Challenge of Champions Horse Show Cancelled


Editor’s Note: The following letter was received this morning (Oct. 28) from Dr. Wayne T. Moses, Chairman of the Challenge of Champions Horse Show in Wellington, Fla.


Dear Friends:  

Ray Cloninger (my show manager) just called. He was checking with the show grounds, and it is impossible to hold a show this year because of so much damage to the barns, grounds, box seat area, etc.  We are saddened by this. However, next year the show will be November 9, 10 & 11, 2006.  Even with all the devastation we all have experienced we can thank God that we are all in good health and with His Blessings in many ways.   Our lights just came on about an hour ago. Our phones are not working as yet. I do hope we will all get together next year - God willing.     


Thanks for your valuable support and love.   Wishing you only the best for the Thanksgiving and Christmas Season coming up and YES we do have a lot to be thankful for.  Good health is wished you and your family now and always.      


"Dr. Wayne" T. Moses            

Telephone:  561/362-8530   


PS:  Next year we will raise the moneys for the needy children and families and bring even more smiles to all of them.  Again, thanks for all your love and support and God bless each of you and keep you in good health forever.


PPS:  Any moneys you sent in for entries will be returned to you as soon as possible.   If you have any questions please e-mail me at or call me at 561/362-8530.
