Fun Classes, Academy Classes, Exhibitors Dinner and more!

Less than two weeks till we start the 2013 GAHA Summer Classic! We're very excited about our show this year! Lots of fun things going on and if the weather holds out, we'll see cooler than normal temps for August! As we have done in the past few years, we are cordoning off part of the indoor arena on the in gate side as a warm up area to get folks out of the weather. And the Horse Park has also installed Big Ass fans in the covered arena!

We have the full range of classes for Main Ring, Dressage, Sport Horse and Hunter Jumper. And a big hit from last year….FUN CLASSES return this year with more added. You don't want to miss the barn relay class! For our halter exhibitors, please don't forget the Grand Champion Mare and Stallion classes on Saturday evening! A $500 prize, sponsored by Talaria Farms will be awarded to each. Thank you Allison Mehta and Curt Westley for your generous support! We are proud to have you back at our show.

We have, for the first time, Straight Egyptian classes in both halter and performance. We think this adds a lot to our show and look forward to seeing exhibitors we haven't seen in a while due to the date conflict with The Event. And thank you to our sister club, the Alabama Arabian Horse Association and Kimberly Douglas from Markel, for the inspiration and help in bringing them to our show. We also want to thank The Pyramid Society. They have been extremely supportive and have done tons of promotion for our show within their organization.

Members of The Pyramid Society are hosting a Wine & Cheese Social on Friday, August 9th, in between the afternoon & evening classes in the Old Tack Store next to the arena. Come make new friends; learn more about The Pyramid Society; and enter a free raffle to win a set of three sought after Straight Egyptian Reference Handbooks—Volumes X, XI, and XII. These books showcase Straight Egyptian Horses from around the world and contain valuable historical information any Arabian horse lover would enjoy having. So come on by for a visit and share some refreshments with The Pyramid Society Members.

Our Exhibitors Dinner will be Saturday evening and don't forget our Silent Auction Benefiting Iron Hearts Equine Therapeutic program. We are still accepting donations and keep in mind that they are tax Deductible. 100% of the proceeds will be given to Iron Hearts. Patron Packages and Box Seats are still available so book those soon.

Look forward to seeing you all at the show!  -- Kathy Hedgepeth
