CALENDAR the 16th Annual IDHSNA Show

IN KENTUCKY this year!

We are pleased to announce that the IDHSNA 2012 Annual Horse Show will be held at Circle Bar C Ranch in La Grange, KY on Thursday, September 13th through Saturday, September 15th, 2012.

Watch IDHSNA website for details & Prize List!

The survey we sent out about possible show locations indicated that this relatively central location would have the highest attendance, and the broadest representation from the various regions of the IDHSNA. So plan on coming, bring your horses, and help us celebrate the wonderful Irish Draught and Irish Draught Sport Horse. You’ll have the opportunity to meet members from all across the country.

The first group of competitions, Dressage classes, will be held on Thursday afternoon, starting at 1:00 pm. Hunter classes and FEH will be on Friday, while Jumpers and In-hand classes will be on Saturday. We hope this arrangement will allow added flexibility in making travel plans. Please note that the Annual General Meeting will be held Friday evening at 8:00 pm, after a potluck dinner.

We are considering adding a new feature to the show – an auction of member’s horses for sale. This would take place on Sunday the 16th, and be conducted by a licensed auctioneer. Sellers would be able to set a reserve price, would not be bound to the sale, and a veterinarian would be available on site for exams. Please contact Steve Kennedy at (678) 234-4622 or Fleur Bryan at (502) 649-2037 and let us know if you’d be interested in participating in this. We also want to know how many horses will be brought to the show for inspections, so get your applications in, or contact Priscilla Menard at (859) 455-8090.

Three (3) local hotels have agreed to provide a discounted rate for members attending the show. All hotels are located six miles from the show facility, and there are several more in the northeast section of Louisville, twenty-two miles away. We look forward to seeing you in Kentucky in September!
