PASCO, Wash. -Equestrians from throughout the Pacific Northwest have trailered their horses to the Tri-Cities this weekend to compete for a shot at a world class competition.
The Mid Columbia Quarter Horse Association Desert Classic starts Friday at TRAC. Manager of the show, Jeff Bellingham, says professional judges will award points that could take riders to the world competition in Oklahoma City. Bellingham says the show is also a good chance for anyone interested in saddling up their own horse to get their questions answered by professionals.
"They'll see a wide range of equestrian events," he says. "They'll see professional horsemen here with their clients. They'll see kids in their youth classes. They'll see select class, which is 50 and over."
The show runs through Sunday and there's no charge to get in.
