NC State Championship Adds Four Classes

Manager Bill Whitley made a few announcements regarding the upcoming North Carolina State Championship Charity Horse Show, which will be celebrating its 56th anniversary this September 11-14 in Raleigh, NC. One of the icons of the southeast circuit, the State Championship Charity has long hosted a top-notch show featuring great hospitality, entertainment and crowd participation. It also has a longstanding association with the Raleigh Host Lions Club.

Due to multiple requests, the following classes have been added to the schedule: Class #17.1 ASB Five-Gaited Pony, Class #37.1 ASB Three-Gaited Pony, Class #58.1 Three-Gaited Park Three-Year-Old, and Class #84.1 ASB Park Pleasure Three-Year-Old.

Always looking to add entertainment value to the show, Whitley announced Raleigh would feature Terrier Races and a Fat Dog Race on Saturday at 5:00 p.m. Also performing Friday and Saturday evenings will be “The Wild Riders,” [email protected]. They are touted as PRCA Equestrian Entertainment at its finest!

Judging the 2013 show will be Jim Cherry, Ricky Harris and Melissa Moore in the Saddlebred, Hackney, Roadster and Equitation divisions. Harris will also judge the Morgan division. Other officials include Doug Shiflet photographer, Kent Moeller ringmaster, Mark Farrar announcer, Stacey Beam organist, and Beth Snider and Sandy Backer show secretaries.
