South Central Hackney Association Receives KEEP Grant


The South Central Hackney Association was recently informed that it has received a $500 grant from the Kentucky Equine Education Projects Grassroots Committee (KEEP). It is KEEP’s desire to inform the public of their mission, which is to educate Kentucky’s general public about the value of the horse industry to every citizen of the Commonwealth. As part of this outreach, the board of directors allocated $140,000 in grant funds to help local horse organizations to promote horses.

SCHA will use the $500 grant to supplement the premium money in the Garnett and Aldina Wood Memorial Junior Road Pony Championship class at the 2006 SCHA Futurity at the Alexandria Fair and Horse Show,
Alexandria, KY. The premium will now be a $1,000 class.

The Junior Road Pony Championship will be held at the 2006 Alexandria Fair and Horse Show, Sunday, September 3, 2006. All ponies may qualify by showing in two SCHA Junior Road Pony, Three-Year-Old Road Pony Futurity or Three-Year-Old Open classes at SCHA member shows during the current year.  Ponies must be four years old and under and measure 52” and under.  Owners must present copies of up-to-date American Hackney Horse Society registration papers when registering.  All owners and exhibitors must be SCHA members by June 30, 2006 in order to show in the championship class.
