Germantown Charity Adds Prize Money and Trail Class

The Germantown Charity Horse Show has added $660 in prize money to both the Three-Gaited and Five-Gaited Championships, bringing the total purse for each class to $2,160.  The highest placing professional, amateur and youth rider will receive first place prize money in each of the two classes. 

“Our show gets a huge crowd of horse-lovers from the local area and we want to make sure the American Saddlebreds are showcased in the very best way,” explains show manager Mark Farrar.  “This year we moved these to championships earlier in the Saturday night schedule so more people will be there to watch, and opened them to amateur, youth and professional riders to make a more exciting class.”  

Also, in response to the growing Western division at the show, an Opportunity Trail Obstacle class has been added on Saturday morning.  This is in addition to the Saddle & Bridle Working Western Pleasure class already on the schedule.

The Germantown Charity Horse Show is scheduled for June 3-7 in Germantown, Tenn., (located just outside of Memphis).  Clark Clouse of Versailles, Kentucky will be judging the American Saddlebred, Hackney, Road Horse, and Carriage classes.  For more information call Mark Farrar at 615-604-4616 or email  You can also visit the show’s website,
