Indianapolis Charity Horse Show Dates, Judge, Venue



The 36th annual Indianapolis Charity Horse Show verifies the dates for the show. The show will start Wednesday, June 2, with an evening session. It will end Saturday evening, June 5. This positions the show so it does not conflict with other shows in the Midwest.

Divisions offered are: Saddlebred, Hackney, Morgan, Roadster, Friesian, Equitation and Academy. Some of the more specialized classes offered are: UPHA Classics for Saddlebreds and Hackneys, Challenge Cups, the Pink Ribbon class, NHS "Good Hands", Saddle & Bridle’s trio of classes, AHHS Medallions to name a few. An important feature is that the Indianapolis Charity Horse Show is a qualifying show for the Kentucky World Championship Show.

Lewis Eckard of Hildebran, NC will judge all divisions except Academy. The Academy judge will be announced at a later date.

The show is changing venues within the Indiana State Fairgrounds. A large performance ring will be built especially for the show in the Toyota Blue Ribbon Pavilion. The building has recently been renovated, is light, air conditioned and adjacent to the covered outdoor ring. Ring side tables will be available. The Show Office, vendors and concessions will all be contained within the one building. Stabling will be in the South and West Pavilions as before. Each Pavilion will have its own work ring. When not being used as the make-up ring the covered outdoor ring will provide a third work area. Special attention will be paid to the footing in all areas.

Premium books will be mailed soon. To get on the mailing list, please call Judy McManama at 317-773-3931. The premium book will soon be available to download from www.indycharityhs.org and there will be a link to the show’s new Facebook page for updates and news.
