Mid-Summer Classic Horse Show

The 29th annual Mid-Summer Classic Horse Show will be held June 9-10 at Wills Park Equestrian Center in Alpharetta, Ga. This year’s theme is Hawaiian Luau. The judge this year is Mary Lou Greenwell and the new show manager is Donna Walker. As always, Junior ASHAG will be hosting the show. A total of 74 classes are offered this year including classes for Saddlebreds, Morgans, road horses and road ponies.

Included this year is a Pro-Am Park Pleasure Challenge Class, which means the trainer shows the horse in one direction of the ring and the amateur/juvenile shows the other way. Mid-Summer offers several Saddle & Bridle classes including the Pleasure Equitation Medallion, the Shatner Western Pleasure and the Hunt Seat Classic. There is also a NHS Good Hands class, as well as a costume class, bareback equitation and the dog/owner look-alike class.

Proceeds from Mid-Summer will be benefiting Saddlebred Rescue, a non-profit charity that is dedicated to saving American Saddlebred horses. Saddlebred Rescue is organized by Christy Parker. Each year, Junior ASHAG has a silent auction to help lead the way to a successful horse show. In addition to the silent auction, a progressive barn party will be held Friday night after the show. Many barns decorate their stabling area for the barn-decorating contest in which prizes will be given.
