RESULTS HISTORY
The 18th State Championships were once again celebrated in fine style displaying a fantastic number of horses competing over the two days at the pristine surroundings of the Wallangarra Pony Club grounds.  Vicki Reid from Victoria was invited to adjudicate for the weekend and with once again having the inclusion of the Elementary Hack  section on the Sunday it once again provided a good number of ridden horses overall. 

The show was opened with the Partbred classes and unfortunately numbers were still low. Adina Park Exquisite Elle was the Champion Led exhibit over newcomer Roseaker Raine Storm.  Iconic Valor made a clean sweep of the Race conditioned classes to take the Champion honors over Classic Air for Reserve. I Am Zac always demands attention and even though the only stallion entered was a worthy recipient of his Champion Stallion award. The competition was about to step up with the volume of the entries being in the senior mare and gelding classes and with the addition of a a nice bunch of newer horses taking up challenging the older showies. Although she had some stiff competition it was to be a  third State Title to the big moving mare AP Burlesque for Champion Mare with Living On Love securing Reserve Champion over some lovely typey mares. The gelding classes were divided into three age groups with the some new faces coming through for a crack at Champion. Swagga (4 - 8yrs) had a tough class against some of the tallest geldings in his class, Desilvio (9 - 12yrs) backed up his recent success from the Scorcher and Rocket Reign (13yrs and Over) coming up trumps in the older class. It would be the younger boys take out the honours with Swagga again providing some fantastic moves to take another Champion Gelding title with Vallentino entering the ring to Reserve Gelding award.  All four Champion winners were presented for Grand Champion judging with the judge asking for an individual run into the ring by each exhibit followed by a presentation on side profile and yet another workout. After a long deliberation through the exhibits it would be the flashy Stallion I Am Zac called forwarded to be sashed the Grand Champion Led Exhibit for 2018.
The Partbred ridden classes were then completed and with just the one entry Roseaker Raine Storm was duly sashed Smartest On Parade and Champion Ridden Partbred Exhibit.

The Champion Best Presented of the show followed with the immaculate Vallentino and Alex Markowski winning Champion from AP Equisite Elle and Kristie Morrone taking Reserve Champion with the judge commenting the standard of presentation throughout the classes was exceptional.
The miscellanous classes then preceeded with the judge not budging from her previous decision it would be the stallion I Am Zac taking out Champion in each section (track To Hack, WA Bred & Led Show Horse) he was eligible with Swagga also taking reserve in each of these sections.  The  big nmre AP Burlesque was successful in the Show Hunter Championship and Village Conquerer awarded Reserve. The Handler classes followed with Champion Junior Handler going to Kaytlin Holland and Kiara Becsi was successful in being awarded Reserve. The Champion Senior handler went to Catherine Macey   whilst Reserve Champion was awarded to Amie Stanhope

Sunday’s proceedings started with the Elementary Hack classes that were well supported. Judge Vicki Reid gave every competitor the opportunity to improve throughout the day with offering workouts in each class. There was an obvious standout that caught the judge's eye as Alex Markowski's impressive looking gelding Vallentino took out the Smartest On parade and won every class he entered. While some horses worked well early and others worked better with every class it made for an interesting Championship. Rocket Reign, Daddys Paycheque, Black Pontiac and Desilvio joined Vallentino to work on the ring for the title. Vallentio worked beautifully to take Champion Honours with Desilvio working his best to take Reserve Champion

The Intermediate classes had four horses entered with each horse being at different stages in the career and education under saddle and experience in the show ring. Global Alliance and Rosemount Lustre were the more seasoned of the four with Feel The Roth having limited outings in the past 18 months due to self inflicted injuries and then Flyalong Falcon in his first season of showing and least experience. Flyalong Falcon and Kristie Morrone took the judges eye to take Smartest on Parade and while he started the first class a little tense to finish in second place the pair went on to win all of their remaining classes. All four entrants qualified for the Champion Workout and while Rosemount Lustre started a little uptight in her earlier classes performed a lovely workout. Unfortunately Global Alliance started better but by the end was over it and didnt work as well as usual. Feel the Roth also started the day beautifully but mixed a few little errors in his final workout. Meanwhile Flyalong Falcon was finally getting warmed up and executed a lovely workout and was duly sashed Champion intermediate Hack with the consistent Feel the Roth taking out Reserve.

The rider classes were then judged in between the Intermedaite and Open section with only a handful of senior riders taking part. It would be the more professional and seasoned rider in Kirsty Padberg taking Champion from Jacinta Pope for Reserve. The Open classes unfortunately had a drop in competitors due to a couple being out of action for various reasons.
Although only two horses competed Scoot On By and AP Burlesque have been in a tough duel all season with turning the tables on each other throughout the previous shows. Today would be no exception, as the pair did not have to compete directly against each other until the Championship the judge made the pair work for each class with an extensive workout.  While both horses blew out some cobwebs in the earlier classes they were beginning to put in some nice work in time for a tantalizing final showoff. The final workout was decided on the ring with several lengthens at the trot and canter. Finally after an extensive time on the ring it would be AP Burlesque called for the Champion Open Hack Title and a duly deserved Scoot On By for Reserve.
With both horses prepared and ridden by Kristie Morrone the Grand Champion would be decided on a final workout with once again lots of canter and a lengthen at both gaits. With that bit more experience and ground covering movement the bold moving mare AP Burlesque was sashed Grand Champion Ridden for the second year running in as many attempts.
