UPHA Chapter 10 Liberty Horse Show Series News




UPHA Chapter 10 will be hosting its 2006 Liberty “B” Horse Show Series on April 29 – 30 and October 7 – 8, to be held at The Ledges Sporting Horse Complex in
Roscoe, IL. Judging the spring show will be accomplished trainer Julie Anne Wroble; fall judging responsibilities will be carried out by the noted Ellen Beard Arnold. In addition to its regular slate of “B” performance and equitation classes, and Academy classes, each show this year will be offering $2,500 in scholarships to UPHA Junior members. The fall show will also offer two special competitions: the 2006 ASIYP Competition, and the $1,500 Challenge Class.

Returning to the show series in 2006 is the ASIYP (American Saddlebred International Youth Program) Competition. It requires youth competitors to participate in a minimum of 6 required activities: Showmanship at Halter (a newly-designated ASHA Youth Program), Junior Judging, Horsemanship, Pattern Class, Written Multiple Choice Test and Hippology - this involves 10 different stations that challenge the participant’s knowledge in a wide variety of equine topics, including the history of the American Saddlebred, equine care, conformation and general equine knowledge. Individual and team awards are provided. Ribbons will be awarded to the Top 10 individual winners in each age division, with the top winner in each age division also receiving $100 in prize money. Both suited and academy riders are eligible to compete. Details on the ASIYP program and study packets are available from Huntoon Stables at (630) 844-3533.

The horse show committee is very excited to announce that the $1,500 Challenge Class, sponsored by Kay Richardson and Jennifer Richardson Del Bosque, will be offered at its fall show for the first time. This is a combination class for the suited Saddle Seat rider, requiring participants to compete in Showmanship at Halter, Junior Judging and The Challenge Class, which is based on Horsemanship. Scores for the 3 required competitions will be combined to determine the Top 6 winners. Cash awards will be provided to the Top 6; the top point winner will also receive the Waterford “Spirit of America” trophy. Participants must be ASHA junior members, and are required to qualify for the competition by participating in 2 Showmanship at Halter classes and 2 Junior Judging competitions prior to 9/27/06 (a Pleasure Driving class may be substituted for one Showmanship or Junior Judging competition for qualification purposes only). Details on the $1,500 Challenge Class may be obtained from Kay Richardson at (309) 275-8321.

The 2006 Liberty Horse Show Series, with its relaxing format of two day shows, offers an ample variety of classes for all participants. This year’s added classes provide significant incentives for young riders to practice and develop their overall equestrian skills and knowledge. For more information, or to obtain a prize list and entry forms, please contact Bonnie Kittredge, Show Manager, at (815) 477-2740.
