The Penn State Department of Animal Science's home-raised stallion PSU Dynamic Krymsun had a very successful showing at this year's All American Quarter Horse Congress in Ohio in October. He had two top ten finishes out of the four events in which he showed. The stallion is in training with Randy Mitchell of Randy Mitchell Quarter Horses, Freeport, PA.

In Performance Halter Stallions he placed fifth in the limited division and sixth in the open division, and was led by Rhonda Replogle of Rhonda Replogle Quarter Horses, Clear Spring, MD. Performance Halter is a class designed to evaluate the conformational correctness of performance horses. To be eligible, a horse must have earned its Performance Register of Merit (ROM) from the American Quarter Horse Association.

PSU Dynamic Krymsun placed seventh overall out of 83 entries in the Green Western Riding, shown by Randy Mitchell. Green Western Riding is a class that evaluates a horse's athleticism and ability to do flying lead changes. The designation of Green indicates that the horses entered in this class must not have earned more than 10 AQHA points in the event prior to the beginning of the current year. PSU Dynamic Krymsun also showed in the Markel Western Pleasure Maturity and the Junior Western Pleasure classes.  Mitchell showed the stallion in all of the riding classes.

These two top ten finishes are a testament to PSU Dynamic Krymsun's correct conformation and attractiveness as well as his athleticism, trainability and willing attitude. In addition to his personal success, the Penn State stallion had his first and only two 2-yr-old offspring compete at the Congress. PSU Rockin Robin showed in the non-pro 2-year-old Western Pleasure under the direction of Darcy Mitchell, Freeport, PA. Also, PSU Krymsun Shadow competed and made the open division final in the two-year-old Hunter Under Saddle Stakes under the direction of Susan Stocker, Port Washington, OH.

The All American Quarter Horse Congress is the World's Largest Single-Breed Horse Show.

The equine program at Penn State dates to 1855 when the University was established, and in 1955 the American Quarter Horse became the breed of choice for departmental emphasis. Penn State's herd usually contains 3 to 5 stallions and 12 to 20 mares, and all horses are used in teaching, research and extension programs.
