press release from Mid-America Mane Event

Mid-America’s Mane Event Welcomes the American Dutch Harness Horse Association and Announces Additional Classes and Class Updates.


The American Dutch Harness Horse Association has requested we add classes to accommodate their breed at Mane Event.   They will be showing in our Roadster Horse Classes, Open Pleasure – Any Breed Classes and, at their request, we have added three Opportunity Classes in Open Fine Harness – Any Breed; Open Fine Harness -  Junior Horse, Open Fine Harness, and Open Fine Harness Championship. 

These classes are eligible to meet qualifying class requirements for the 2017 ADHHA National Championship. 

We welcome ADHHA to Mane Event and look forward to seeing their beautiful horses show.  

We have also added five TBA (To Be Announced) classes.  TBA classes are added to accommodate special requests of our trainers and exhibitors.

We have added Country Pleasure Three Gaited, Masters (50 & over), Show Pleasure Three Gaited, Jr. Ex.  (13 & under), Show Pleasure ASHA Junior Exhibitor Driving, Country Pleasure ASHA Junior Exhibitor Driving and Hackney Country Pleasure Driving.

We now have four $500 Jackpot Stakes.   We have four jackpot stakes on Saturday evening.  In addition to Five Gaited, Three Gaited and Fine Harness, we’ve added Park.  

HOSPITALITY during Mane Event includes a Friday night celebration, honoring all Good Hands Finals riders.  This event continues to get better every year.  It features food, music, and dancing.  Our Saturday night party, considered by many to be the best on the show circuit, features multiple gourmet food stations (including the famous Lobster Bisque) and no long waiting lines.  All exhibitors, trainers, family and friends are invited to both celebrations.  

Prize lists are available at and  Complete class details for all added classes can be found on our website and on Facebook.
