- November 9, 2008 - The
last day of competition offered beautiful weather and a picturesque background
for the competitors at the sold out Dallas Harvest Horse Show. The show was
held at the prestigious Texas Rose
In the grand prix ring today, a Sunday Grand Prix Brunch
kicked off the $25,000 Harvest Grand Prix. Today's Grand Prix was sponsored by
October Hill Farm and the Davis Family.
Before the grand prix got underway, several special events
were held in the competition arena. Habitat for Horses introduced many

sportsmanship throughout the five days of competition. The recipient was chosen
based on votes from horse show officials and staff.
For the second year in a row, the winner of the $25,000
Harvest Grand Prix was Tracy Fenney and horse MTM Timon. This is Fenney's
seventh grand prix win at the Dallas Harvest Horse Show. She was also riding in

Fenney has been a frequent visitor to the winners circle for
this particular grand prix. For her, winning in front of a home crowd has
special meaning to her. Fenney said that it is special to have a nice horse

Harvest Horse Show.
"My mom is here and so is my brother, so it is really nice.
It is fun, and it is a great horse show. They have done a nice job and kept it
a kind of specialty horse show that is very prestigious," said Fenney. "They
add nice classes like this and they do special things. They have things like
the hospitality cart and breakfast, they have dinner every night, and they had
the Calcutta last night. That makes
everyone get in to the horse show, its fun."
