Murray will be the judge of the American Saddlebreds. The Morgan judge and other officials will be announced soon. Mrs. Bonnie Phillips will again chair the ribbons and trophies. Dr. Wayne T. Moses and Louis J. Labadini (Chairmen) and the committee are very excited about the plans for the upcoming show.
