SHR...News Brief

With Chris and Larry Cassenti as chairpersons and Kent Moeller as manager, the UPHA Chapter 14 Spring Premiere was again honored as the chapter’s UPHA Show Of The Year. This year’s edition will be the twenty-third and it will feature a full schedule of classes for Saddlebreds, Morgans, Hackneys, and Friesians.

Ray Krussell has been selected to judge the Saddlebred, Hackney, Equitation, and Roadster divisions, while David Earehart will handle the Morgan, Friesian, and miscellaneous sections.

Five-hundred dollar Jackpot Stakes are offered in the Open Five-Gaited, Open, Morgan English Pleasure and Open Road Pony sections with no qualifying necessary. UPHA Classics are also held for the Saddlebred, Morgan, and Hackney youngsters.

For the first time all Morgan classes at the April 20-23, 2005 show will count towards New England Morgan Horse Association (NEMHA) Year End Awards. The UPHA Spring Premiere is also affiliated with the USEF, NEHC, Ct. Horse Show Association, and the Pennsylvania Saddlebred association.

In addition to stiff competition, one of the highlights of the 2004 honor show was the revamped Exhibitor’s Party which promises to be even better this year. For more information contact Chris Cassenti via email at
