    Cruzan repeats as champion

    North Port rider wins world titles in dressage

    Last year, Melissa Cruzan attended the Western Dressage World Championship Show in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, as a rookie. The hope of the 14-year-old North Port resident was appropriately modest. Return home with a ribbon. Melissa accomplished that, and a whole lot more. Riding her horse Hug Me Hotrod in the intro and basic divisions earned Melissa two junior class (14-18) world titles. She was the overall points champion and finished the top scoring Florida rider.

True Versatility

By Andrea Caudill The versatility of the American Quarter Horse is certainly a bragging point for the breed – the horse that is willing and able to do whatever task asked of it. While that is quite common, it is rare when performed on the breed’s biggest stage, a place where specialists typically have the advantage. But at the 2020 Farnam AQHA and Adequan® World Championship Shows, Colorado resident Renee Anderson and her mare, Hi Risk, were successful in two wildly different events: The duo placed ninth in the Select barrel racing and, a few days later, were finalists in the brand-new western dressage stakes class. “I want barrel horses...
