Revitalized 2009 Children’s Benefit Horse Show Opens July 23

UPHA Chapter 15 is proud to announce major enhancements to the 20th edition of its Children’s Benefit Horse Show.

This year Chapter 15 will welcome exhibitors to a beautiful new venue for this well-loved show: the Gloucester County DREAM Park in Logan Township, New Jersey, just across the river from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

This premiere facility boasts a 150’ x 300’ climate-controlled indoor arena, a large, covered outdoor warm-up ring and 10’ x 10’ rubber-matted stalls. In addition to these amenities, the park maintains RV parking (with electrical hook-up only) and designated trailer parking. Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn Select and Residence Inn by Marriott hotels are conveniently located nearby.

The newly designed schedule for this show includes USEF-rated classes for Saddlebreds, Hackneys, Roadsters, Morgans, Friesians and Equitation. "Opportunity" and Academy divisions are offered as well. Exhibitors will appreciate the condensed format featuring both day and evening sessions, beginning Thursday, July 23 at 10:00 a.m. and ending Saturday evening, July 25 with the 5-Gaited Open Championship.

The show will remain the venue for the Mid-Atlantic Summer Saddle Seat Event and will also be a qualifying show for the exciting new incentive program, the Equine Roadster Cup.

Armon Effinger (Saddlebreds, Hackneys and Roadsters) and Cary Bartz (Morgan, Friesian, Equitation, Opportunity and Academy) share the judging duties this year.
