Black Hills Summer Circuit Quarter Horse Show

Larry Larson

Continuing a tradition spanning over 25 years, the Black Hills Summer Circuit (BHSC) Quarter Horse Show drew contestants once again to one of most popular American Quarter Horse events in the upper Midwest. Starting on Monday July 4, the circuit concluded on July 9 and was presented at Bray Arena on the Central States Fairgrounds in Rapid City, SD.

Entry numbers exceeded 1,400 at the circuit offering a single AQHA judged show the first two days followed by two split-combined shows. Five judges placed the full slate of classes: Charlene Carter, Goodlettsville, TN; John and Betsy Tuckey, Liberty, KY; Daren Wright, Chillicothe, OH; and Laura Gilmer from Franklin, TN.

With a deadline of July 31 to attain qualifying points for the AQHA World Show in November, class numbers held steady throughout the week in the open, amateur and youth divisions. Classes with consistent two-point numbers included Senior Trail, Youth Western Pleasure, Amateur Western Pleasure and Amateur Reining. Junior and Senior Reining both drew consistent class sizes in the 4-point range throughout the circuit.

The annual exhibitor’s party was held Wednesday evening on the lawn area west of the arena after the completion of the day’s classes. Once again, a highlight was the South Dakota Quarter Horse Youth Association (SDQHYA) fundraising event – the dog races. It was preceded by a catered meal provided by the BHSC show committee.

Circuit Championships were awarded in each of the classes with two exhibitors with similar names – Hanah and Hannah and both from Nebraska – capturing a majority of the Circuit Awards. Hannah Loseke from Kearney captured six individual awards on Pleasure To Burn in the Open and Youth divisions while Hanah Cunningham from Bridgeport earned four in the Amateur and Novice Amateur with Prairie Valentine.
