After much consideration and great regret, the West Virginia Quarter Horse Association has cancelled its June 30 - July 3 show at the Winfield Riding Club.

"There is no way we can get the grounds in shape to show and are afraid health risks may be involved," the group announced June 25 on Facebook. "We are looking into the possibility of a make up show and will be working with AQHA to do so. Please understand and keep all of West Virginia in your thoughts and prayers."

In what's considered the state's worst flood in more than a century, West Virginia‘s three most devastated counties – Kanawha, Greenbrier and Nicholas – and possibly others will receive federal assistance, officials said on Saturday. Winfield – the site of the cancelled WVQHA show – is located in Putnam County, West Virginia.
