The culmination of the American Competitive Trail Horse Association's seventh competitive season was led by a sweep of southern belles and their AQHA horses. The Lone Star state of Texas is the home to a pair of National Champions in ACTHA's 2014-2015 Competitive Season:

Open National Champion Kathie Norman and her AQHA mare Handy Dulce Bar from Malakoff, Texas

Pleasure National Champion Dr. Susan Wingo, with her AQHA mare Cat Bar Bobby from Karnack, Texas.

Not only are these two ACTHA National Champions from the same state, but the pair have been friends for more than twenty five years. Together, they set their sights on winning their respective divisions in the 2014-2015 competitive year and competed side by side throughout the southwest to achieve their goal.

Completing the trio of southern belles is ACTHA Junior Champion fifteen year old Elizabeth Bazemore of Micanopy, Florida and her AQHA gelding Cookie Monster. Quite the accomplishment for this young rising star in competitive trail riding as the number of competitors in the junior division of ACTHA continues to grow.

ACTHA President Robin Tilghman stated, "We are extremely proud of all our competitors and the goals they have achieved this season. The dedication our members and volunteers bring to our mission of ending equine unemployment while raising funds for charity truly demonstrates that together we can make a difference in the lives of equines in need."
