Sue Mulford is a two-time colon cancer survivor, and she was hospitalized for a blockage in her small intestine in late September.
This week has been an emotional one for the Mulford Family of Georgetown, Ohio. Sue Mulford was planning on showing her gelding, Stay Shining at the Congress in the Amateur Pleasure Driving. Unfortunately, life doesn't always go as planned. Due to Sue being diagnosed again with her third bout of cancer, she was in the hospital instead of in a cart. Her husband, Denny, took her place and showed in the class earlier this week.

When I go to the Congress, the number one priority is shopping. Well, and showing great horses! When packing my trailer and suitcase for the Congress, I make sure that I don’t pack quite enough clothes to get me through the whole show. It's a great excuse to go shopping. With two large expo centers full of vendors, you are bound to find many things that you can’t live without.

Multiple World and Congress Champion trainer and AQHA judge Stephanie Lynn sat down with GoHorseShow and discussed this year's 15-18 Youth Showmanship Congress pattern. We thought it would be beneficial to our readers to hear from an AQHA Judge, whose customers have had success in this class, how the patterns should be executed.
