The WWHA Fall Finale, last show of the season, was held at Double Bar A in Oakfield, Wis., on Saturday, September 21, 2013. The honorable Dee Dee Sale made the trip from Lewisburg, Tenn., to judge the 36-class show bill offering both rail and versatility classes. Coordinated by Cheryl Beres, youth were invited to join Judge Sale in center ring to learn about judging and then participated in judging two classes. The youth took this wonderful opportunity seriously and did a great job. Thank you goes out to everyone who helped make this show a success and to our sponsors: Platinum level from Veritas Financial. Bronze level from: Hauser’s Hideaway, Hammen Storage, Hill Trucking, and Bob and Vick Kuenzi. View complete show results here.
