Tryon Hounds Hunter Pace results

Anne Pierce, as always, did a great job taking entries, checking Coggins papers and making sure all releases were signed.  Riders generously gave $2 in addition to their entry fee towards PEER – Polk Equine Emergency Rescue fund.

Riders made their way to the starting line to the infamous Joey Cabaniss who gave instructions for starting and where they would be finishing, plus other little tid bits in Joey fashion. Don West had a big job in helping to direct the parking of the many trailers as they seemed to come all at once.

Grill masters Kerry Holmberg, Jordan Hicks and Richard Pierce made sure all were served their choice of hamburgers or hot dogs with helpers Wes Sweet, Jen Hicks and Anita Williamson.  Roberta McKinney’s brownies were quite popular and did not last long and the same was true for Stephanie Schulte deviled eggs. The flowers that decorated the table were beautifully arranged by Stephanie Schulte’s.

At the midway point, all riders were greeted by Skip Leck and Jim Sumrell at the check point located on the Gallagher farm.  Water and juice were offered for the brief check before riders were sent off to finish the course and back to Joey.

The course was ridden and timed by Tryon Hounds’ Whipper-In, Kasey Minnick, for a time of 1 hour 23 minutes.  Beautifully done! Unless proven otherwise, Bonnie Lingerfelt had the fastest time.
