On day 264 of my reign as the 2014 All American Quarter Horse Congress Queen, I make the drive from The Big A in Georgia to Louisville, Kentucky. I was asked to make this appearance all the way back in February at the Dixie Nationals, so I was excited that it fit so perfectly into my schedule. I arrived in Louisville at about midnight and I was up bright and early the next morning to head to the show. Upon arriving at the show, I met the Kentucky Quarter Horse Association Queen, Miss Miranda Richardson. I had a great time answering her questions about the Congress Queen Contest and presenting awards. I also had the pleasure of meeting the Kentucky Quarter Horse Queen Committee. Upon the conclusion of the classes on Friday, many of the youth got ready for the drill team competition. Friday evening was full of excitement! All of the teams had truly outstanding costumes and performances. It was easy to tell how much time and energy the 4-H members put into the performances and I was fortunate to see the excitement on their faces as they entered the show arena. By the end of the evening, the arena floor was covered in glitter! It was a privilege to present the awards for this competition. Saturday was the conclusion of the week long show as many of the english classes took place. I always embrace the moments I spend at 4-H events, as the youth are the future of our industry. I met so many great people during this short trip. Thank you Stephanie and Jenna Meredith for making this appearance possible for me and to the Kentucky 4-H show staff for the warm welcome and great hospitality during my stay!
