Tanbark Cavalcade of Roses Horse Show Announces Exciting New New Features for 2006


The Tanbark Cavalcade of Roses Horse Show, Minnesota’s largest and most competitive Saddlebred show, will be held June 28-July 1, 2006, at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in St. Paul. Building on its 52-year history, the show is offering several new features this year.


·              A-rated by the USEF, so horses can earn points toward a CH.


·              Trainers can win six $100 cash awards. Trainers are eligible for drawings for the cash awards based on the number of horses they bring to the show.


·              A free tack stall will be offered to trainers who enter at least five horses and haven’t been to Tanbark since 2003.


·              A presentation of horses for sale will be held during the show.


Judging all classes will be Steve Allred, Kelly Freeman and Liz McBride-Jones.


Tanbark offers a complete schedule of 130 classes for Saddlebreds, Hackney ponies and equitation, including UPHA Classics, qualifying classes for all the equitation finals and academy classes.  The Adult Show Pleasure Stake has been designated a Grand National class.


Tanbark will continue its tradition of providing outstanding exhibitor hospitality, daily parties and one of the finest center ring displays anywhere. New this year are baskets of goodies delivered to the box seat areas and a new food service in the Coliseum serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with a wider variety of items, including many healthy choices. In keeping with the show’s “rose” theme, all winners get a rose bouquet with their trophy.


Exhibitors can browse the vendor area on the grounds, featuring leather clothing, designer jewelry and purses, horse-related clothing and equine supplies. Nearby attractions include the Mall of America, IKEA, the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory, a golf course and many shopping venues.


Videography will be by Traces CT Limited.


Show managers are Sally Snyder Tesch and Doug Lindstrom.  Premium books will be mailed in April.


Tanbark is approved by the United States Equestrian Federation, Tri-State Horseman’s Association, Minnesota Saddlebred Horse Association, Mid-America Horse Shows Association, Iowa Horse Shows Association, American Saddlebred of Wisconsin, and American Hackney Horse Society.
