Southern Saddlebred Fall Finale Adds Classes




The Southern Saddlebred Fall Finale will be held October 19-21 at the Tennessee Miller Coliseum in Murfreesboro with Scarlett Mattson as manager and George Knight as the judge.

Management requests that exhibitors get their stall count/entries in as early as possible. They also remind exhibitors that horses won’t be allowed to arrive until Tuesday morning.

The following classes have been added or changed:
11. ASB Three-Gaited Park Limit Horse
23. ASB Ladies Fine Harness
23a. Carriage Pleasure Driving Open
25. AHHS Medallion Roadster Pony Junior Exhibitor 
41. ASB Three-Gaited Park Junior Horse
41a. Hackney Pony Amateur
41b. Saddle & Bridle Hunter Seat Classic
52. AHHS Medallion Roadster Pony Under Saddle Jr. Exhibitor
79. Harness Pony Amateur
79a. Carriage Pleasure Driving Championship

Show organizer Jackie Hale also urged exhibitors to make their hotel reservations immediately as the Host Hotel block rate expires October 1 and MTSU has a home game that weekend so hotels will sell out.
Dan Justus will be providing pre-bedding services. You may contact him at (859) 213-2793 or dan@justusequine.com.

“Thank you for considering the Fall Finale as your next stop in the gypsy bandwagon circus of horse shows,” said Jackie Hale. “We promise to do all we can to make it a fun and enjoyable experience and if nothing else, we promise to feed you really well and have free wine and beer."
