Welcome to Sabrina Paranzino our new associate at Glenn Wells Quarter Horses. Sabrina comes to us from Haddam, Connecticut where she was a riding instructor. She will be taking over Ashley's day-to-day duties at the barn. Ashley will still be with us at shows and helping out at the barn when everyone else is on the road. Welcome to Georgia, Sabrina. Did you bring that snow with you?
Congratulations Pam Hunter. AQHA reports that Zippin Good N Hot just missed the top 20 in Green Western Pleasure despite being off 3 months at the peak of the show season with 32 Green W/P points. Final Tally --47 Open points; 52 Amateur/NA points; Top 10 (7th place) at the East Novice Championship Show in October. What a great year for Pam and Cooper!
Congratulations go to Jeri Spence on her purchase of Peytonsravishingrose. Rosie is no stranger to the show pen with over 70 Novice Amateur Western Pleasure points and two third place finishes at 2012 & 2013's East Novice Championship Shows.
Glenn Wells Quarter Horses' team had a GREAT PHBA Show in Montgomery! Jeri Spence's Hambone won color halter (under all four judges, I believe). Ora Sue Nagy's Hot Shot was a western pleasure machine. She won the Amateur and Select Western Pleasure under at least three judges, might have been all four and Glenn won Senior Pleasure both days. Jeri won four seconds in Amateur and Select Pleasure also! Both Jeri and Ora Sue had horsemanship wins. Way to go folks! I can't list all their individual wins over both days! They did great! Jeri's Hambone ended up Color Champion, Jeri and Gracie were Amateur All-Around Champs and Reserve Select Champs and Ora Sue and Hot Shot won the Select Amateur All-Around Award. Go team!
Congratulations to our winners at the Novice Championships. Zippin Good N Hot and Pam Hunter placed seventh in Novice Amateur Western Pleasure. What a Good Story and Donna Kerr placed tenth in Novice Trail and made semi-finals in Horsemanship. Thank My Daddy and Tori Ferreira were finalists in Youth Showmanship. Impressions of An Amigo and Jan Fulton were finalist in Amateur Trail. Avery Lario and Indias Fine Asset along with Mitzi May and Knights Rockin Star had some really good goes.

Well the Big A is behind us now. But what a GREAT show it was for everyone. Especially our new team members. Linda Parker with Cosmic Heart probably had the best show. Heart was reserve high point Select English Horse for the Stars and Stripes portion of the show. They placed in the top five in most of their under saddle and showmanship classes. Mitzi May and Knight's Rockin Star WON their Novice Hunter Under Saddle class. This was their first time showing at the Big A. They placed very well in most of their classes in HUS and Eq. "McGraw" also did well in Green HUS with Sheala on board. Jeri Spence and Zipsa Gold Star really did well in Novice and Select Showmanship at their first Big A. They had some very nice runs and have the placings to show. What a fun team to watch. Jeri's gelding, Skips Tama Leaguer, had some really pretty trail runs too with Sheala riding. Carolyn Dodd and Cranes Big Chip did themselves very proud in Select Showmanship and Horsemanship. This was Carolyn's premier show with Choco. Indias Fine Asset with Callie Lario aboard for Small Fry Horsemanship and Trail placed in every class with their best ride earning them a third. Whoo! Hoo! Avery Lario also did very well in Horsemanship, Trail and Showmanship taking top fives in classes of over thirty entries. They have a lot to be proud about. Stephanie Mitchell and More Than Outrageous were really looking good in Amateur Showmanship, HUS and Eq. They had some excellent placings in some really big classes. Tori Ferreira and Thank My Daddy did extremely well in some huge showmanship classes. What an amazing pair these two are. Donna Shirey and Peace Out Man had an amazing show with class wins in Select Hunter Under Saddle, then topped it off by winning the NSBA $1000 3/4 YO Open Hunter Under Saddle Derby with Scot A Jones on board. Wow, what a great show for everyone! Congratulations to ALL!
Congratulations to Kelley Simonsen on placing fourth at the AQHA Select World in Equitation on "A Beautiful Moxie!!" (pictured left with Sheala, Glenn and then breeders/owners, Jan & Norm Mackenzie). Beauty was shown by Sheala when she was a member of our team... In fact, she is the mare Sheala rode to the 2011 AQHA High Point Limited Open Hunter Under Saddle Rider in the nation title. What a great show mare she has become. Another top five world placer Glenn Wells Quarter Horses has trained!!
Congratulations to the Lario family on the purchase of AQHA Youth Performance Champion, Blue Walkers Terms. "Buster" has been to a show or two in his time, he only has over 1450 AQHA points. Some of his accomplishments - Reserve Congress Champion in Youth Western Riding, Top Five Congress finish in Youth Showmanship, Top Five AQHA Youth World Show in Showmanship (numerous World Top Tens), Youth Superiors in Showmanship, Western Riding (also has Open Superior), Horsemanship, and Trail (also has Open Superior). To top it off, "Buster" has numerous youth high point titles. Besides all that, he is a big, beautiful sweetie! Wow, whoo hoo Avery. We can't wait to see what you and "Buster" can do together!
We had to say goodbye to one of our best friends, "Thank My Daddy", who has gone to his new home in Alabama with Carolyn Bowen. He and Tori have been among our greatest assets for the last two years. We are sure his new owner will love and appreciate him as much as we do. Thank you Casey Caldwell for letting him be part of our lives. We will miss you Jake!
The crew is headed to Harriman, Tennessee. Good Luck All!
Everyone and I mean everyone had a great Stock Show. Has anyone mentioned what a great show it was. Thank you Horseman's Quarter Horse Assoc. for such a nice event.
Callie Lario aboard India Fine Asset was Circuit Champion in Small-Fry Trail. Avery Lario was Circuit Champion in 13 & Under Horsemanship aboard Uno too, both had several class wins. Callie won a fourth in her loping class on Sunday! Jeri Spence and Peytonsravishingrose were Circuit Champions in Novice Amateur Western Pleasure. Jeri won her class ( along with two seconds and a fifth) and this is only her second time showing Rosie. Way to go! Glenn also won Green Trail (OUT OF 21 HORSES) on Rosie and placed top four under other three judges. We might also add Glenn and Rosie were top five under all judges in Green Western Pleasure. Jeri's other horse, Skips Tama Leaguer won Open Ranch Horse Pleasure with Sheala riding. What a fun class! He was also top three under other three judges. He's really coming around nice in Trail also. Cranes Big Chip, proudly owned by Carolyn Dodd, was top six out of that 30 head of horses in Green Trail with Sheala, he also had a great go in Senior HUS with Sheala. Then with Carolyn, they were top five in Novice Amateur Showmanship and top three in Trail. Whoo Hoo! Sheala won the Green HUS aboard Zippin Good N Hot then was Reserve in Junior Western Pleasure on Sunday. His proud owner, Pam rode him to wins and reserve finishes in Select Pleasure and top four in Amateur Horsemanship! He is really coming along in trail too. Spark of Impulse and Glenn were reserve champs in Senior Western Pleasure in a very deep class and top three under other judges. They were also top six in Senior Trail (OUT OF 30 HORSES). Then Hot Shot proudly carried Ora Sue to the top four in Select Western Pleasure. They have a lot to be proud of! In just his third show, Im All Ablaze with Sheala in the saddle were reserve just about across the board in Junior Hunter Under Saddle. Awesome was awesome! Can't wait to see DeAnne out there showing him. Last but not least, What A Good Story won Open Western Riding and Circuit Champion with Glenn. She and Glenn were top five in that huge Senior Trail class too. Then proud owner Donna Kerr led her to a win and reserve in Novice and Select Amateur Showmanship, top six in Select Trail, and top five in Novice Amateur Horsemanship. Then Gracie tops it off by being top three in Senior Western Pleasure with Sheala aboard. Really, really good show for everyone! I know there were a lot more placings but I just have no more room. Keep up the good work!
We have a new team member, another Lario will be added to the show roster soon. "Mom Carla" is the proud owner of super, super sweet and very talented Katallac Invitation. Carla will soon be out there in Novice Western Pleasure and Sheala riding in Green Pleasure on this gorgeous mare. Congratulations Lario family!

Big Congratulations to Tori Ferreira and Thank My Daddy (Jake) who were 13th in 12-14 Youth Showmanship at Congress. Did you see how many horses were in that class? What a great job they did!
Avery and Buster do it again! They placed 4th in Novice Youth Trail 13 & Under at Congress! Wow way to go! Has anyone mentioned this is Avery's second show with Buster. Just imagine what a great career these two are going to have! Below is Avery accepting her award.
We also want to congratulate The Best Bet Yet for his Top Five Finish at Congress today, he was 4th over all in Junior Trail with Mike Hawkins aboard. Nancy Chapman purchased Champ from us a while back. Champ was bred and raised by Jan and Norm Mackenzie, started and finished by Glenn and Sheala, and loved by us all. We are glad he has found such a wonderful home and is doing so well for Nancy.
Whoo, hoo! Congratulations to Avery Lario for her Top Ten Finish (9th) at Congress in Nov. Youth 13 & Under Western Riding on Blue Walkers Terms (Buster). We are so proud of you. Cooper (Zippin Good N Hot) looked really good in Green Western Pleasure today with Sheala aboard! Boy, what a tough class.
