Blowing Rock, NC - August 16, 2007 - Last week was the second show in the Blowing Rock Charity Horse Show series, held in the picturesque mountains of North Carolina on August 8-12, 2007.

He also won two grand hunter championships, was named the Best Child Rider on a Pony, and the Leading Junior/Pony Hunter Rider for the two-week series.

Anne Gardner's Showboat won three classes in the Large Pony Hunters for the division championship this week. Added to their success from last week, Showboat and Casady were named the Grand Large Pony Hunter Champions and the Overall Grand Pony Hunter Champions, meaning they were the best combination in five divisions of pony competition. Showboat and Casady were awarded the Farnley Rutile Perpetual Trophy.

In the Small/Medium Green Pony Hunters, Casady rode First Impression for Katie Dinan LLC. They were champion in the division this past week after winning three classes, and they won the Grand Green Pony Hunter Championship. For their grand championship, Casady and First Impression were awarded the Cymraeg Rain Beau Memorial Trophy.

In the Large Green Ponies, Casady and Watch Me, owned by Robert Hunt, were reserve champions after they won two classes.

In the Medium Ponies, Casady and Jimmy and Danielle Torano's Unexpected won the championship the second week. They were also named the Grand Medium Pony Hunter Champions.

For being named the Best Child Rider on a Pony, Casady received the Evelyn O. Faulkner Perpetual Trophy. He was also awarded the Jennifer Cox Memorial Trophy for being the leading junior/pony hunter rider with the most points out of all the junior hunter and pony hunter divisions.

Lauren Hogan of Tampa, FL, rode Cedar Springs Pen Pal for Tyler Green to the reserve championship in the Large Pony Hunters. Ashley Lecroy piloted Lauren Steiner's Popstar to the reserve championship in the Small/Medium Green Pony Hunters and the reserve championship in the Medium Pony Hunters.
