REEDSVILLE -

The Mountaineer Horse Club wrapped up its weekend long show at the Reedsville Farm.

This was the club's second show this year, which is open to any breed of horse and any rider.

Show Manager Nicole Robosson was excited to be able to give the community a chance to come out and experience what a horse show is like.

"I've been showing for 26 years, and it's nice to kind of be able to put on shows now, and give everybody the experience I did when I was little," said Robosson.

Riders don't have to be a part of the club to enter in the shows. Anyone is welcome to register and enter their horse.

Those who are members of the club are eligible for weekend high points and year end high point awards.

Saturday featured over the fence classes for jumping and the English classes. Sunday's competition included showmanship and trail and western classes.

This is only the second year the club has been in existence. Last year they did seven shows in total. This year there will only be three.

The purpose in these shows is to create a fun atmosphere where riders can come out and show off their horses.

"The reason we did this show is so we have a fun atmosphere, and give people in the tri-state area a place to come and have fun and I think we've accomplished that," Robosson said.

More than 200 riders came out from Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia. The next show will be on August 9th, and all proceeds go to the Mountaineer Horse Club.
