With cutting, working cow horse, boxing, roping, ranch riding, western riding, western pleasure, horsemanship and trail classes, Thursday, June 25, was certainly a full day at the 2015 Oregon Summer Classic.

“Summer Classic’s focus has always been ‘family friendly’ by having various social events scheduled during the week," says Keri Croft, Oregon Quarter Horse Association executive secretary. From the Taste of the Rogue Valley reception Wednesday night to the barbecue on Thursday, the family friendly atmosphere is evident.

Without a doubt, one of the much-anticipated highlights of Summer Classic is always the Youth Champion of Champions and Trainer Showmanship classes, which were also Thursday night. (View photos from the Champion of Champions and Trainer Showmanship.)
