The 49th edition of the Morgan Gold Cup Regional Horse Show is less than two months away! Plans are heating up for a great week including the Friday night United Professional Horsemen’s Association (UPHA) Pink Ribbon events.
In 2007, UPHA launched the Pink Ribbon campaign in an effort to “raise much-needed funds for breast cancer research, awareness, and treatment.” To date more then thirty horse shows across the country have participated and over $100,000 has already been raised, the goal for 2009 is set for another $100,000.
Gold Cup is honored to be a part of this ground-breaking program and has designated the English Pleasure Ladies Championship as the UPHA Pink Ribbon Class. This class will kick off the Friday evening session while a progressive isle party will finish off the night in style. Last year’s class was won by Elizabeth Burick and Bad Company and raised $1,000 for the important cause of breast cancer research.
Steve Davis, Mike Carpenter and Susan Kolstad are slated to judge the June 16-20, 2009 event that will be held at the Champion’s Center in Springfield, Ohio.
