The second Women LUV Horses again proves to be an exciting success

OCALA, FLORIDA (December 15, 2008) – Lynn Palm’s Women LUV Horses Retreat December 5-7 in City of Industry, California, was a great success and strong foundation for upcoming events. The founder of Women LUV Horses, Palm stated that “I was so proud to have coordinated such an event and it was exceptionally well run. Although the attendance was disappointing, we only received positive feedback. It is tough with today’s economy, but that makes us work harder and I plan to keep the concept alive. Our sponsors and vendors were very pleased, the clinicians were awesome and the contests were just fun! The Fashion for Fillies Show and Cowgirl Party were all I expected-first class.”

The Cowgirl Party Charity Event provided attendees with a fabulous catered dinner and entertainment including bridleless exhibitions, vaulting, mustang exhibitions, great music and guest speakers. The silent auction showcasing 142 items raised more than $10,000 for several charities, including the AQHA America's Horse Cares, AQHA Professional Horsemen's Crisis Fund, American Paint Horse Association Foundation (APHA), and Wrangler Tough Enough to Wear Pink (TEWP) for the Susan G. Komen for the cure.

A first of its kind, the Supreme HorseWoman Champion Corinne Elser of Burns, Oregon received nearly $5,000 in awards for accomplishments riding her mustang “Dolly”. Wylene Wilson of Queen Creek, Arizona rode her mustang “Filthy Rich” to qualify for the finals where she cinched the Reserve Championship. Top Six Finalist, Janet Titus said: “What a wonderful experience with truly amazing horsewomen. I'll cherish the memories from WLH for the rest of my life…and you put on a fantastic, organized show, with great prizes!”

New to the west coast, Women LUV Horses hosted the “All-Around Bridleless Championship” judged by Margo Ball of Fort Collins, CO and other lady clinicians. The All-Around Bridleless Champion was Madelyn Wagner of Valley Center, California. Linda Laird of Bishop, California showed her mule, Sweet Melissa to an impressive Reserve Champion finish. Youth competitor Alex Simpson said: “I was the only JR rider at Women LUV Horses…the staff and the other competitors made me feel very welcome! Everyone was very supportive…and I even learned some new things that I am now using when I work with my horse. I will definitely be back next year!!!!”
