Her mother, Jennifer, will be donating one of her kidneys for Allie's transplant.

Dempze says she doesn't like to lose, especially during football season on Saturday and Sundays which sometimes include yelling at her tv and pillow throwing.

Our industry is full of many types of people with diverse backgrounds who all share one thing, a love of horses. But there is so much more than meets the eye to many of these people. We asked multiple futurity western pleasure champion, Jenna Dempze from Wisconsin to list the Top 10 things she loves and hates. Jenna and her horse, Rewind and Repeat, are just off an amazing Congress with wins in the Junior and Amateur Western Pleasure.

Photographer Laurie Haughton of Epona Portraits captured many dogs at the Congress in the barns, the exhibit halls, warm up areas, and show pens. We also added a few photos that we came across that we couldn't resist adding to the slideshow. Without a doubt, the common bond we all share in this industry is the love of horses. But, in addition to horses, dogs are usually part of a horse show family, and many exhibitors and trainers bring their faithful companions to the shows.

"I'm just extremely thankful that I am able to do what I love because it could have been taken away from me in an instant, and I'm really glad to be back in the saddle," Brad says. Photo © Rebekah Kazakevicius
UPDATE: We would like to congratulate owner Bonnie Sheren on her horse, Chex Me Im Cute on winning a tough Senior Trail! Brad wasn't even sure he would be able to show in the class. Way to go Brad! He beat out 160 other exhibitors. Check out the feature we wrote earlier this week below about him being able to show at the Congress despite his recent ATV accident.

"I tried to stay mentally focused on each class and not think about the All-Around title, but going in that was my goal and it does feel amazing to walk away having accomplished that," Affeldt told GoHorseShow.
Last year, GoHorseShow featured Novice Amateur Larisa Affeldt, wife of two-time World Series Champion pitcher for the San Francisco Giants, Jeremy Affeldt. After this past week at the Novice West Championship Show in Las Vegas, Larisa's trophy count is quickly catching up with her husband who was busy pitching for the Giants in the Playoffs while Larisa was in Las Vegas.

"Traveling with my daughters to shows and spending time with them has been a blessing--it has kept me from letting my illnesses completely consume me," Celeste says pictured here between her daughters. Photo © GoHorseShow
The Turner Family of Zebulon, North Carolina are veterans of the horse show world and have been successful on the national level for many years. Lately, the Turner family has had a tough go of it with the passing of two close family members and dealing with major illness even closer to home. But through it all, showing horses has been able to keep them together as a family.
