Cassie Havill and students practice for the upcoming Horse Show at the Amador County Fair

Every summer, the Plymouth Fairgrounds in Amador County come alive as the Amador County Fair, with all its vibrant competitions and dazzling entertainment, kicks up dust on the last weekend in July.

The Horse Show is one competition that has been an essential part of the Amador County Fair for many years, and for those showing, it is an event that is anticipated all year long.

Cassie Havill, owner of Cassie Havill Horse Training, at Laughton Ranch, in Jackson, says that her students practice for the fair bi-weekly throughout the year. Cassie competes in many local and international shows including reining and reined cowhorse events. She also won the 18-and-under World Championship in Reno in 2007. This year at the fair, she will be showing in cutting and Western Riding, with students showing in reining, Western Riding, Western Pleasure, team penning and cattle events.

Cassie says she enjoys the Horse Show because, “It involves the whole horse community in Amador County. It’s low pressure and great fun.” Riders in this competition range from novice to professional, with both junior and adult exhibitors taking part. Nearly 100 contestants participate in the events.

Don’t miss this year’s Horse Show events occurring all four days of the fair, in the Benny Brown Arena.
