Fox Trotters have been a big part of sixteen year old Kristina Pruitt's life. In September, she and her mother, Sharon, traveled to the Missouri Fox-trotting Horse Breed Association's 1997 Show and Celebration in Ava, Missouri. At the competition, Kristina and Risky Business, an 8-year old liver chestnut mare, placed first in the World Championship Mares (5 years and older) Class. That win qualified her and Risky to compete in the World Grand Championship Class. which they also won.
