UPHA Five-Gaited Horsemanship Finals

If you show a 5-gaited horse, whether it is in pleasure or open, you may be qualified for the UPHA FIVE-GAITED HORSEMANSHIP FINALS to be held at the All American Classic Horse Show.


Effective in 2008 the qualification for the UPHA FIVE-GAITED HORSEMANSHIP FINALS has been revised.  To qualify, riders must compete and be judged in a minimum of one UPHA Five-Gaited Horsemanship qualifying class or any one class within the 5-Gaited sections (open or pleasure) during the qualifying season.  A win in a qualifying class does not eliminate the rider from further competition in that qualifying season.  Show managers may request permission for holding the UPHA 5-Gaited Horsemanship class by contacting the UPHA office, 4059 Iron Works Parkway Suite  #2, Lexington, KY 40511 or by phone at (859) 231-5070.


So join us at the All American Horse Classic and show off your horsemanship skills. Be a part in the new UPHA FIVE-GAITED HORSEMANSHIP FINALS.
