Indianapolis Charity Show Releases Important Show Info

We are having a Morgan division at the 2004 Indianapolis Charity Horse Show. This was an unintentional, but serious omission on the flyers distributed at the recent national convention of the United Professional Horseman’s Association held in Indianapolis and in some of the advertisements in various publications. We profusely apologize for this error and wish to reassure the Morgan exhibitors and trainers that you and your horses are most welcome. We hope to see increased numbers of Morgans.

Sammi Hazen of Woodinville, Wash., will judge the Morgans, Morgan Equitation, Friesians and Open Carriage classes. Scott Matton of Hartland, Wisc will judge the American Saddlebred classes, Hackney Pony classes, Roadsters, Saddle Seat Equitation and Academy classes.

The horse show is adding a half day to the schedule starting the first session the evening of June 2 (Wednesday) at 7:00 p.m. The horses may ship in as of noon, Monday, May 31. If any stables that are shipping by commercial carriers find they need to arrive before that time due to the schedule of the commercial carriers, it is necessary to contact the show manager, Phyllis Harris at (317) 545-1143 in advance of the expected arrival so someone will be there to assist you and direct you to the correct stable area.

Please note that, due to a scheduling conflict at the fairgrounds, the Pepsi Coliseum will not be available for working horses/ponies prior to the classes Wednesday evening. We will schedule classes for Wednesday evening that we understand trainers and exhibitors will not feel the need to work in the coliseum prior to the beginning of the show. The large make-up ring in the West Pavilion and the covered, outside ring will be available for working from Monday afternoon on, and we will arrange to have the coliseum available for working after the classes Wednesday evening.

We are offering a new venture for the 2004 show with two classes designated as winner-take-all. These will be the American Saddlebred Three-Gaited Amateur and the Morgan English Pleasure Amateur for $1,500 each.
