Exciting Plans For The Indiana Morgan Classic



The Indiana Morgan Classic show committee has more exciting plans in store for 2004. The show will be held July 1-3 in the air-conditioned arena at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis, Ind. The show will feature one money added jackpot class each night. The class will be selected at random before each evening session. The winner of each jackpot class will win $500 and another horse competing in the class will win $250 in a random drawing. The money raised at last year's well-remembered beauty pageant and successful silent auction have helped to make these jackpot classes possible.

The show schedule includes four new classes for this year with Amateur Owned Trained and Shown classes for the western, hunter, English pleasure and pleasure driving divisions. Another added attraction is "You Be The Judge." For a $5 fee, anyone can judge a class in center ring and discuss their selections with the horse show judges, Cheri Barber and Jane Morrell.

One of the highlights of the show is sure to be this year's memorable version of the Friday night exhibitors party. The feature attraction will be a sumo wrestling contest with some celebrity wrestlers now being lined up. Stay tuned for further information on this not-to-be missed party along with another great silent auction.

If you would like to obtain a prize list, contact show treasurer Karen Shields at 765-423-2290. The entry deadline is June 15.
