St. Louis National Charity Horse Show begins this week!

With Indian summer weather moving in and the promise of great fun and competition, the 29th Annual St. Louis National Charity Horse Show commences this Wednesday, September 27 at the
National Equestrian Center in Lake Saint Louis, MO.  Horses and riders from throughout the country will gather and participate in a variety of exciting events and celebrations during the week, culminating with the Saddle and Bridle Shatner Western Pleasure World’s Championship on Saturday night.  Judges for the show include Melissa Moore, Debbie Foley, Michael Craghead and Patti Kent.

The St. Louis National Charity Horse Show is proud to be chosen as the 2006-2007 ASHA Regional Championship Show for Region 5.  Regional Championships will be awarded in designated classes to the highest placed horse that is stabled in and owned by a resident of Missouri, Illinois or Kansas.  The ASHA Region Champion will be the eligible horse and rider placing the highest on the judges’ cards and will be awarded a championship neck ribbon.  If the Region 5 Champion of a specific class is not the class winner in that specific stake or championship class, the Region 5 Champion will make a separate victory pass.  More details and information on designated classes will be available at the show.


St. Louis National Charity Horse Show and Saddle & Bridle Magazine are also proud to announce the induction of six horses into the Saddle & Bridle Western and Hunter

‘Hall of Fame’ on Friday, 29 September.  The horses include:  Snow Job, Janian’s Midsummer Night, CH Starfire Fox, Good Luck Christopher, Desert Princess, and Great Day’s Buckaneer.


The fun and festivities continue throughout the week with parties and receptions starting on Tuesday night.  The parties are free to all exhibitors and participants in the St. Louis National Charity Horse Show and include a Welcome Reception on Tuesday evening, the “Meet Me in St. Louis” Reception on Wednesday night, a “Taste of St. Louis” Party on Thursday night and the annual Exhibitors’ Dinner on Friday night. The Pleasure Medallion finalists will be honored at a breakfast on Saturday morning.


The show is thrilled to once again benefit the Humane Society of Missouri’s Longmeadow Rescue Ranch, which specializes in rescuing and rehabilitating large animals with a concentration on horses.  Hope to see you at the “Charity”!
