Bits & Pieces and two reserves. Marilyn MacLeod’s Banner’s Dixie Belle came home with two first place ties. Jose’s Smoke Screen walked to one win and two reserves for owner Martha Child. And, Jose’s One Liner, owned by D.A. McGovern, collected one first and three seconds. 2019 was Kitty Keen’s second show season complet- ing under the dressage instruction of Scot MacGregor. After competing in the dressage classes, particularly Western Dressage, at the TWHBEA World Show and the WHOA International, Scot really encouraged Kitty to consider going to Guthrie. Kitty and Dolly Dumas had never travelled that distance nor been that far away from home for a horse show. Kitty states, “It was going to be a big adventure for all of us, including my husband, Scott”. Scott served as truck and trailer driver, groomer, stall cleaner, video taker, and all around major support. Overall, Kitty and Dolly did very well. They received reserve championships in all their Basic tests and the Gaited Hack class. They also competed in a First Level Gaited Open class and were very pleased with the outcome. Kitty is aready making plans to go back to Guthrie in 2020.   One of the hardest working amateurs in the walking horse world and one of the most esteemed is Tammy Steinbrecher. This is the story of a humble gal and her talented but cast aside horse, The Wicked Wolf. This team took  the WDAA championship show by storm. They won six out of eight classes entered and claimed two reserves. By the end of the show they were crowned Overall Open Gaited Lower Level Test Division World Grand Champion. Tammy has worked the Wicked Wolf by herself and has turned the heads of the entire dressage horse world as her horse walks and shakes his way into the blue ribbons. This talented gelding is by Jana Anderson’s DVM’s  late Wicked Gold and out of her  good Sundrop mare. He was born  on the Anderson farm and has won a number of blues as a rail horse before switching disciplines and learning dressage. Longtime TWH versatility competitor Jessica Mar- lewski hauled two horses to Guthrie, Sarge’s Choicey Boy and Rowdy Spirit. Both did very well and the show. Sarge’s Choicey Boy and Jessica claimed two wins and one reserve while Rowday Spirit and Jessica brought home one first and two seconds. All in all the Tennessee Walking Horse was well represented at this years WDAA World Championship Show. Huge thanks and congratulations to everyone that participated! –Sis Osborne 7
