The Morgan Horse Show Club of Southern California hosted an Open Horse Show at the popular equestrian center, which drew competitors from throughout southern California.

And Tracy and her 11-year-old daughter, Madison, were two of the riders who performed well in the event. And mom and daughter shared Stormy, whose birth name is, “JJ SK’s Spring Storm” in several of the 42 events.
