Mid-America Spring Moves to Thursday to Saturday for Easter



This year’s Mid-America Spring Show falls on Easter weekend, and will be held on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, but not on Easter Sunday.  Actual show dates are March 28-30. Allison Deardorff of Molalla, Oregon, will judge all classes.

Mid-America Spring is a great way to start the show season as it’s all indoors, under one roof, at the Ledges facility on the Illinois/Wisconsin state line in Roscoe, IL.  Ledges is a fully heated 72,000 square foot indoor facility, with 275 oak sided permanent stalls -- making it comfortable in any weather.

Mid-America Spring offers complete divisions for Saddlebred five- and three-gaited, fine harness, and Park performance horses as well as pleasure classes for Show, Country, Western, Hunt Seat and even Open Pleasure classes.  There also are Hackney Show Pleasure Driving, Road Pony classes and saddle seat equitation age groups plus Good Hands, USEF Medal, UPHA Challenge Cup and Pleasure Medallion qualifiers.  All 14 Academy classes are on Good Friday afternoon.

Three TBA classes are in the schedule to accommodate class requests.  If exhibitors want a class added, they can sponsor a TBA class for $100 and a guarantee of at least three entries.  To get show updates fast – including TBA classes – LIKE Mid-America on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/MidAmericaHorseShow .
