St. Andrews rider makes top 10 in three classes at World Championship Show
Oklahoma City, Okla. - Kelsey Moody, a St. Andrews Presbyterian College senior from Woodstock, Ga., earned three top 10 finishes at the American Quarter Horse Association World Championship Show in Oklahoma City.
Moody, riding her American Quarter Horse Double T Blue Chip, earned 2nd in Amateur Hunt Seat Equitation, 7th in Amateur Trail and 10th in Amateur Western Horsemanship.
To earn these placements, Moody had to be in the top 14 after the first round of competition to make it to the finals.
The World Show is the world’s largest, single-breed world championship horse show. This is the pinnacle event for competitors around the world, who must qualify for the event by earning a predetermined number of points to secure a spot in each of the 94 classes representing English, western and halter disciplines. More that 3,320 entries from the United States and 12 other countries competed for more than $2.6 million in prizes and awards.
Although this was Moody’s first trip to the AQHA Amateur World Show she has been in the top ten at the Youth World Show in 2006 and 2007. She currently competes as a member of the St. Andrews Western Team and has earned high point rider at three of the four fall competitions for the team.
