The 2017 MHSA Stock Seat Medallion Finals were once again held at the Central States Fall Classic. Under the leadership of Lynn McCallister and Lenard Davenport, this show is rapidly becoming an exhibitor favorite since its beginning in 2015.
Despite the cold temperatures, the show ran a full three-day schedule, with many exhibitors and horses competing for top honors.
There were six entries in the MHSA Stock Seat Medallion Finals, and each and every one of these fine riders performed to perfection. The Championship trophy and $500 MHSA scholarship went to Grace Parsons, who also won these Medallion Finals in 2016. Grace rides under the instruction of Brenda Benner of the Brenda Benner Stables from Columbia, Missouri. Reserve honors went to Sabrina Young, who is instructed by Kris Wallace of the Columbia Equestrian Center, also from Columbia. Rounding out the Top Ten were Maia Cheong, instructed by Suzanne Marshall of Jefferson City, MO, Cole Rackers, Holly Goen and Melissa Richter, all instructed by Kris Wallace.
MHSA wishes to congratulate all our riders, and wish them the very best in 2018!
