Custom-Made Jacket to Winner of Mid-A’s Pink Ribbon Class

The Mid-A Morgan Horse Show Committee is pleased to announce that Marsha Shepard of Marsha De Arriaga has generously donated a custom-made western jacket to the winner of the Pink Ribbon class. This year, Mid-A has designated the Ladies Western Pleasure Championship as its Pink Ribbon class. The class will be pinned on Saturday during the Mid-Atlantic Morgan Horse Show, held June 23-26 at the Virginia Horse Center in Lexington, VA.

"Marsha will work with the winner of the class to design a custom-made western jacket," said Kim Germ-Cramer, Chair of the Pink Ribbon Committee. "Marsha is not only a consummate professional with amazing taste and grace, but she also has a big heart when it comes to worthwhile causes."

Marsha will also continue to support Mid-A’s Silent Auction with a donation again this year -- a ready-made shirt, vest and tie for a young rider, size 4-14.

In 2009, on behalf of the Mid-A Show, $8,400 to was raised for the UPHA Foundation’s Pink Ribbon Program. Kim and other committee members hope to repeat this effort. In 2008 and 2009, the UPHA Foundation donated approximately $170,000 to breast cancer research.

Judges for this year’s show are Terry Jones Brennan and Josh Merritt in the main ring. Terry, Sandra Vine, and Nicky Vogel will judge the sport horse divisions.
