2008 Paso Fino Grand National Show Generating Excitement
RELEASE: April 24, 2008
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By the Paso Fina Horse Association
This year is well under way and plans for the 2008 Paso Fino Horse Association (PFHA) Grand National show are already in the works.
"Celebracion del Paso Fino" is the theme for Nationals this year. We all gather at the shows, participate in parades and trail rides, not only to see old friends and meet new people but to celebrate this wonderful breed. It is my hope that this year and every year will be about the grace, beauty and fire of the Paso Fino.
Judges for the 2008 National Show are:
—Jorge Torres (1st Alternate if needed)
—Luis Laguna-Mimos (2nd Alternate if needed) Changes for the 2008 Show
-The Youth portion of the show will be held on Saturday and Sunday, adding an extra day to the National Show. This will hopefully decrease the number of days that these children would need to be absent from school as well as afford them the opportunity to shine in their very own "National Show."
-A pamphlet will be mailed out to each member to determine who will need a printed version of the prize list. It will be available online as always for easy downloading.
-The exhibitor party will be in the form of a "sit down" dinner complete with awards and a live band. Make plans to attend this gala on Thursday night. Support and celebrate the Amateur Owner of the Year, Hall of Fame inductees, High Point and Senior High Point winner as well as the High Point horse and Gelding of the Year.
