All American Classic Announces Judges



The All American Horse Classic, UPHA National Honor Show for 2008, is gearing up for another outstanding event September 8-12 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. The Classic, which benefits Strides To Success, an equine assisted learning program, is proud to be the 2009 ASHA Bluegrass Regional Championship.

The All American offers a bounty of prize money and incentive programs for both Saddlebred and Hackney exhibitors which include the ASR Sweepstakes, the All American Weanling and Three Year Old Cups, the AHHS Limited Breeders Stakes, the Indiana Saddlebred and Hackney Futurities, $500 Added UPHA Classics for Saddlebreds and Hackneys, plus ASGN Added Prize Money - $1800 added money in the Amateur Three Gaited Championship and the Adult Show Pleasure Championship, with $5000 added prize money in the Open Five Gaited Stake. $160,000 in KSOBA incentives will again be offered in the ASR Four Year Old Sweepstakes to eligible owners, bringing the total amount of awards offered at the 2009 All American to over $700,000.

New to the show in 2009 will be the ASHA Junior Exhibitor Driving Challenge classes as well as a Hackney Country Pleasure division. The show will once again put equitation in the spotlight with the UPHA Pleasure and Adult Challenge Cup Championships and the UPHA Five Gaited Horsemanship Finals. Roadster horse classes at the All American Classic will qualify for the ARHPA Equine Roadster Cup.

Judging Saddlebreds, the ASR Sweepstakes and roadster horses will be Paul Boone, Brian Chappel and Rick Wallen. Paul Boone, Brian Chappel and Rob Wilson will mark the cards in the All American Cup and Indiana Futurities, while Rick Wallen will handle duties for the open equitation division. UPHA Challenge Cup Championships will be decided by Adam Clauson, Ann Slomkowski and Rick Wallen. Rob Wilson will handle judging duties for the Hackneys, Friesians and carriage classes. Seehorse Video will be back by popular demand to handle videography, and Rick Osteen will snap the shots from center ring.

With outstanding facilities, a great roster of classes, a friendly staff, a relaxed atmosphere, and its trademark Hoosier hospitality, the 2009 All American Classic is the place to be in September. Entries close, July 27, and prize lists will be mailed in June.
