Third Stacy Memorial Horse Show will be biggest yet

This November marks the third year since Stacy Ollenberger died from Cushing’s disease, and the North Peace Light Horse Association is honouring her by hosting the Third Annual Stacy Memorial Horse Show this weekend, Sept. 14 to 16.

The show is a part of the Peace Country Show Circuit, and a qualifyer for the B.C. Summer Games, which attracts a lot of riders to the show and makes it the success it’s been since its inception.

“Every show is better and better, and we’re expecting a bigger show than last year,” said Show Manager Jennifer Paluck.

Each show, Pluck takes time to speak to the riders about Cushing’s disease, helping to raise awareness of the deadly disease.

The show honours Ollenberger by presenting the Stacy Memorial Award at the end of each show to the person who “helps without asking, and goes the extra mile to help someone in need,” Paluck said.

Last year, the award went to Suzy Goodbin, a parent who helped kids in the lineup ring all day long and helped those who lacked confidence. This year, the show is adding a junior award as well, to honour both the adult and kid who go out of their way to help others out.

The show starts Sept. 14 evening with dressage classes, and show jumping and English performance on Saturday, before doing halter and western reigning competitions on Sunday.
