Western Pleasure Added to Louisville in 2006


The Kentucky State Fair World's Championship Horse Show will host an Invitational Western Country Pleasure class comprised of a qualifying class and a championship. Sixteen horses with eight horses in reserve will be invited to compete in the Invitational. These horses will be chosen based upon the USEF point system used for the Horse of the Year Award. All Saddlebred horses competing in Western Country Pleasure classes at USEF recognized shows will be eligible for consideration, not just those registered with the USEF Horse of the Year program.


The American Saddlebred Horse Association will verify and confirm all results and point totals on behalf of the Kentucky State Fair World's Championship Horse Show. For purposes of this 2006 show, the qualifying period of July 3, 2005 to December 31, 2005, and eight more horses from the second qualifying period from January 1, 2006 to July 2, 2006. An additional eight horses will be held in reserve to take the place of any of the 16 who choose not to accept the invitation to compete.


The Kentucky State Fair Board reserves the right to resolve any dispute as to the accuracy of the point total used to determine which horses are deemed eligible to complete in the Inaugural Western Country Pleasure Invitational. The qualifying class will be held during the Wednesday afternoon session, and the championship will take place either in the Friday afternoon or evening session.

Beginning in May, all information concerning the Kentucky State Fair World's Championship Horse Show can be accessed on the Kentucky State Fair Web site,
