NSBA Heroes on Horses 2011 Recap in Pictures

Saturday, August 20 at the 2011 NSBA World Championship Show was the big debut of the Heroes on Horses event – western pleasure classes for veterans and active-duty wounded soldiers. Five competitors participated in the inaugural event, and many spectators showed up to watch.

Courtney Ryan was on hand to cheer on the veterans and grabbed a few fun pictures for us to share with you.
