Twin Rivers Show Prepares for Festive Event

DELAWARE, Ohio – Organizers are putting the finishing touches on the 41st annual Twin Rivers Benefit Horse Show, which returns to the historic Delaware County Fairgrounds June 30, July 1-2. This popular show offers a full schedule of classes for American Saddlebreds, Morgans, Hackneys, Parade, Equitation, Open English Pleasure and Open Pleasure Driving.

Recognized by Tri-State Horse Shows Association, OASHA, Interstate Horse Shows, Ohio Morgan, KYOVA, IASHA, OASPHA and Central Kentucky Horse Shows Association, the show is a qualifying event for the 2011 Kentucky State Fair in Pleasure and Park as well as a member of the Equine Services Cup Roadster Pony Cup series. The show also offers a full set of classes for the AHHS Foundation Adult Driving Challenge. Judging all events will be Bret Day, Versailles, Kentucky.

The surprise "To Be Announced" classes in this year’s schedule include Class 37, ASB Show Pleasure Driving Junior Exhibitor, and Class 49, Hackney Pony Park Pleasure Driving.

Twin Rivers is a great favorite among exhibitors for its relaxed atmosphere, excellent facilities, the holiday weekend timing and its location in the charming college town of Delaware, which is located just north of Columbus, Ohio. The Friday night Exhibitor Party is always a huge hit and will once again feature a silent auction and entertainment.

Show management expects a large turn-out in 2011, as the dates this year allow for a full week between Twin Rivers and the start of Lexington Junior League.

More information, along with the prize list and entry forms, is available online at; or contact Leslie Backus, (740) 815-3189; or Judy Peters, (614) 402-1260.
