The Dixie Cup Spring Classic Will Put Your Mind on Georgia This Spring




Details are shaping up for another great edition of THE DIXIE CUP SPRING CLASSIC at the
Georgia International Horse Park this spring. For what many know as “that Morgan show” that began in the 1970’s in Georgia, THE DIXIE CUP SPRING CLASSIC has grown into a spring show with something for everyone. A complete schedule features classes for American Saddlebreds, Morgans, Ponies, Roadsters as well as dressage, equitation and academy. And, as always, one very unforgettable exhibitors party at the Cherokee Run Golf Club House.

Benefiting the Georgia Department of Agriculture - Equine Rescue Program and the Rockdale Special Olympics, THE DIXIE CUP SPRING CLASSIC has made a difference in these worthwhile programs over the past few years. The Dixie Cup’s major target continues to be veterinary medicines and surgery funding for the protection of abused and starving horses in the state of
Georgia. The Dixie Cup is also a sponsor of the Georgia Equine Legislature Activities Program that works for the welfare of all horses in the State of Georgia.  

Judges for this year’s event include Larry Bolen of
Perrysburg, Ohio and Renee Lavery of Sharon Center, Ohio. The show is scheduled for May 11-13 with three sessions each day. The prize list has been mailed and is available online at www.thedixiecup.com.

Highlights for 2006 will include the $1,000 ASB Park Horse Stake and the $1,000 Morgan English Pleasure Stake. In addition, the UPHA ASB Park Pleasure Classic as well as the UPHA Morgan Pleasure Driving Classic will be included in the schedule. The show will now offer separate stakes for amateurs and junior exhibitors in the
ASB Park division. ASHAF ASB Show Pleasure Driving and Fine Harness Driving classes have been added to the schedule as well as an Adult Equitation Championship. Academy classes moved to Saturday afternoon with the Saturday performance session moved to morning.

The home of THE DIXIE CUP SPRING CLASSIC is the impressive
Georgia International Horse Park. From the beginning, it has been groomed for greatness. Since opening its gates in September of 1995, the Park has already served as the equestrian venue for the largest sporting event in the world: The 1996 Centennial Olympic Games. Our Park was the setting for all equestrian events, as well as the first ever mountain bike competition and the final two events of the modern pentathlon of the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games. For more information on the Park, go to: www.georgiahorsepark.com.
