The 2011 theme, “Rockin’ the Country” was befitting to the long-standing image for the Central States Fair & Rodeo (CSF). Kicking off the 10-day event was the AQHA Quarter Horse Show Circuit held Aug. 19-21 at the Bray arena and Jim Kjerstad Indoor Arena on the Central States Fairgrounds.

Horsemen from several surrounding states enjoyed the great weather that then held for the entire week of the Central States Fair. The CSF Quarter Horse Show also shared their arenas with entries in Rapid City for the Center Of The Nation Quarter Horse Futurity and the Ranchers Quarter Horse Breeders Association Futurity. Classes were held concurrently over the last two days with three judges involved in the placings for those classes.

Judging the 2011 CSF circuit with close to 850 entries were Gay Lynn Owens, Creston, IA; Tom Crowley, Kellogg, MN; Gary Hersom, Jesup, IA; and Allen Walton from Whitesboro, TX.



Capturing six individual Circuit Championships was Laura Hughes from Longmont, CO and her bay gelding Custom Made Grand. They won championships in Amateur Performance Halter Geldings, Open Performance Halter Geldings, Novice Amateur Showmanship, Novice Amateur Hunter Under Saddle, Amateur Hunter Under Saddle and Novice Amateur Hunt Seat Equitation. They also competed in a majority of the western classes – memories of “show ’em in the morning and ride ’em all day!” are not necessarily a thing of past.
