Sister rivalry


Non Pro siblings Ingrid Vangelos and Ruth Noring may fi nally face off in the SCRCHA Saddle Shoot Out


T from releases and staff reports


EMECULA—Ingrid Vangelos can remember her childhood days in


the Bay Area when she and her sister, Ruth Noring, chased one another around the house with horse whips. "We fought like cats and dogs,"


laughs Ingrid. "But then, from the time we were teen-agers on, we've been super close. No one was closer."


The siblings have a horse-rid- ing history, from their fi rst


petition in the arena. Never. Whether it was the fi ve-year age spread when they were girls, or the diff erent NRCHA divisions in which they compete now as adults because of show earnings (Ingrid in Non Pro Limited, Ruth in 5000 Non Pro), they've never faced the same judges in the same arena. But that could change this


month at the SCRCHA Non Pro Saddle Shoot Out, set for Oct. 22 at Casner Ranch in Temecula in a big weekend that will also feature the 2017 Cut For A Cause, benefi t ing Valley Center 4-H. "We'll both be going for the


saddle," says Ingrid, who won the 2013 Saddle Shoot Out on Smooth As A Diamond, her geld- ing bet er known as "Slim." The year before, Ruth had won


the Saddle Shoot Out on Tommy Olena, but Ingrid was showing a reiner that year and did not compete. "When my husband Jim and I


moved to Temecula nine years ago, I got my sister into this, and we have had a lot of good sister time," says Ingrid. "It's been a lot of fun. We defi nitely have come a long way in this whole deal." The competitiveness that

ponies and hunter-jumper action to a point aſt er college where horses vanished for a while. They've come full circle aſt er rekindling their horse lives, and now are both active competitors as members of the Southern California Reined Cow Horse Association. But one thing that has never


happened all these years, Ingrid says, is head-to-head com-


played out in their childhood home as girls may still exist, but it doesn't go past the confi nes of the show pen. It can't -- Ruth, of Laguna Beach, stays with her sister in Temecula all three days of every SCRCHA show. "She stays with us every sin-


gle weekend for three days for every horse show, so we're good," Ingrid says. "We're not chasing each other around the house anymore." More online: http://bit.ly/708A_USE
