Dear Exhibitor:

It’s almost time for the 2013 GDHA Annual Spring Show! Are you ready? Be prepared to have some fun because we have a good show sheet this year and something for everyone. Please mark your calendars now!

You can trailer-in or stalls are available. If you’d like to arrive on Friday, you MUST let me know in advance so that you will have a stall(s) available and shavings. Please email at spiritthehorse@hotmail.com.

We will be doing early registration/sign-ins starting 7:00 P.M. so you may pick up your show packet. AND we will be having a Barn Party!/Meet-N-Greet sometime Friday night, so bring some goodies and plan to join us.

We plainly see the economy and still took a big chance by keeping our entry fees REALLY LOW THIS YEAR.

Again, the charge will be PER farm and not per horse. We are counting on everyone loading up their trailers to the max with horses and entering MORE classes!

We have also included a contribution sheet and any donation amount would be most appreciated. If you would like to sponsor a class in memory of someone, just write in what you would like said at the beginning of that class and the announcer will read it.

All DOWNLOADABLE show documents are linked below with information regarding class divisions and special instructions for certain classes. This is not only a fun show, but a learning show, so please read ALL the rules which are pretty much in line with the regular draft horse shows.

The decision to do this was in order for those wanting to attend shows such as Perry, could learn what is expected at that type level show.

I’ve included the Rules and Regulations required by Tri-State which I ask that you read thoroughly and sign as we will be held responsible, individually and as the Georgia Draft Horse Association.

We also ask that you return these along with your entry form in order to confirm you have read and understood what is required during our event. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

We will be showing in The Bess Neil Memorial Arena, which is covered making this show Rain or Shine, and Non-Refundable.

For more information about Tri-State Exhibition Center, please visit: www.tsec.org and directions are also included on the show sheet.

Again, we have worked very hard this year to allow everyone the opportunity to participate and we hope our efforts will be appreciated and all involved will have a pleasant and safe experience at the show and enjoy the day.

For more information contact Show Chair: Candy Morris: spiritthehorse@hotmail.com or call Show Co-Chair: Brittany Edgerton: 423-255-3267

Our lovely southern spring is just around the corner. Time to stop looking at the winter mud on that draft horse of yours (and that includes any draft breed, including your draft cross, draft pony, and Friesian) and start thinking about getting tuned up for this year’s draft horse show season. No better way than to load up and head to the 2013 GDHA Annual Spring Show. Classes includes halter, English & Western riding, hitch and pleasure driving, obstacle riding and driving, and some fun novelty classes for all ages that were a big hit at last year’s get-together. It doesn’t matter what level of driving or riding you are at, there’s a class to bring out the best in you and your draft horse. So, dust off that saddle, shine that harness, and let’s show some horses.

Update: 01/21/13 Candy says:  “We will be sending the class list (43 classes start time 11AM) out in February to GDHA Members first then after about 2 weeks will post publicly!”

Stay tuned for Entry Form and Class List
