Virga Wins Big at Horse Show

Virga 6-2009 show 064

Virga was a cute filly when she came to the LOPE Ranch as a three year old. When Terron adopted her to be a pleasure riding mount, we had no idea just how much Virga would excel at showing. Terron reports:

“I just wanted to give you an update on VIRGA. She and I went to a show on June 27 & 28, 2009. Over the two day period she was entered in five classes, both under saddle and halter classes, and we took home FIVE BLUE RIBBONS! Then to add icing to the cake-she took home the overall Halter Championship against geldings, stallions, fillies and mares. I am so proud of her! I hope that more people will give these amazing Thoroughbreds a chance, because if you do they will give you their all. You guys do an awesome job, keep up the good work.”

Thank you, Terron, for giving Virga such a wonderful new career in the show ring!
