On Saturday April 27th we will be having our first All Thoroughbred Horse Show at the historic Will Rogers Coliseum in Fort Worth, Tx. The objective for this show is to promote the Retired Racehorse for a post racing career as well as all Thoroughbreds as productive, useful horses in all aspects of riding.
We are offering many jumping, pleasure, and in hand classes this year and hope to expand next year with dressage and speed events.
First of it's kind Companion Horse Class
The Companion Class will showcase the unridable retired racehorse as a family friendly horse and all old injuries, soundness issues, and conformation will be 'overlooked' and the horse will be judged on his appearance, his manners, and the handlers showmanship.
We will be offering a Special Prize for the winner of the Companion Class and hope everyone with a special retired racehorse will join us for the show.
We hope other thoroughbred shows we recognize these special people who take these otherwise unwanted horses into their families and will begin to hold their own Companion Classes around the country.
We are looking for a 'BIG SPONSOR' for this Class. We want to offer a really 'SPECIAL' prize for the special people that take these hard to place horses into their lives for the sole purpose of caring for them all of their days. If you or your company is interested in sponsoring this class please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
