Second Annual UPHA Chapter One Horse Show To Be Held in May

Following it's highly successful inaugural show in 2003, the 2004 UPHA Chapter One Horse Show will be held in Woodside, Calif., May 14-16. Last year's show was voted as the UPHA Chapter Honor Show. The judge for this year's show is Jack Nevitt, Simpsonville, Ky. The show will be USEF "A" rated for American Saddlebreds, and in addition it has been designated by USEF as a regional triple point show for the Hackney and Roadster divisions. New for 2004 are the UPHA Classics in the five-gaited, three-gaited, fine harness and park pleasure divisions. A junior/limit three-gaited park class and the ASHA Foundation Youth Driving Challenge offering fine harness and pleasure driving classes have also been added. A trainers purse has been added to 13 classes in this year's schedule, providing additional prize money to the trainers themselves. Details for the trainers purse and the eligible classes are available in the prize list.

"The chapters professional horseman have joined forces to host a competitive three-day show. With many special touches, this event combines a relaxed show schedule in a picturesque setting. The fact that we do not offer evening classes allows everyone time to socialize, enjoy the wonderful restaurants and get caught up on the happenings of the show horse world," said manager Peter Fenton.

Once again this year the show's charity is Pets in Need, the California Equine Foundation which is a 501c "3" organization where all donations are tax deductible. If you would like to contribute to this cause please contact Jennifer Dixon at 650-322-6700 ext. 3#. The show offers a complimentary breakfast every morning. The Saturday afternoon wine tasting was a huge success last year and will be better than ever in 2004. Plans are still in the works for a demonstration of agility dogs and as always a fun-filled dog class or two is a possibility.

The host hotel is the four-star Stanford Park Hotel; when making reservations please mention "California Equine Foundation" Group Code # 305346. Call toll free 800-368-2468. The reservation deadline is April 26, 2004. .
