Mid-Illinois Charity Horse Show Cancelled



 

The Mid-Illinois Charity Horse Show which was scheduled for Saturday, May 6 and Sunday, May 7 has been cancelled for 2006 due to lack of entries. Held for more than 25 years, the Mid-Illinois Show has changed dates in recent years to try to avoid other shows’ conflicting dates. These changes have undoubtedly contributed to Mid-Illinois’ declining entries.

 

Mid-Illinois Charity offers classes for Saddlebreds, Morgans, and Tennessee Walking Horses, as well as open-breed and academy classes. It provides exhibitors a smaller, more affordable show with a friendly atmosphere. It is a great show for new or young horses that have never been shown and for less-experienced riders.  With show expenses skyrocketing, these shows should be growing rather than cancelled.

 

Show management hopes to reinstate the Mid-Illinois Charity Horse Show in 2007 and is seeking input from exhibitors in the Midwest for new dates that could ensure broader support. Other suggestions that would help the show be better supported are also welcome. Please contact show chairman Ellen Ringenberg at (815) 875-3525 or e-mail chrisbrookfarm@highstream.net.
