UPHA Chapter 18 Announced Horse Show

UPHA Chapter 18 is hosting their annual horse show at the Virginia Horse Center in Lexington, VA on April 19-20, 2019.  Chris Carrick of Gaffney, SC will mark the judge’s card in all classes.  

The event will be held in the East Complex with performances beginning Friday evening at 6:00 PM.  Academy Classes will comprise the Saturday Morning Session and the Championship Classes will commence in the afternoon following a one hour lunch break.

The prize list noted the first class would be a $150 Add A Class and that slot has been filled with an Open Pleasure Pony Class.  The class is open to all breeds and entries will be shown under saddle at walk, trot, & canter.  The $150 Add A Class slot for Class 51 is an exact duplicate – entries will not have to qualify.

A wide variety of Saddlebred classes are offered as well as slots for road ponies shown both in harness & under saddle and hackney pleasure driving ponies.

The show is a qualifying competition for the KY State Fair Horse Show and entries will also earn points for the ASHA High Point Awards.  In addition the show is affiliated with the American Saddlebred Horse Association of VA (ASHAV), the American Saddlebred Association of the Carolinas (ASAC), the Carolina Summer Circuit and the East Tennessee Saddlebred Association (ETSA).
