Indianapolis Charity Announces Academy Judge

The Indianapolis Charity Horse Show is pleased to announce that Brooke Jacobs, Georgetown, Ky., will judge all academy classes in 2010. Held June 2-5 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, Indy Charity offers an extensive academy division for beginning through advanced riders on Saturday morning, June 5. Lewis Eckard will be judging the balance of the show, which includes Saddlebreds, Hackneys, Morgans, roadsters, Friesians, open pleasure and equitation.

The horse show has also added several knowledgeable horse people to its board and has expanded the committee members to better serve the trainers and exhibitors.

Peter Fenton was engaged as manager for the 2009 show and proved to be a wonderful addition to the staff.  He is again manager of the 2010 show and has had invaluable input as to planning the show ring, etc. in this new building.

Dewey Bass is back as stable/grounds manager and, with his vast knowledge of the horse industry, will be another go-to person for keeping everything flowing smoothly. 

Stabling will be in the South Pavillion with the long straight-away area as usual for working and the West Pavillion will also have stabling with the large work area the trainers like. The outside covered ring will have the footing re-worked and will be another work area.

The UPHA Chapter 11 is planning nice goodies for participating stables and are working to make this a wonderful show.

The blocked rooms at the host hotel, the Sheraton Hotel and Suites at Keystone at the Crossing are filling fast.  Call to get your reservations by the cut-off date of May 5 to get the horse show rate.  Information is available on the horse show web-site

For further information, please contact Show Secretary Judy McManama at 317-773-3931 or
