Bluegrass Select Series Classes Offered at Ky Spring Premier



In keeping with the ASHA’s initiative of creating a Select Series of classes around the country for beginning and intermediate level horses and riders/drivers, the Bluegrass Select Series will be held in Kentucky this year, starting with the Kentucky Spring Premier Horse Show.

This program features a series of classes held at designated Kentucky shows. These classes are designed for those horses not showing at the World’s Championship Horse Show to have a place to show against the same level horses, riders and drivers. These classes will NOT count as qualifying classes for the World’s Championship Horse Show. There will be championship classes for this series to be held at the Kentucky Fall Classic with prizes and awards above the normal trophies and ribbons.

To be in the program an exhibitor must declare that their horse will not show at the World’s Championship Horse Show in that year, under their ownership. If the horse does show at Louisville it will NOT be eligible for the Bluegrass Select Series Championship classes and year-end awards. Also, to be eligible for the Championship classes a horse must have shown in at least (3) classes at (3) different shows.

The classes offered will include Amateur/Junior Exhibitor Five-Gaited, Amateur Junior/Exhibitor Three-Gaited, Adult/Junior Exhibitor Five-Gaited Show Pleasure, Adult/Junior Exhibitor Three-Gaited Show Pleasure, and Adult/Junior Exhibitor Country Pleasure.

Currently, the Kentucky Spring Premier, Rock Creek, Bourbon County, Woodford County, and the Rock Creek Novice Show have scheduled Bluegrass Select Series classes with more shows being added. The championships for the Series will be held at the Kentucky Fall Classic.
