Horse Show Manager.

Charlie Byron of Hartselle, Alabama is returning as the Saddlebred show manager. Charlie brings a wealth of experience to the show, having been involved with Saddlebreds, Hackneys, road horses and ponies for the past 60 years and having managed horse shows for the past 20 years. Some of the shows managed by Byron include ProAm, Germantown Charity, Dixie Jubilee and the Alabama Charity Championship. He received the UPHA Herman Miles Horse Show Manager of the Year award in 2003. Charlie’s attitude is that "if you want the show to be successful, you must let the exhibitors, trainers and owners know that you want them there and appreciate their coming to the have to work very hard to make a horse show a success".

Byron plans to make good on that promise again at the Saint Louis show with a friendly and cooperative attitude from the office to the barn and into the show ring.

The horse show once again supports Longmeadow Rescue Ranch, the farm animal division of the Humane Society of Missouri.
