UPHA Chapter 5 Horse Show Planning

LEXINGTON, KY – The UPHA Chapter V Horse Show has an exciting 2011 show planned to be held May 11 – 14 in Hale Arena at the American Royal Complex in Kansas City, Missouri. The show continues to grow after the move from Columbia to Kansas City in 2009 and looks forward to even more stables being included for 2011.

On Saturday night the Three Gaited Open Jackpot will be featured this year as an American Saddlebred Registry Grand National Class. Clark Clouse of Versailles, Kentucky has been selected to judge classes in all divisions including American Saddlebred, Hackney, Roadster, Morgan and Saddle Seat Equitation. New this year will be classes for United Mountain Horses which Mr. Clark will judge as well with Margaret Biggs marking the cards for the Academy Classes. Howie Schatzberg of Cave Creek, Arizona will serve as photographer and Sharyhill Shooters will be on hand to record rides for everyone who is interested.

UPHA Chapter V Horse Show will also be part of the new incentive program USEF is offering for the Morgan and Saddlebred Divisions. This program will offer an annual incentive award of $1000 given to the owners of the top horse that competes at USEF competitions. All classes in each Division/Section (not just classes offered for Horse of the Year Award; exception: Equitation) will count toward points for this award.

Plans are underway for parties each evening after the show and the show committee works hard to produce an environment with a friendly, cheerful setting to make this a really fun event.
