2006 Kentucky Spring Premier Horse Show



The 17th Kentucky Spring Premier will be a USEF recognized show for the first time this year and there are several new classes on the schedule for 2006.  Everyone can have a good time at the Dessert Party after the last class on Wednesday evening and Barbeque after the last class on Thursday evening.


The major changes in the 2006 edition of the Kentucky Spring Premier are the days on which the show is held.  The show starts on Wednesday, May 3, and concludes with the championship sessions on Friday, May 5. The twice-daily sessions will be at 1:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. all three days. Only the Academy classes will be held on Saturday morning beginning at 10:00 a.m. This change of days will help avoid conflicts with the Kentucky Derby and will allow everyone to either attend the Derby or a “Derby Party” without missing any of the show.


Sandra Lilly of Princeton, West Virginia will judge all performance and equitation classes with Sharon Stoess, Louisville, Kentucky judging the Academy classes.


There will be a “Ride A Buck” class on Friday afternoon immediately after the last class, and the show committee has a few other “fun surprises” in store for everyone.
