Kentucky State Fair Clarifications

The prize list for the Kentucky State Fair has an error in the time frame for the qualification of the show pleasure and country pleasure divisions. The time frame for both these divisions is from August 29, 2004 to August 20, 2005. The 2004 Kentucky State Fair is not included as a qualifying show for the 2005 World’s Championship Horse Show.

The following championships in the roadster pony division will require heel measurements of the first and fourth place ponies. These classes are the Junior Exhibitor Championship-Driver 13 & Under (Friday morning); Amateur Road Pony Championship (Friday Night); Junior Exhibitor Championship-Driver 14-17 (Saturday Morning); and the World’s Grand Champion Roadster Pony (Saturday night). There will be a short meeting of those exhibitors competing in these classes to explain the procedures. All exhibitors will be notified of the time and place of the meeting via flyers, the video information channel, and announcement over the barn speaker system.

Upon completion of each of these classes, the first and fourth place ponies will be directed to a designated area where the heel measurements will take place. The driver, trainer, or handler of the pony must present the measurement card or a copy at that time. If the heel measurement exceeds the heel measurement on the card, the overall height of the pony must be measured again within one hour of that session.

Also, be aware that a Saddlebred horse must show in the recorded owner’s name. If the horse has not been transferred and/or the paper work is not in the ASHA office a fine of $250.00 will be assessed for filing and signing a false affidavit.
