Congress Super Sale Rod's Trophy Saddle Award
December 14th, 2020Tweet
The Congress Super Sale held with the All American Quarter Horse Congress by the Ohio Quarter Horse Association proudly presents the Rod's Congress Super Sale Trophy Saddle.
Rod's Western Palace sponsors and donates a trophy saddle every year, traditionally presented at the Congress Super Sale. The saddle is awarded to the horse's current owner, which sold in the previous year's Congress Super Sale, which accumulated the highest total number of AQHA points from sale date through August 31.
The Ohio Quarter Horse Association thanks Scott Hartle of Rod's Western Palace for the continued support in donating the Congress Super Sale Trophy Saddle.
The winner of the Rod's Trophy Saddle for 2020 is SST Nite Lite Fever, purchased by Debbie Luke of Kittanning, Pennsylvania, by earning points in AQHA Walk-Trot Western Horsemanship.
SST Nite Lite Fever was consigned to the 2019 Congress Super Sale by Tom Moore of Onsted, Michigan.
"Debbie was very excited to hear that she won the Rod's Trophy Saddle," says Stephanie Jennings of Professional Horse Services, LLC, the sale management firm.
"We are only going to look," stated Debbie Luke. Famous last words at the Congress Super Sale, right? She knew she had to have him as soon as she saw the sweet sorrel gelding. With her husband Denny leading the way with the bidding, the group let out a cheer as the hammer came down with the Luke's holding the winning bid. Debbie and SST Nite Lite Fever were about to begin their journey together.
"Jeffy" is a 2016 gelding by Nite Moves and out of the legendary Weretalkinradical. He is a barn favorite and has affectionately been named the "greeter" of the Bison Performance Horses barn. 2020 came with many uncertainties, including the viability of a show season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. "We didn't have many shows to get him out to. We were asking a lot of a green horse that had never been shown before. We needed him to step up and do his job, and he did just that. We couldn't have asked for anything else from him," says trainer Hayley Ayers. Winning this title and the saddle is a great honor for everyone involved in Jeffy's career. The future and possibilities with this talented boy are endless."
