TAMPA, Fla. — A Pennsylvania quarter horse owner ended 2018 on a high note at the Florida Gold Coast Quarter Horse Circuit.

In the Amateur Performance Halter Mares division, Shes Showin Off, owned by Delbert Hostetler of Slatington, Pa., was named circuit champion. The 5-year-old sorrel mare also led the national standings.

"It's a personal goal to do well here,” he said at the show, “We're chasing the national high-point title for the first time so coming here was important because we're leading now and we're hoping to secure the title at this show. The weather is great too. We have a farm in Pennsylvania, Blue Mountain Quarter Horses, and it's not so nice up there right now. We're just tickled to death to enjoy the warm weather here."

"She's a nice mare. I love her to death. I wouldn't sell her for every horse here. I owned her mother and her father, but the stud died, so she's the last one from him. I would like to do as much as I can with her. I have raised everything I have shown in the last five years, so to win the national title would be the realization of my goal. It would be really special."
