The International at Syracuse Is “A Step Above The Rest” SYRACUSE, NY - The 39th annual International at Syracuse Horse Show was held at the New York State Fairgrounds on June 27-30 . This year’s show featured UPHA classes, a Grand National Park Pleasure Open Championship, and Equine Roadster Cup class, and a USEF Cup competition. Show Manager Naomi Blumenthal was quoted as saying, “Thank you to everyone who came and supported our show! We hope you all had a great time and will return next year for the 40th Syracuse International .Thank you to our many sponsors. Your support and generosity makes us “a step above” the rest! Thank you to the hard working ASHANY show committee for all your hard work and dedication - you are greatly appreciated!” As in the past Syracuse had no shortage of hospitality beginning with a “Take-A Break” party sponsored by Cater Stables and Scottfield Stables on Tuesday Night. On hand were hotdogs, salt potatoes, and cool beverages to kick off the show. “Bistro Night” on Wednesday night featured a wine and cheese party sponsored by Larga Winery and Wrighthall Stables and finger foods compliments of the Syracuse International Horse Show. Friday Night welcomed exhibitors to a Bar-B-Que with a DJ on hand compliments of Reindance Stables, Little Lexington, and Daur Mar Manor Stables. A Ice Cream Sundae party followed with the fixins for this event sponsored by Victory Lane Stables. Throughout the show Siren Song Stable and owners Dr Scott and Annika Bruggeworth made sure exhibitors stayed refreshed by hosting a hospitality room with fresh fruit, muffins, and doughnuts for the mornings and popcorn, snacks, and beverages in the afternoons. Judges for this year event were Kent Swall for the Saddlebred, Roadsters, and Friesians. Cindy Mugnier was the judge for the Morgan, Saddleseat Equitation, open Divisions, and Academy. The complete results can be seen on our free website, www.showringtimes.com . Page 9

Roanoke Valley Horse Show Draws Large Numbers By Samantha Huff
ROANOKE, VA- The 41st Annual Roanoke Valley Horse Show took place at Salem Civic Center June 18-23. Each year the RVHS donates profits to organizations in the area. RVHS draws in exhibitors and trainers from all over. More than 800 horses competed in this year’s event. Hunter, Jumper, Racking, Roadster, Saddlebred & Western divisions were filled with exciting competition. Melissa Moore was this year’s Saddlebred judge and she had some very hard decisions to make as every class was exciting and filled with talent. Back this year was the Arabian classes. It’s been seventeen years since Arabians have showed in Roanoke. Hopefully that division continues to grow and continue to draw in more horses. RVHS always shows great hospitality and this year was no different. The Welcome Wagon provided cool drinks on wheels throughout the stable area. Daily breakfast was served at the Hospitality Tent. A Saddlebred Brunch was held on Thursday at the Roanoke Country Club. I look forward to see what they have to offer next year. If next year’s competition is anything like this year, I can’t wait. Here’s to an even better 2013.

Charlotte Charity Classic
20th Anniversary of the Charlotte Charity Classic
Blazing heat, over 100 degrees each day, did not stop exhibitors or horses from giving their all at the 20th anniversary of the Charlotte Charity Classic Horse Show in Charlotte, NC.
the trainer at Dream View, was elated to see her riders do so well! Everyone works so hard to prepare for these shows, and it is nice to see the hard work pay off!
One of the best stories during the show came out of Boones’ Farm and Stables, where Jan Parks took first place in the Academy Show Rider WTC Championship Count. Jan recently started riding again after a thirty-two year absence from showing. She showed with Betsy Boone as a young girl, and Betsy has encouraged her to get back in the saddle, and in the show ring!
Although the Charlotte Charity Classic was on the smaller side this year, especially due to the heat, there was nothing small about the smiles of exhibitors leaving the arena! As with every other Saddlebred show, all exhibitors and horses were exceptional!
Cortni Henderson, from Dream View Stables in Huntersville, NC also came out a big winner, taking home four blue ribbons; a first in her riding career. One of Dream View’s star saddlebred’s, Star’s Rambo also showed big during the weekend! The 25 year old gelding rode with elegance and grace, and ended the show with four blue ribbons as well! Stephanie Leidenheimer Milloux,
A quick note to end: The Charlotte Charity Classic has been held at Latta Equestrian Center for several years. Latta is in the works of getting a covered arena for their facility which would greatly enhance the showing experience for all groups of riders. Please consider taking out an ad with the Show Ring Times to benefit the covered arena at Latta. I will be donating all of my commissions from ads to the arena fund through the end of August! If you have any questions, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Finest of the Fair – Shelbyville Fair, That Is By Donna Nabors Another one of Kentucky’s premier fairs and horse shows took place in Shelbyville the third week in June, kicking off some serious competition preparing for the third week in August. There were entries from quite a number of distant owners including such locales as California, Arizona and Florida. With fresh faces in the show ring, it was obvious that trainers, owners, riders and drivers were looking ahead to the World Championships in Louisville.
and his other three entries picking up red ribbons. From Kim Crumplers four entries, two were winners: Delightful Facination won the Three Gaited Western Country Pleasure class and Rhondo took the Three Gaited Novice Show Pleasure blue ribbon. Brian Chappell was batting two for three, winning the Three Gaited Novice with Roselane’s Kiss Me All Over and the Open Five Gaited Stakes with Callaway’s Mr. Nice Guy. Larry Hodge almost couldn’t be stopped. He sent out five entries and came away with wins in the Amateur Three Gaited Park class with Phind the Treasure, the Jr. Exhibitor Five Gaited class with Cheerful Memories and the Jr. Park Pleasure class as well as the Stake class with Mr. Bling. Lindsay Lavery’s five entries garnered wins in the Amateur Park Pleasure class with Harlem’s Spark, the Amateur Fine Harness class with Dances On Air, and the Amateur Hackney Pony class with CH Classical Dancer. With four out of his six entries adding blue ribbons to their collections, Jim Lowry was quite proud of Valpariso in the Roadster to Bike preliminary and Stake classes, Major Buck in the Jr. Exhibitor Show Pleasure Driving class, and Double or Nuttin’ in the Show Pleasure Driving Championship.
Neil Visser came to do serious business and of his 13 entries that left the ring with a ribbon, six were of the blue color. Nuttin’ But the Best won the Five Gaited Novice, Callaway’s Nachelle won the Park Pleasure Open class, Kalarama’s Blue Mac bested the competition in the Ladies Three Gaited class, CH It’s Good Karma took the Country Pleasure Driving class, Blue Bikini won the Three Gaited Park Championship and the Five Gaited Show Pleasure Stake class was won by Simbara’s Cup of Sugar. Steve and Tiffany Wheeler’s efforts were one of the best when they won one class with Mountain Glen in the Five Gaited Three Year Old class and their other four en- Rob Byers 10 ribbon winners included four firsts’ thanks to Negatries all gathered second places. Ed Bennett did just as well, having tive Image in the Adult Three Gaited Country Pleasure class and the Unaulata’s Thriller take first in the Three Gaited Two Year Old class Championship class, Off the Record in the Park Pleasure Three Year Page 28
Shelbyville Fair Old class and Got Sox Appeal in the Adult Three Gaited Show Pleasure Championship. Maureen Lydon Campbell’s five entries picked up wins in the Hackney Pony Open with Heartland Globe Trotter, the Harness Pony Open with Front Page News and the Jr. Exhibitor Roadster Pony class with Regal’s Amigo LF. Chris Reiser’s percentages were admirable, as his four entries brought back blue ribbons with Our Fallen Angle in both the Jr. Exhibitor Three Gaited Country Pleasure class and Championship class and Miss Believe in the Saddle Seat 17 and Under class. Gene and Annalize Van der Walt had success with their four ribbon earners, three of which were placed first in their classes: The Rumba in the Three Gaited Park class, Catherine of Aragorn in the Two Year Old Fine Harness class and Ringo’s Mega Buck in the Three Gaited Three Year Old class. Debbie Foley wasn’t at the show to mess around, because of her six placed entries, five took the top honors, and those included No Fear winning both the Jr. Exhibitor Five Gaited Show Pleasure and Stakes classes, Heartland Painted Creation winning both the Roadster Pony Open and Championship and The Cover Story winning the Jr. Five Gaited class. No doubt, things other than the weather are heating up in Kentucky.

LAWRENCEBURG FAIR AND HORSE SHOW 2012
By Donna Nabors
ne of the bastions of Kentucky horse shows is the Lawrenceburg Fair and Horse Show. Traditions run deep in this arena, with many World Champion designations getting their start at this storied location. The second oldest fair and horse show in Kentucky, one would be hardpressed not to find die-hard Saddlebred show horse people recounting many fond memories of days gone by. The 2012 fair and horse show offered a variety of classes over the five day event, and the weather couldn’t have been hotter. With temperatures cresting in the triple digits more than once during the week, horses and riders were grateful for any respite the nighttime classes could offer. Luckily the humidity was non-existant, so the threat of heat strokes for both human and animals was minimal compared to what competitors could face in a couple of weeks at The Red Mile. As usual, the pleasure classes, be it five gaited, three gaited, country, driving or western, seemd to draw the most interest.

Lexington Junior League Charity Horse Show
(Compliments of Lexington Junior League)
In 1936, the ladies of the Junior League of Lexington were giving teas, having
chain bridge parties, holding folly performances… doing just about anything that was both tasteful and legal to make a nickel to support their community work programs during the depression. Most of these fundraisers only made about $900 which didn’t go very far in a time when people where in such desperate need of help. The league president at the time, Mrs. James B. (Marie) Kittrell, got it in her mind there had to be a better way to make money. She thought a horse show would be the perfect ﬁt for the Horse Capital of the World. Many local businessmen and League members’ husbands told the ladies that it was too expensive and that the Lexington Jr. League was too small of an organization Page 37

to handle hosting a horse show. The operating budget was only $500 and the rest was up to the league member’s hard work. However, with the guidance of local bloodstock agent and horseman, W. Jeﬀerson Davis, the show’s ﬁrst manager, the ladies of the Jr. League were up to the task. The show opened July 22, 1937 with a crowd of 5,000 people, ten thousand dollars in prize money and 216 horses’ from16 states. After all the bills were paid, everyone was shocked to learn they made roughly around $5,500.00 on the ﬁrst show. With unanimous approval of the members, the League decided to host a second Show the next year. And thus, the tradition was born! Now, seventy-ﬁve years later, the Lexington Junior League Charity Horse Show is still a prestigious event with regular attendance of around 30,000 people each year and attracts nationally renowned competitors. In fact, the Lexington Jr. League Charity Horse Show is the largest outdoor show for the American Saddlebred in the world. The Show has the honor of being the ﬁrst leg of the Saddlebred Triple Crown, and has generated millions of dollars for charitable and civic organizations in Central Kentucky, and has an impressive yearly economic impact on the local community.
