Our show is intended to encourage the breeding of ABC horses and ponies for show traits and vanities.
Shows are held weekly, with 14 horse breeds featured each week. Breeds are presented in alphabetical order throughout the 5-week show cycle.
There will also be three weekly Pony divisions, divided into breeds A-E, F-K and L-Z.
Registration for each weekly show opens Sunday at 12 noon SLT and closes Wednesday at 12 noon SLT.
Each breed will have a designated display stand with room for 10 horses and ponies. One entry per stand is allowed. There is no other limit to the number of entries an owner is allowed.
A horse or pony must be at least 3 days old at the time it is registered. Pets are allowed, Mares who either have a foal or are expecting during show week may be entered, however, the foal may not be substituted for the mare during the entry process.
Judging will be conducted by a panel of 3 judges who will work independently of each other. The final results will be determined by totaling the judges’ scores for each horse or pony.
There will be a trophy and ribbon for each Best of Breed winner. Second and third place finishers will also receive ribbons.
A weekly awards presentation will be held at the undergrounds arena each Saturday at 2 pm SLT. All Best of Breed winners will be placed on the arena display stand by their owners or designated proxies at this time. If a winning horse or pony is not available for showing, it will be replaced by the second place finisher in the appropriate category.
A free raffle of 15 donated show quality horses will be held following the awards presentation.
We appreciate the support our show has received from ABC breeders since its inception in 2019!
