The Nevada County Fairgrounds welcomed horse enthusiasts this past weekend as exhibitors competed in the 2011 Mother Lode Horse Show. This annual three-day event gives spectators an opportunity to observe participants work with their horses as they compete in Driving, English, Halter and Western Shows. At the conclusion of each class, competitors are awarded their placing, which is a demonstration of achievement in horsemanship.  The results of the Mother Lode Horse Show are listed below.

The Mother Lode Horse Show is the official horse show of the Nevada County Fair. This year’s Nevada County Fair starts Wednesday, August 10 and runs through Sunday, August 14. For more information about the Fair, visit www.NevadaCountyFair.com.
