CKlasek Design, LTD. has generously donated a custom painting of The 2014 Good Hands Finals Champion and their winning horse as a keepsake. Cathy Klasek, artist and owner of CKlasek Designs, LTD., is a well known exhibitor and contributor to the Saddlebred industry. She, also, enjoys watching the poise and precision of our talented equitation athletes. And, as of this year, has a new appreciation of the entire process. Oh Night Divine (Yahtzee), a horse bred by Cathy, made his debut as an equitation horse this season. Trained by Toni Utoft, but now under the direction of Kent Swalla, Yahtzee is making his presence felt having won the championship ribbon at Lexington Junior League this year with Gabby Snyder. Some examples of Cathy’s beautiful paintings can be seen below!
We are so thankful for generous sponsors, like Cathy, for their time and talents. The Good Hands Finals will be held at the Mane Event Horse Show, October 22-26th, in Springfield, Illinois. We look forward to welcoming each rider and witnessing the beauty as our bright young stars show us the precision and elegance of equitation.
