"We're very excited to invite Arabians, Morgans, Western, and Open Show English Horses to the National Horse Show Indoor Championships," stated manager Bob Bell. "And, we are very pleased to offer these competitors a chance to show under some of the finest officials in their disciplines."

Officiating in the Morgan division will be Richard Boule of Ocala, FL, James Lowry of Seymour, IL, and Ann E. Slomkowski of Northville, MI. Earlier this year, Boule judged the Delmarva Summer Classic and the Vermont Spring Classic. In 2002, Lowry officiated at the Key Classic Benefit Morgan Horse Show and the Mid Atlantic Morgan Horse Show. In 2002, Slomkowski judged the U.S. Saddle Seat World Cup Trials and the Citrus Cup Regional.

Slomkowski, Kent Kramer of LaCanada, CA, and Larry Lewis will judge the Western classes.
