SUE HARTZ




The South Louisiana Saddle Club's 1998 "Whinny Award" winner.



Sue has owned many horses and mules over the years but she is best known at the shows for her rides on Sweet Lady Val. She had been a member and Officer of the South Louisiana Horse Show Association for many years and is a Charter Member and Officer in the South Louisiana Saddle Club. She has won the Overall Judged Events Championship on Val and has won Western Riding numerous times plus wins in many other events over the years in the shows and Team Pennings. Most recently, she won the 2005 SLSC Senior Championship Saddle on Val. She has also ridden in many Mardi Gras parades and enjoyed many trail rides. One of her greatest enjoyments is teaching kids to ride and watching them enjoy themselves at the shows on one of her horses. In 1999 two different youths won overall Reserve Championships on her horses. She likes to see the kids win but more important to her is to see them enjoying themselves and practicing good sportsmanship.
