AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By Brice Carr
The Mid-America Mane Event is set to take place beginning Thursday, October 22, through Sunday, October 25. The event will host the American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA) Regional Championships for the region, as well as Finals for Good Hands and Pleasure Olympics, along with a full schedule of performance classes at the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield.
The facilities available at the venue are highly regarded by many exhibitors. The Coliseum’s banked oval arena and the three warm-up rings (two indoor arenas plus a huge covered arena with a 50’ round pen), are all next to the Coliseum in-gate, available to exhibitors 24/7. The facility also provides quality stabling.
Mane Event provides a wide range of classes for Saddlebreds (performance, park, pleasure), road horses (bike, under saddle), Hackney Ponies (harness, roadster, pleasure, with all Hackney wins earning triple points from USEF) and equitation (saddle seat, pleasure, adult, walk/trot).
Michael Craghead, Fran Crumpler and Tom Sworm will judge all divisions. A Mane Event entry booklet is available online at the show website at www.midamericahorseshow.org
