Spring Warm-Up Show Announces Judge



The sixth annual IASHA Spring Warm-Up, sponsored by UPHA Chapter 11 and the Indiana American Saddlebred Horse Association, will be ready to roll March 14-16 at C Bar C Expo Center in Cloverdale, Indiana. Brent Jacobs, Georgetown, KY, will judge all divisions.

One of the fastest growing shows in the Midwest, the Spring Warm-Up has become a favorite spot for exhibitors to launch their show seasons. The schedule kicks off with a Friday evening session at 7pm, March 14, concluding Sunday, March 16, with a championship performance session in the morning followed by the final academy session in the afternoon.  The nearby Motel 6 and Super 8 in Cloverdale,  plus the Inn At DePauw (Walden Inn) in Greencastle will be horse show headquarter hotels offering special rates for exhibitors.

The recently renovated C Bar C Expo is a favorite venue for exhibitors and trainers. Located only 25 minutes west of Indianapolis, this outstanding, heated, indoor show facility features 500 stalls, a 120 x 240 show arena, adjacent 120 x 200  make-up ring, excellent footing, ringside tables, concessions and vendor space all under one, enclosed roof.

The Spring Warm-Up offers complete divisions for Saddlebreds, Morgans, open pleasure, Hackney ponies and equitation, plus over 40 academy classes for beginning through advanced riders in saddle seat, hunt seat and western. The UPHA Challenge Cup classes will be back, as will the Saddle & Bridle Shatner, Pleasure Medallion and Hunter Classic qualifiers. Also returning to the schedule is a Three Gaited Park for Junior Exhibitors. The Spring Warm-Up will participate in the 2014 Hackney Adult Amateur Driving Challenge and is a member show of Tri-State, Mid-America, IASPHA, OASPHA, IHPBEA and IASHA.

Always a highlight of the show, the gala Exhibitor Party follows Saturday evening’s show. The UPHA Chapter 11 Academy Club will once again host its popular receptions for riders, instructors and parents after the academy sessions on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

Prize lists will be mailed by the end of January. Information, including prize list, schedule and entry forms, will be available at www.indianasaddlebred.com.
