St. Louis Extends Entry Deadline



In the midst of what remains of the last days of summer, it is hard to believe that the fall show season and the St. Louis National Charity Horse Show are just around the corner! Less than a month is left before the official start of the 32nd annual St. Louis Charity Horse Show which will also celebrate its 10th year at the National Equestrian Center in

Lake St. Louis, MO. The show is set to take place September 23-26, 2009, and we are pleased to announce a deadline extension for entries to September 8, 2009.

The judging lineup includes Betsy Boone, Concord, N.C.; Lynda Freseth, Oconomowoc, WI.; and Melinda Moore, Lawrenceburg, KY. With first-class judges, top Saddlebred contenders and Midwest hospitality all during the week, the goal for our show is "good friends, good horses, and a good time."

Top contenders from all over the country will come to compete in the various national championship events including the Saddle and Bridle Shatner Western Pleasure World’s Grand Championship, the Hunter Classic Finals, the Junior and Senior Pleasure Equitation Medallion Finals, the Adult Equitation ‘America’s Cup’ Championship, a UPHA Pink Ribbon Ladies Five Gaited Stake, and the RS Palmer Memorial $5,000 Five Gaited Stake. Additionally, there will once again be a USEF and USDF Dressage Show on Thursday afternoon, demonstrating the versatility of the American Saddlebred Horse. The St. Louis National Charity Horse show runs Wednesday through Saturday night and we look forward to seeing a variety of new and returning barns, a long list of competitive horses, and our valued exhibitors and sponsors. Cool autumn days, Irish crystal prizes, and the traditional St. Louis National decorations set the stage for this annual event with all its fun and hospitality, including nightly exhibitor parties and great food!

For many, the focal point of the show is the charity it benefits: Longmeadow Rescue Ranch, the farm animal division of the Humane Society of Missouri. The relationship between St. Louis National Charity Horse Show and Longmeadow continues to grow and thrive as we work together to support the different aspects of equestrian sports and animal interests.

The show will again take place at the National Equestrian Center in growing Lake St. Louis, where new restaurants, shopping, and entertainment continue to emerge. Come to St. Louis and take part in the 32nd year of rich tradition that is the St. Louis National Charity Horse Show! As September fades from summer into autumn...we look forward to crisp fall evenings at the Charity, socializing with new and old friends, and exciting competition! Come and enjoy all St. Louis has to offer and we’ll see you at the Charity!
