AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By Jessica Fisher
The American Saddle Horse Breeders Futurity of Wisconsin announced that it will once again host the American Saddlebred Horse Association’s National Pleasure Equitation Championship. The national championship attracts exhibitors from across the United States and is a “must do” for the most accomplished pleasure equitation competitors. The competition includes rail work followed by a workout. Competitors are scored using a numerical scale by each of the three judges. Scores for rail work and the workout portions of the competition are combined. Prize medals and ribbons are awarded. The top three competitors receive scholarships totaling $5,000 to help with their future education needs.
The Wisconsin Futurity Horse Festival will be held on the Alliant Energy Center grounds in Madison, WI. Show dates are September 17-21. The horse festival offers futurity classes and a complete schedule of performance, pleasure, and equitation classes. Spectators are always welcome. Horse show classes are held indoors in the coliseum with comfortable theatre style seating. Indoor and outdoor rings are available for working or warming up horses in addition to the coliseum. The Festival and individual barns host nightly exhibitors’ parties; and, a very well prepared brunch will be served after the Limited Breeders’ Weanling Championship on Sunday morning.
