The third annual IASHA Spring Warm-Up Show, sponsored UPHA Chapter 11 and the Indiana American Saddlebred Horse Association, will be ready to roll at Crossroads Arena and Expo Center, March 18-19-20 at Cloverdale, Indiana.

The show provides an ideal venue for Midwestern exhibitors to debut new teams and test drive seasoned veterans early in the season at a first rate yet affordable event close to home. Joining the team again will be show secretary Judy McManama, photographer Terry Young and popular videographers Seehorse Video. Lisa Waller, Heiskell, Tennesee, will judge all divisions

The inaugural Spring-Warm-Up premiered to rave reviews in 2009, with last year’s event attracting top stables from Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky and Missouri. Crossroads Arena proved to be a big hit with exhibitors and trainers alike. Located only 25 miles west of Indianapolis, the new, heated, indoor show facility features 500 stalls, a large show arena, full size make-up ring, seating area, ringside tables, concessions and vendor space all under one roof. The Holiday Inn Cloverdale will again be the show headquarters hotel.

The Spring Warm-Up offers over 120 classes for Saddlebreds, Morgans, roadsters, open pleasure, Hackney ponies and equitation, plus extensive classes for beginning through advanced academy riders in saddle seat, hunt seat and western. The academy division will be the championship finals for the UPHA Chapter 11 Academy Club but these classes are open to all academy riders. The NHS, Medallion and UPHA Challenge Cup classes will also return for 2011, as well as the Saddle & Bridle Shatner and Hunter Classic qualifiers. New for 2011 will be ASB Model, Youth Showmanship In Hand and Morgan Park classes. The Warm-Up is a participating show in the Equine Services Roadster Cup series for both horses and ponies.

Exhibitors will enjoy the Spring Warm-Up’s Hoosier hospitality and friendly management, highlighted by the gala exhibitor party following Saturday evening’s show. The UPHA Chapter 11 Academy Club will once again host its popular special receptions for riders, instructors and parents after the academy sessions on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.

Prize lists will be mailed before the end of January. Entries close March 3 with post entries accepted. However, management encourages exhibitors to reserve stalls and ringside tables early – tables sold out in 2010.
