Louisville Judges Announced

The judges for the Kentucky State Fair World’s Championship Horse Show have been selected, they are:  Steve Crabtree, Fran Crumpler, Kim Crumpler, George Knight, and Kent Swalla.  They will be judging all divisions, Mr. and Mrs. Crumpler will not both judge the same class. 

There have been changes made in the schedule of classes.  There will be a qualifying class and a championship class for Junior Park Horses.  The qualifying requirements for Pleasure, Park, and Park Pleasure, six (6) classes in three (3) shows, will apply to this class.  

Due to the diminished entries in the five gaited and three gaited pony qualifying classes the classes have been consolidated into one qualifying class for each of the championships.    The younger age division in Equitation has also been changed to two (2) qualifying classes, 13 year olds and 12 and under.  This was done because of the lack of entries in the 11 and under classes.
