Oklahoma Centennial Announces Class Additions

The Oklahoma Centennial Horse Show will be one of the first shows to feature the Elisabeth Goth Driving Challenge classes this year. The show will offer both classes for Junior Exhibitors to begin their journey to the finals in November. The Fine Harness class will be offered during the Friday evening session, and the Show Pleasure Driving class will be added to the Saturday session. 

"We’re excited to support this driving challenge and hope that this will be a continued success story for our Oklahoma show," Board Chairperson Karen Cunningham said. "In addition, we have been asked to bring back the 3-Year Old classes, and it looks like we’ll have great competition; with 3-Year Old classes for Park Pleasure, 3-Gaited and 5-Gaited being added to the Thursday morning session."

Due to popular demand, the show has also added two more Walk/Trot classes. These classes, for ages 12 and under, will both be held during the Saturday session, so the Junior Exhibitors can work around school. So now there will be a total of four Walk/Trot classes.

"It appears that the show is really going to expand in numbers this year, and we want to provide classes to the exhibitors and trainers that meet their needs on an annual basis," Cunningham said. "We want the show to be very responsive to our customers, and by adding these classes, we hope to demonstrate to the barns that we’re striving to be a show that listens and implements the suggestions provided."

The Oklahoma Centennial Horse Show will be held at the newly-renovated State Fair Park in Oklahoma City, April 9-12. Post entries are accepted. For a prize book, go to
