Horse drill team takes second at Wisconsin State Fair

The Door County Rockers horse drill team that you may have caught at the Door County Fair last weekend took it up a notch Thursday at the Wisconsin State Fair. The team consisting of Libby Ash, Abby Banks, Georgia Englebert, Claire Gerdmann, Faith Gerdmann, Karoline Jordan, Eileen Laughlin, Callie Miller, Natalie Patza, and Lexi Tassoul took second place in the Champions Challenge, finishing just one point behind champion La Crosse County. The competition features the 10 girls and their horses complete timed-speed events involving a number of obstacles and patterns. Door County Rockers coach Faye Bley is happy that after 20 years of coaching that the program is finally getting the notoriety it deserves.

Bley says the girls improved so much from the Stock Horse of Wisconsin Drill Team show they hosted at the Door County Fair where they took third place. Other exhibitors from Door and Kewaunee counties will be cycling in and out of Wisconsin State Fairgrounds over the next week during the fair which runs through August 15th in West Allis.
