Photo of the Week
Jennifer Horner and her American Saddlebred Show horse, Designer Quality, are a very competitive team. Designer Quality just became a champion and is now officially named CH Designer Quality. The American Saddlebred Horse Association awards a permanent “CH” (Champion) prefix to a horse's name to honor outstanding performers in the show ring, to identify successful breeding combinations and to keep a history of the breed. Earning a CH is very difficult to do and is an amazing accomplishment for Jennifer and her horse. Jennifer rides and shows with Krussell Stables in Richmond. Congratulations, Jennifer! If you have a picture of Spring Grove you would like to share, email it here .
