Bar President Takes Home First Prize in Horse Event


By a MetNews Staff Writer


Riverside attorney James Heiting, elected in May as the State Bar’s next president, won another honor Friday—first prize in a national horse show.

Heiting’s Dragonfire took top honors, for the second year in a row, at the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration in Shelbyville, Tenn. in the Owner/Amateur Park Pleasure Horse Canter. The celebration—an event now 67 years old— involves more than 5,000 horses competing in more than 30 categories annually.

Heiting, who takes over the State Bar’s top post from John Van de Kamp a week from Sunday, purchased the horse last year.

Another horse of Heiting’s took honors last year. Bad News Gold Hard Cash placed second in the Western Park Pleasure Horse, Amateur Riders Canter.
