Jackson schedule is now available

The schedule for the 62nd National Appaloosa Show and 2009 World Championship Appaloosa Youth Show is now posted on the appaloosa.com website – go the the National Show page and you’ll find it. Just a reminder, the National Show (Open and Non-Pro events) will be held the first week and the Youth show is the second week. There is a youth cutting class on Saturday the 27th and assorted AYA activities Sunday (28th) afternoon before the full slate of youth classes gets started on Monday the 29th.

Show dates for the 2009 National Show/World Youth Show in Jackson, MS are:

June 22 – 29, 2009 – 62nd National Championship Appaloosa Show
June 29 – July 4 – World Championship Appaloosa Youth Show

The decision to hold the National Show week to be followed by the Youth Show was made due to conflicts that many of our youth competitors who live in the northeast had with the previous format. Later dates for school dismissal combined with mandatory state testing requirements eliminated many youth members from competition at the 2008 show. For that reason, the board of directors’ show committee voted to make this scheduling change for 2009 and 2010. This will be reconsidered for the 2011 show as show dates for that year may change.

Please contact the ApHC Performance Department at 208.882.5578 ext. 400 with any questions or concerns that you may have.

Special events of note include the 2008 Year-End Awards Banquet on Saturday June 21st, a Youth Horse Judging Contest on Friday June 26th and a benefit performance that evening, followed by a “Moonlight Madness” sale in the Trade Mart. Sunday June 28th is the Youth Foundation Speech Contest and AYA meetings. The Youth Year-End Awards Banquet will be Monday evening June 29th. Stay tuned for more details.
