Gananda student is Horse Show winner
- Updated: February 16, 2012
Cortney O’Connell, a junior at Gananda High School travelled in November to the Color Breed Congress Horse Show in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The show hosted almost 700 exhibitors, representing 31 states and three different countries for five days of competition between five different horse breeds. Cortney won her division of 14 to 18 years olds and also was the Overall High Point Youth Congress Champion.
Cortney and her Pinto horse Millinium Cowgirl (“Millie”) have been showing on the “A” rated circuit for four years and have been a very successful team. She keeps her horse at her family’s farm, Fox Hollow Farm, in Macedon, NY.
The Macedon resident works very hard every day at the barn doing chores, giving lessons and working horses. She thanks her parents Bob and Heidi O’Connell, brother Bobby and sister Lindsey for all their support; and is grateful to the trainers who have helped her along the way, especially Dan and Heather Calmes of Valleystead Farm in Walworth, NY.
