Mid-America Signature Horse Show To Be Held This Summer

The Mid-America Signature Horse Show, which will be held, Friday, July 27 through Sunday, July 29, is an outdoor show located at Ledges Sporting Horses Stables in Roscoe, Illinois.

Lisa Hillmer of Kearney, Missouri will be the judge. The Ledges outdoor arena has good footing, but an indoor ring is available in case the weather doesn't cooperate. All stabling is permanent in barns with good cross ventilation.

Again this year, Signature exhibitors may choose whether their wins earn A or B season trophy points on the Mid-America Horse Show Association, American Saddlebred Association of Wisconsin and Illinois American Saddlebred Pleasure Horse Association circuits. In the past, Signature wins earned points toward only A circuit season trophies. 

Mid-America Signature offers complete divisions for Saddlebred Show, Country, and Western Pleasure plus Hunt Seat, Classic Pleasure, and Open Pleasure. There also are Saddlebred performance, Park, Park Pleasure, Hackney Pleasure Driving, Road Pony classes, and Saddle Seat Equitation including a National Horse Shows "Good Hands" qualifier. All 16 Academy classes are on Saturday.

Four 'to be announced" (TBA) classes are in the schedule to accommodate class requests. If exhibitors want a class added, they can sponsor a TBA class for $75 and guarantee at least three entries.

Exhibitors declare in advance their preference for A or B season trophy points on the show’s entry blank. Entries are coded in the computer so when show results are sent to the three affiliated organizations with dual high point systems, no matter how the entry places in the class the highest placed B entry will get the equivalent of first place B season trophies points on the B circuit. The next highest B entry will get second place points, etc. The highest placing A entry will get the equivalent of first place A season trophy points, next highest will get second place season trophy points, etc.

Undeclared entries will get A circuit points. The choice is not required of Academy entries or the Illinois Horse & Pony Breeders & Exhibitors Association circuit season trophies, both of which get the same trophy points at A and B shows.

For information on the Signature Show, contact Joy Meierhans, Show Manager, at (630) 557-2575 Class list and entry blank are available at
