Emily Adolf Wins SWRHA Short Stirrup Ancillary on Chex This Melody Out
With a score of 71.5, Emily Adolf won the Southwest Reining Horse Association Short Stirrup ancillary class. Emily was riding her horse Chex This Melody Out, and won a plaque from the National Reining Horse Association.
He worked hard today and did really well. I felt really confident about his run, said the 11-year-old. I thank Sam Holloway, Abby Fisher, and my mom Linda Adolf for all their help.
Emily has only owned Chex This Melody Out, nicknamed Macho, for a few months. I just got him, but hes been really good for me the few times Ive shown him, she said.
Emily aspires to eventually qualify Macho, by Chex That Out and out of Tularosa Melody, for the American Quarter Horse Association Youth World Championship Show.
Finishing in a three-way tie for the Reserve title with a 71 were Dani Latimer on Get On Whiz It and Electric Getaway, both owned by Elaine Latimer, and Kenleigh Wells on The Ultimate Magnum, owned by Rayelynne Wells. Get On Whiz It is by Topsail Whiz and out of Getaway Lark; Electric Getaway is by Jacs Electric Spark and out of Getaway Lark; and The Ultimate Magnum is by Magnum Chic Dream and out of Queen De La Club.
Thanks to Sliding K Performance Horses Kimberly Ferguson, every Short Stirrup entry received custom halters.

Primarily designed to host horse and livestock shows, recent renovations to the facility have given it the flexibility to host even more events. Along with the space upgrades that allow the facility to stall 500 horses, the addition of air conditioning provides Hardy Murphy with the competitive ability to attract national and regional events. The renovations have resulted in a premier competitive equine facility.
