Jubilee Regional Morgan Horse Show Doubles Payouts For 2008 Event

Springfield, Illinois – The exhibitors of the 43rd Annual Jubilee Regional Morgan Horse Show will have more opportunity than ever to accumulate prize money at this year’s show. Show President, Mark Bodnar, is pleased to announce that prize money awarded to competitors will double for all championships in every division.

“The $500 classes will all be $1,000 classes, the $250 junior championships will now pay $500 and so on throughout all of the payback classes, Bodnar said. The show will also be awarding money in the junior exhibitor pleasure championships, and the High Point Sport Horse will receive $250. Bodnar stated, “It has been a mission of the board of directors to give back to its exhibitors and growth over the past two years has enabled us to begin to reach our goals.”

In addition to the increases, Jubilee will once again offer the $4,000+ Amateur Jackpot class, which will be the Amateur Park Saddle Championship at this year’s show. This class has been a huge success since it began four years ago. “The number of Park horses in attendance has been increasing each year so this should be an exciting selection for the show, Bodnar said.  

Judging decisions will be made by Peggy Alderman of North Clarendon, VT and Garn Walker of Auburn, CA, and the line-up of show officials including Show Manager, Fred Nava, will continue to produce an exciting show in Springfield, Illinois beginning August 27th and running through August 30th, 2008.

“The depth of the competition has grown every year and in addition to enjoying the horses, we want our exhibitors to have a great time at the parties and events held in conjunction with the show. We promise to continue to make improvements across the board and are working on improvements to our growing sport horse classes and to new youth programs.” Bodnar explained.

Championships for the Walk/Trot riders in all three seats for both pleasure and equitation have been added to the list of classes after many requests by instructors and parents. Further announcements will be made in months to come concerning other events including this year’s Jubilee Hall of Fame Inductees.
