Mounted Patrol had Bedouin from Muskogee, OK, and Moila from St. Joseph, MO, as the only two participants in the Drill Competition and Parade. Moila placed first in both the Drill and Parade with Bedouin a close second in Competition.
We hosted a Barn Party on Thursday evening enjoying the local Joe’s Kansas City Bar-B-Que. That evening we were pleased to have a large representation from Abu Bekr even though they were unable to bring their White Horse Patrol.
Saturday evening the participants and guests dined at Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse and we were pleased to welcome a large group from India, Oklahoma City, OK, even though they too were unable to bring their horses.
Our venue in Gardner, KS, was very accommodating, especially since the weather was gorgeous for the competition. We are looking forward in two years to exceptional accommodations at Abu Bekr, Sioux City, IA.
CSSA LOH convention went without a hitch.
