Exciting Rock Creek News

The Rock Creek Horse Show, will be held June 4-7 at the Rock Creek Riding Club in Louisville, KY. With a new stall vendor providing new, clean stalls, this year's edition of Rock Creek promises to be bigger and better than ever!

Donna Pettry Smith will be the judge for all classes, including the six added-money jackpot stakes in the Five-Gaited, Three-Gaited, Fine Harness, Park, Road Pony, and Road Horse divisions. The Ladies Five-Gaited class on Friday night will be a UPHA Pink Ribbon class. The Pink Ribbon program raises much-needed funds for breast cancer research, awareness and treatment.

Additionally, there is added incentive to get your entries in before the May 19 deadline. There will be a $1,000 owner's incentive drawing for all horse owners who get their entries in on time. Each owner will only be entered once, and a name will be drawn, with the winner receiving a $1,000 prize! On top of that, there is a trainer's purse promotion. Only horses that are entered on time are eligible, but the trainer of every class winner will receive a $100 cash prize!
