ASAA Announces New Southwest Pine Classic Horse Show

The American Saddlebred Association of Arizona is pleased to present a new annual horse show, The Southwest Pine Classic Multi-Breed Horse Show, which will be held at the Coconino County Fairgrounds in Flagstaff Arizona. Horse show dates are July 24-26, 2009. The event will be judged by Ms. Gayle Lampe of Columbia, Missouri. Ms. Lampe will judge all horse show divisions which include a full slate of classes for Saddlebreds, Morgans, Friesians, Saddleseat Equitation, Academy, and all-breed Opportunity classes.

The Southwest Pine Classic is held at the very popular Fort Tuthill County Park Fair Grounds located just south of Flagstaff, Arizona. The horse show grounds are situated within a beautiful pine forest complete with camping sites, picnic ramadas, and bridle paths. The location and climate will be a very welcome respite for Phoenix and Tucson residents in July.

The horse show will be managed and announced by Joe Husband, Phoenix, Arizona, and the show secretary is the very capable Michele Wilson of Desert Hills, Arizona. Horse Show Chairman Bobbie Reid is pleased that ASAA is able to continue the tradition of a Northern Arizona horse show event during the summer. This horse show will be a great getaway with a relaxed schedule featuring day classes only, leaving exhibitors free to enjoy the local scenery, activities, and restaurants.
