (223.5). Ralls and Call Me Mitch,


owned by Estelle Roitblat, received $25,000 for second place aſter a similar track, fin- sihing first in herd work (220.5) and cow work (225.0) and third in both rein work (221.5) and steer work (221.0).


JANUARY IS THE TIME of


year when hopes are high and anticipation for the show season rises. For many Arabian and Half-Arabian competitors, it’s also the doorstep to the vener- able Scotdale Arabian Show,so any schooling in a live arena is golden.


Phillip Ralls and Call Me Mitch, here winning the Magnificent 7 at Horse Expo last June, stated the year with a near-miss at the NRCHA World’s Greatest Horseman competition.


Regions 1 and 2 of the Arabian Horse Asso- ciation found a great mid-January tune-up for Scotsdale at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center that atracted a variety of barns— including the ribbon-clad Priceless Arabians exhibitors (inset—top, from left) Madi Fenton, Braden Hardy, Margo Minissian, Cori Johns, Samantha Price, Crystal Garcia, Ellen Dickson, Kelly Gragg, Nayri Kalayjian, and Shannon Tatum, along with (botom from left) Debbie Price, Ashley Price and Natalia Minissian—and Lucas and Gwendolyn.
