NEW SHOW SERIES FOR THOROUGHBREDS!
Attention OTTB owners in Florida and nearby states! There is some exciting news for you.
The all-new Run for the Ribbons Horse Show Series will be an exclusive Hunter/Jumper horse show series for all tattooed, registered, and identifiable Thoroughbreds. This exciting new horse show series was established to create a meaningful competitive environment, raise the demand for Thoroughbreds, and to help owners in expanding second career options for OTTB's (Off-Track Thoroughbreds)!
There will be classes ranging from In-hand for those thoroughbreds who are no longer able to work under saddle, to 3' hunter/jumper classes. They will also have for sale/adoption display classes, for owners and adoption organizations that have thoroughbreds for sale.
The first show is scheduled for Saturday, April 12, 2014 at 8am with schooling on Friday, April 11, 2014 from 1pm until dark.
There will be Classics with cash prizes. Riders and horses can qualify for the yearly Equitation finals. There will be year-end awards for each division and High Point Trainer year-end award.
