Gilliam QH would like to thank Western PA Quarter Horse Association for a terrific 2016 show season. Dance On These Irons was a clear 1ST PLACE OVERALL winner in the two divisions shown. Congratulations, Casi Gilliam in Jr. Hunter Under Saddle, and Texas A&M Equestrian, Katie Conklin in the Amateur Hunter Under Saddle.
We are pleased to congratulate Katie Conklin and Dance On These Irons on their Top Ten placing at the 2016 AQHA Amateur World Championship Show. The pair was fifth and 12th for an 11th place overall. Great job, Katie!
Gilliam Quarter Horses is pleased to offer Dance On These Irons for sale or longterm lease at Legacy Equestrian Center in Chesterland, Ohio. He will be shown at the AQHA World Championship Show in Oklahoma City in November, then will be available to learn a new job with you! Take advantage of this opportunity to have a show partner of a lifetime with this exquisite animal.
Casi Gilliam has partnered with Legacy Equestrian Center to offer highly sought-after training stalls in the main Show Barn. Training will be offered in Western Dressage, Hunter Under Saddle and Equitation to all breeds and all levels of riding experience. Monthly clinics will also be held at the facility. Contact Us for more information on this exciting opportunity!
Gilliam Quarter Horses would like to congratulate Katie Conklin on her AQHA Amateur World Show qualification! In just a few weeks of showing, this AQHA Rookie accomplished what takes some people years. She and Dance On These Irons have bonded and become an Amateur show team to recon with in such a short period of time. We are very proud of both Katie and Mike. Great job!
We are at home in Ohio and trying to stay warm! Stop by and visit us at our new amazing facility in Chesterland, Ohio. If you think Dance On These Irons might be your dreamhorse, now is also your opportunity to take him for a spin before show season begins! He will remain in Northeast Ohio for the 2016 show season.
Gilliam Quarter Horses welcomes Texas A & M Equestrian, Katie Conklin to our team! Watch for this talented rider in a show pen soon!
Casi has been concentrating on raising her six year-old twins and 16 year-old son and has been showing a little less this year, as everyone knows family must come first! The big guy on the road this year has been DANCE ON THESE IRONS, a four year-old, 17.3 hand brown gelding by These Irons Are Hot. By Casi's choice, "Mike" remained in the same training program he has been in all his life, with Trish Yamber in Roberta, GA. In the few southern shows Casi flew to and showed Mike in, the pair qualified for the 2015 AQHA Open World, and will be presented in the Level 2 Jr. Hunter Under Saddle on November 10th.
Congress is a wrap, and the Junior and Maturity rides went very well. Bring on Oklahoma City!
Gilliam Quarter Horses welcomes 2011 #1 Green HUS Mare in the Nation, TooSleepyToCertify ("Abby") back into show training. This exceptional mare by Too Sleepy To Zip and out of MySistersCertifiable will be offered for your consideration, once she is back into show condition. Abby was also 2012 Region Four Open Performance Halter Mare Champion and produced 2014 CONGRESS CHAMPION, The Art of Sleep.
UPDATE: Abby has been retired as a show horse and is now fully enjoying life as a mamma. Good girl, Abigale.
Spring is finally here, and the show season is rolling! We have a few open training slots, so it is not too late to join us on the road this year. Please visit our TRAINING PAGE to view our show schedule for the year!
Past Update Entries
Welcome back to the show pen, One Fine Detail, and Tara Lawless. Glad you're doing better, "House"! The pair made the finals out of 30 elite Ohio horses. They placed in the top seven in their Youth 14-18 HUS class at the EOQHA Futurity in Columbus, Ohio, after House was injured and off for over a year. He and I also made the finals in the Green HUS and also placed top 7 out of 25. Watch for us with One Fine Detail at the upcoming shows!
