Midwest Charity Horse Show again offering “Best in Show”


SPRINGFIELD, IL –The award winning Midwest Charity Horse Show is offering “Best in Show” again this year. “Best in Show” will include all breed divisions of horses and ponies, judged by Midwest’s distinguished panel of judges, during the week based on best show horse/pony performance. The panel includes Ellen Beard, Nancy Becker, Jimmy Robertson, Bonnie Sogoloff and Katherine Bunn. The winning owner will be presented $500 on Saturday, June 17, 2006, during the evening performance. Midwest’s first time “Best in Show” winner was Mary Jane Fredrickson and her three-year-old colt Can You Hear Me Now.


The 65th Midwest Charity Horse Show, June 13-17, 2006, held at the Illinois State Fairgrounds Coliseum runs five days with class sessions at 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. daily and will feature a full line-up of classes for Saddlebreds, Roadsters, Hackney and Harness ponies, equitation, Morgans and Arabians. Midwest also offers the ASHA Foundation Jr. Exhibitor Driving Challenge and a full line-up of UPHA Classic classes for Hackney ponies; Saddlebreds in the fine-harness, five-gaited and three-gaited divisions; and Morgans in the pleasure driving, park pleasure, and park harness divisions.
