2013 GHRA World Show

The Gypsy Horse Registry of America’s World Show has crowned new World Grand Champions every year for the last 5 years during the Fort Worth Stock Show, but this year was a very special year for a very special little girl and horse.

Kelly Girl and Hallie had been practicing since November for the Youth English Riding Class at the GHRA World Show. Although Hallie has been showing horses since she was 5 she had never competed in English riding classes and although Kelly Girl was 10 she had never been shown at any kind of show. Hallie and Kelly competed well in the Youth English Class the first night placing fourth and third in Youth Showmanship, but they had no idea what was to befall them in the upcoming days. Brenda reluctantly entered Kelly Girl in the Halter Mare Class after Hallie asked to show her in the class. Hallie dressed in her sparkles and bling and Kelly Girl with her amazing mane flowing stepped out into the arena amidst a myriad of oohs and aahs. With the professionalism and perfection of the professional trainers she was showing against this little 9 year old set her horse up for the three judges. The crowd roared when Hallie and Kelly Girl’s number was announced first place in 5 and Over A Mares. But that wasn’t all Hallie and Kelly Girl went back into the arena for the Senior Grand Championship Mare and again Hallie and Kelly’s number was announced for the Grand Champion Senior Mare. But that still wasn’t all!  They went back in the arena for GHRA World Grand Champion Mare and once again the magical number 561 was read and Hallie and Kelly Girl had won again!!!

4C Kelly Girl and Hallie were then presented the prestigious “Chywoon Stud Trophy” which is awarded to the Grand Champion Mare. In Chywoon’s opinion these mares are the future of the breed and the quality of America’s home bred stock. The winner is proof that a breeder understands the sense and purpose of this unique breed. What a dream come true for this little 9 year old girl and her beautiful 10 year old mare.

The next day word had spread as the stands were packed with spectators waiting to see if the 9 year old and the mare named Kelly Girl that had won Brenda’s heart in 2007 and now was winning more hearts in 2013 could continue their success. The cameras were flashing and visitors were cheering as the duo won again and again. Hallie and Kelly Girl took first place in Broken Color Mares and Youth Western Pleasure. Brenda Hearon with 4C Finn & Fable’s Feather took first place in In Hand Trail and that is a class that Brenda has never lost with a horse she has trained. Corry Hearon with yearling colt 4C Rockin’ Red Boomer placed 2nd in the 2 and Under Stallion class. 4C’s was also awarded the first annual Best Decorated Stall.

Two thousand thirteen will be a year that will not be easily forgotten for 4C’s Gypsy Horses and little Hallie Hearon!!
