Woodside, CA - June 25, 2009 - Reining By The Bay is pleased announce that $2 million Elite Rider Tim McQuay will be a judge at this year's competition, being held July 21-26, at the Woodside Horsepark. McQuay is one of the nation's top riders and one of only two riders to reach the $2 million Elite Rider status. Reining By The Bay features over $150,000 in total added money and prizes and is an FEI qualifying event.
"Reining By The Bay is a beautiful horse show," commented McQuay. "You can stand at the ring and look off to your right and see the bay. The people at the show are so cordial; they want it to be a really nice horse show. When you have a friendly horse show staff it really makes a horse show that much better."
McQuay is an expert reiner who has won every major National Reining Horse Association event. Two years ago he had the opportunity to ride a horse for Randy Paul at Reining By the Bay. "The show has a nice big pen and it's real easy to get ready. You can really showcase your horse nicely there," noted McQuay.
Reining is the only western event recognized by the FEI World Equestrian Games and McQuay has had two opportunities to represent the United States. During the 2006 Games in Aachen, Germany, he helped the United States earn the team gold medal and won the individual silver medal with Mister Nicadual, owned by Jerry Kimmel. McQuay has said that he would happily represent the United States during the 2010 Games in Lexington, Kentucky if he qualifies, and he has two horses that he is currently aiming towards that goal, Smart And Shiney and Hollywoodstinseltown.
McQuay will bring a great deal of experience and expertise to the judging stand at this year's Reining By The Bay competition. "I like to see a horse with an athletic look about them," explained McQuay. "I like a pretty horse; it doesn't have to be drop dead gorgeous, but it should have an athletic look when it walks in the pen. I also like to see a horse with a lot of stop and turn around. That's something I'm always looking for."
"The judges at Reining By The Bay are very solid," he continued. "They judge what they see, and they don't try to make anybody better than they are. Amanda Brumley does an excellent job finding quality judges."
Reining By The Bay is a world-class event, featuring a $70,000 Added Derby and $10,000 Added 3 Year Old Futurity. The proceeds of this event benefit the Peninsula Humane Society. Sponsorship opportunities are still available. For information or to make a donation please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
