Dixie Cup Spring Classic Announces Judges And Changes



The Board of Directors of Dixie Cup 2016 have announced that Rob Byers will be judging the Saddlebred, Hackney, Roadster, Friesian, and Saddleseat Equitation Classes, while Kathryn Schwartz will be handling Morgan, Western, and Hunter Classes.

The prize list, entry blanks and class schedule are online at www.thedixiecup.com. Hard copy prize lists will also be sent when received from the printers. Meanwhile, The Dixie Cup is also already on Horse Shows Online, which is set up this year to allow online entries. This is a great time saver during this busy time of year.

The Academy Division will see some changes with walk-trot Hunt Seat and walk-trot Saddle Seat  separated for our 17 and Under Exhibitors.   Everyone will go back together for the Walk-Trot Championship.

This year, the Spotlight, with an additional gift, will be awarded in all Equitation Championships (except breed specific classes), and in both Academy Championships.

Dixie Cup 2016 will also host the Southeastern Hackney Association's Incentive Program for the state of Georgia. Bring your ponies.

Dixie Cup will also be holding a variety of parties, including the popular Walking Taco Party, A Cowboy Hoedown at Cherokee Run Golf Club, and the VIP Tables will, again, have a theme for each evening, finishing up with "Puttin' On The Ritz" on Saturday Evening.

Questions, contact Barbara Goda at 770 634-1232 (godabarb@aol.com ) or Paula Yeska at 770 993 6521 (pyeska@aol.com). Welcome to our new secretary, Lori Nelson 859-457-0841 (loriluvshorses@yahoo.com)
