Planning for The Good Hands National Finals 2019 is complete! We are looking forward to hosting all qualified Junior Exhibitor and Adult Equitation riders at the Mane Event Horse Show in October. Riders who participate can expect the same high caliber celebration of equitation, as presented in the past. We would not be able to highlight equitation without the help of our sponsors. Our Silver Sponsors have consistently partnered with The Good Hands to celebrate the dedication and hard work exhibited by the riders. Our committee would like to recognize and thank our Silver Sponsors:

Terry Young Photography

More than 20 years ago, Terry was the first photographer to move from the film to digital format allowing him to capture a more true to life image of the Saddlebred and Morgan breeds. Terry prefers to capture the uniqueness of the horse and rider from more artistic angles from within the arena. Terry Young Photography can be reached at terryyoungphoto.com
Snowpine Stables started as a small breeding program, which expanded into a training facility. The breeding division has had great success with their homegrown World Champions, Kiss My Cuervo and Snowpine’s Pola Vortex. Owner Rick Balcerak has used his talent as a wood craftsman to hone his skills on the lathe, which he uses to fabricate unique and beautiful show whips. Snowpine Stables has gladly sponsored these whips to be gifted to the winner of the Adult Good Hands division for the past several years.
