ACS Ride For Life Wins Award and Sets Show Date

The American Cancer Society Ride For Life Horse Show has been voted the Best One Day Show in the Appalachian Horse Show Association for 2004 and 2005. This multi-breed show will celebrate its seventh year and has been set for June 10, 2006. The ACS Ride For Life will be held at the spacious and beautiful Tazewell County Fairground in Tazewell, Va. The event begins at 9:30 a.m. with a fun-filled youth show for anyone 17-years-old and under. At 1 and 6:30 p.m., the performance classes will be held for all ages. There are over 60 classes for American Saddlebred, western, Arabian, Hackney and Standardbred, among others. Good stalls and camper hookups await the exhibitors.

The American Cancer Society volunteers will be selling delicious food at the concession stand and special lasagna dinners and desserts will be featured. There will be a variety of vendors selling food, jewelry, tack and other horse related items. Again this year at the souvenir stand, a silent auction will be held for everyone’s enjoyment. An art show and scavenger hunt are also planned for the youth. All exhibitors and sponsors will be invited to an ice cream social on the grounds.

A special trophy will be presented to the high point award winner from the youth show. The Appalachian Horse Show Association Junior Judging competition will be held during the show again this year. Anyone 17-years-old and under may enter this event by signing up with the show secretary by 1 p.m.

The purpose of the show is to raise funds for the American Cancer Society and create awareness of the programs that it offers. The horse show wants to celebrate and honor cancer survivors while remembering loved ones lost to this disease. The horse show's goal is to provide family entertainment with a quality horse show for the exhibitors and the community.
