Frontier Belles Celebrates 25th Anniversary Open Horse Show
KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- The first "open horse show" at the Mesa County Fairgrounds celebrated their 25th anniversary on Sunday.
Frontier Belles have been hosting this horse show since 1988.
The two day show attracts nearly 200 entries of all ages, and consists of 110 classes.
Saturday was for Hunter/Jumper and English equestrian classes, and Sunday was for the Western classes.
“I do it because I love it,” said Katelyn Hansen, participant. “It’s a lot of fun. Its calming but it means the world to me.”
“One of the things we do is go out to the community for sponsors,” said Connie Klauzer, show manager. “So we give a lot of nice prizes. Plus, we give a lot of nice ribbons and many people say they come to our show whether they go to any other show or not, because we have a lot of fun here.”
Frontier Belles are a precision drill team, and have been around since 1958.
Each participant had to pay a fee to enter since this event is their only money maker of the year, but the community was welcomed free of charge.
