Long established and considered by many as one of their "favorite show circuits," the Black Hills Summer Circuit Quarter Horse Show once again drew approximately 2,400 entries. July 10-13 at the Central States Fairgrounds in Rapid City, S.D., the show used a split combined format and drew contestants from Florida, New York, California, Texas and all points in between.

Three judges the first two days and two judges on the last two days allowed the contestants AQHA points in five shows while only showing their horses twice in their respective classes. Judging the 2014 BHSC were Jennifer Thompson, Reno, Nev.; Russ Smith, Whitesboro, Texas; Delena Doyle, Azle, Texas; Kelly Smith, Madison, Miss.; and Jeff Buck from McCordsville, Ind.

Capturing six Circuit Championships in 2014 was My Bar Passer owned by Scott Reinartz, Fort Lauderdale, Fla.. Reinartz, the 2014 BHSC Amateur High Point, earned four Circuit Championships competing in that division – Performance Geldings, Trail, Western Pleasure and Western Horsemanship. He also won the Circuit in Open Performance Geldings and the Senior Trail with his trainer Miya Childers from Elizabeth, Colo.

Owned by Kendra Whitney from Anaheim, Calif., Poison Rain left the BHSC with three Circuit and three Reserve Championships. Shown by her trainer, Leslie Vagneur Lange, Greeley, Colo., they won the Circuit in Green Western Pleasure, Green Western Riding and Junior Trail. Lange also won the Reserve Circuit Championship in Junior Western Pleasure with Whitney being named the 2014 BHSC Reserve Circuit Champions in both the Novice Amateur Western Pleasure and Amateur Western Pleasure.
