Germantown Charity Update



The 57th Germantown Charity Horse Show, June 7 - 11, 2005, will be hosting its visitors in all new barns this year, as the last of the six permanent barns is now finished. Charles Byron will return as horse show manager for the Saddlebreds, Hackneys, Roadsters and Walking Horses, and Kent Moeller will continue overseeing the Hunter/Jumper section. Armon Effinger will be judging the gaited horses.

The managers have been busy fine-tuning the show's schedule, and a prize list is available for review on the website at www.GCHS.org. It will also be mailed out in early April. In addition to the new barn, other improvements include new footing in all rings.

Rich in tradition and bursting in atmosphere, the Germantown Charity Horse Show remains a unique experience for most exhibitors. Its Southern hospitality has been praised as quite extraordinary, and this year's show will be no exception. A Welcome Reception with live music has been planned for Monday night as everyone is getting settled in for the week. A Welcome Wagon will be making its rounds again daily providing help and refreshments. Other daily events include the Morning Call and the Ice Cream Party. The Wine and Cheese Parties proved popular last year and will be on the schedule again this year as well as the Fish Fry on Friday night. The Golf Tournament will also return on Thursday morning.

Germantown is conveniently located just outside of Memphis, Tenn., offering a variety of attractions from Graceland to Beale Street, not to mention fine shopping and dining.
