Southern Saddlebred Announces Additions to the 2013 Shows and Sales

Southern Saddlebred Announces Additions to the 2013 Shows & Sales

Southern Saddlebred Sales, Inc. is gearing up for their 2013 events at the Tennessee Miller Coliseum in Murfreesboro TN. 

The Spring Fling Horse Show and Spring Sale will be held April 25 – 27.  The prize list is available now at and will be distributed at the ASHA convention and mailed by mid-February.  Kristen Cater from Dunbarton, NH will mark the cards at the 3-day show, managed by Scarlett Mattson.   Building on the tremendous success of the 2012 fall show, the Spring Fling will be a great place to make your season debut with classes for new riders and new teams.  If you have a special class need, there are 4 “Add-A-Class” opportunities and one “Add-A-Championship.”  These classes require a sponsorship and are available on a first come, first serve basis.  Academy classes have also been added to the schedule, with the WTC division exhibiting Friday late afternoon preceding the regular show, and the WT division scheduled for Saturday afternoon.  “We hope that the Academy riders will enjoy being a part of our evening’s activities and that those families will stay and enjoy the regular horse show,” said Jackie Hale, show chairman.  Live entertainment at the Friday night exhibitor party will feature an up-and-coming Nashville talent, with a full bar and restaurant in The Miller Club all weekend.

New this year for Southern Saddlebred’s Spring and Fall Sales is the publication of the sale catalog as an E-Book.  In addition to each entry being featured on the website, a sale catalog will once again be printed and mailed upon request.  But weeks before it will be back from the printer, it will be available not only as a PDF download, but as an E-Book, viewable on any tablet or smartphone.  “This is yet another way to get the catalog distributed to a wider audience in an environmentally conservative manner,” said Hale.  “Our spring sale entries don’t close until March 19th, giving people as late a closing date as possible.”

One of the most talked-about new shows of 2012 was the Southern Saddlebred Fall Finale, and this year’s show, October 17 – 19, promises to be even better.  Judged by Sandy Currier of Bellview, TX, the event kicks of with a Welcome Reception hosted by Marsha De Arriaga at Kix Brook’s Arrington Vineyards on Wednesday night. 

Mark your calendars and plan to start your season, and end your season with Southern Saddlebred!  Visit for more information, contact Scarlett Mattson at 270-547-8664 to receive a prize list, or James and Jackie Hale at 205-669-6649 for information regarding the Spring Sale.
