The Midwest Charity Horse Show, June 14-18, 2005, announces its panel of officials for its 64th show. The panel includes: Edward Bennett, Jimmy Miller and Melinda Moore for Saddlebreds, Roadsters, equitation and pony classes; Luman Wadhams for the Morgan classes; and Debby Cain for Arabians.

The Midwest Charity Horse Show 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.

As tradition dictates the Midwest Charity Horse Show will delight and entertain exhibitors with their legendary hospitality with nightly parties, Tuesday-Friday nights, after the last class in the famous “Party Barn.”

Since 1988 the Midwest Charity Horse Show, an all-volunteer organization, has donated its annual proceeds to Camp COCO creating an endowment fund that has exceeded $116,000. Thanks to the generous show, class and party sponsors Midwest was able to donate $6,000 to Camp COCO from the 2004 show.
