National Academy Championship Announces Judges for 2017

The National Academy Championship Finals is pleased to announce the judging panel for 2017. Liz McBride Jones of Raeford, North Carolina, Sarah Russell of Wesley Chapel, Florida and Matthew Roberts of Cave Creek, Arizona have been selected to mark the cards for this year's event. The show will be held November 3-5, 2017, at the Miller Coliseum in Murfreesboro, Tenn.

Last year, this show had 896 entries from 18 states, as far away as Wisconsin, Florida, Kansas and Missouri. St. Jude's Children's Hospital received a check in the amount of $35,000.00. To date, the show has donated over $300,000. St. Jude thanks the wonderful people who support this show. The National Academy Championship Finals is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization, and put on by awesome volunteers. 

Show management is thrilled to welcome the Hackney Society to this year's event, with the addition of Academy Hackney Pleasure pony under saddle, and Academy Pleasure pony driving. There will be a preliminary class and a Championship for them.
