Far West Will Be Held As Scheduled



The Far West Regional Morgan Horse will be held as scheduled on June 22-25, 2011 at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds in Redmond, Oregon. Official Show Veterinarian Dr. Cassee Terry reports that no horses have been on the grounds in the last three weeks eliminating any concerns regarding recent news surrounding the EHV-1 situation.

Oregon State Veterinarian, Dr. Don Hansen, stated in an Article posted in the Saturday, May 28th edition of the Oregon Bulletin that the horse virus outbreak has been contained. In addition, show management will enforce that no other horses other than those entered in the show with the appropriate health papers will be allowed on the show grounds before or during the show.

All late entry fees will be waived for late entries prior to the show. Plan to be at the show to toast the opening of the Ringside Pony Club Lounge and witness the inductions to the first annual Far West Horse Show’s Hall of Fame on Friday evening.

In addition to the great lineup of classes, The Far West Regional Morgan Horse Show also announces the addition of several new activities at the show this year as well as three new classes:

63.1 Western Pleasure Open,

75.1 Youth Park Harness

322.1 In Hand Trail
