News From Indianapolis Charity



The Indianapolis Charity Horse Show, to be held June 1-5, has made a few changes to its venue.

Show management has added the USEF Adult Medal class to its roster. In addition, there will be an Exceptional Equitation class.

The class for Friesians Under Saddle will be judged as listed in USEF rule book under FR204: WALK-TROT GREEN HORSE PLEASURE and are not required to canter. After telephone conversation with USEF office, management made this change and it will be posted in the horse show office.

Horses may start arriving at noon on May 30. If it is necessary to arrive earlier due to a commercial carrier schedule, please contact Phyllis Harris at 317-336-7569 as soon as possible. Otherwise, there may not be personnel at the stables to help you move in and get you to the assigned stalls.

Due to prior engagements and the Memorial Day, The Pepsi Coliseum will not be available to work horses until sometime Wednesday afternoon, June 1. The large make-up ring in the West Pavilion will be available for working horses as will the covered outside ring.

The UPHA Chapter 11 Academy Club will be hosting sub sandwiches and soft drinks on Tuesday, May 31. The show’s pizza party will be Thursday, June 2 after the evening classes and the Friday evening exhibitor’s party, which will be different this year, will be after the classes Friday evening, June 3, in the West Pavilion. Coffee and donuts will be available in the West Pavilion each morning from Tuesday, May 31 to Saturday morning, June 4.

The show has had another scooter donated to be raffled for the benefit of its charity, the Indiana Children’s Wish Fund. Those wishing to purchase a ticket may check with the show office.
