Highlights of both the Platform® Shetland Pony Congress and the Platform® American Miniature Horse National Championships will be aired on two TV shows coming up this month on RFD-TV. The Platform® AMHR National Championship Show and The Platform® Shetland Pony Congress are the equivalent of the Super Bowl for Miniature Horses and Shetland Ponies. The shows attract the top small equines from throughout the U.S.
On October 14, at 4 p.m. (EST) RFD-TV will be airing the American Shetland Pony Club’s special presentation of the Platform® Shetland Pony Congress Championships. The Shetland Pony National Championship Congress took place August 1-August 6 at the Gordyville Arena in Gifford, IL. The TV show on RFD-TV will take viewers ringside as some of the nation’s top Shetland ponies battle it out for the national championship titles. The show also takes viewers behind the scenes and includes interviews with judges, trainers and competitors.
On October 21 at 4 p.m. (EST) RFD-TV will air the Platform@ American Miniature Horse Registry National Championships. This exciting broadcast will feature some of this year’s top Miniature Horses from around the country. You’ll see exclusive footage from the judge’s view, interviews with top trainers, and close-up looks at America’s top Miniature Horses. The 2007 Platform® AMHR National Championships took place September 6-15 in Tulsa, OK. Over 1,500 miniature horses competed for over $50,000 in cash and prizes. Many of the victors are featured on the TV show.
“The American Miniature Horse Registry and the American Shetland Pony Club aired two hour-long shows in 2004 with celebrity host Carson Kressley,” said ASPC Marketing Director Johnny Robb. “Since that time, we have had requests for more TV shows, so we are especially pleased to be able to bring our two largest shows to airwaves this month.”
Along with the initial airdates on October 14-October 21 RFD-TV plans to rerun the two shows again in the Spring of 2008.
