"He is such a great mover and sweet horse," Cee Money's owner, Dan Yeager told GoHorseShow following their first Congress Championship together.
Always a bridesmaid and never the bride...Dan
Yeager and Cee Money can no longer say that. With
a first, a
second and two thirds, Yeager and
Money cemented their first Congress win
Thursday in the Select Amateur Showmanship. Money
had already won four Reserve Congress
Championships, three earlier in the week and one
in 2013, but they
finally broke the reserve
streak for their first Congress Championship

"The moment we went through the tunnel we didn't just show up; we were here to show," Delaney states.
You would've never guessed after watching 13
year-old Delaney Dickens of Omaha, Nebraska at
Congress that she just started riding less than a
year ago and showing six months ago. The talented
young rider made the finals of the Novice 13 &
Under Horsemanship with her veteran mount, Ima
Struttin Solo (Joe/Joey). The new team was 16th
out of 80 of the best horses in the country. Even
at 20 years-old, no tail, and blind in one eye,
Joey still has the heart of a champion.
If you haven't made it to Congress this year, I hope that my daily reports have kept you up-to-date with the exciting things happening here in Columbus, Ohio.

changes year to
