Zone 5 Horsemanship Class and $10,000 Scholarship
Reminder for all Zone 5 Juniors! The Zone 5 Horsemanship Class will be held again during the Kentucky National Horse Show. The class will be held on Friday evening, September 28 and can be entered by Zone 5 members instead of, but not in addition to, the Maclay regional warm-up. Pledges have been made by several major vendors for great prizes. As in the past, 25% will be based on a written test (given mid-day September 28) based on George Morris' book "Hunter Seat Equitation", 25% on the flat phase and 50% on the jumping phase. Look for more details in our advertisement in the Kentucky National prize list and on the USHJA website.
Also, if you are a high school senior, it is not too late to apply for the 2007 Zone 5 Scholarship. $10,000.00 will be awarded to the winner. More information is available on the USHJA website, from your Zone 5 committee, your local organization or from your local show managers.
If you are interested in donating a prize for the Horsemanship Class, or a contribution to the scholarship fund, please contact Zone Chairman, Mindy Darst at (513) 836-0501 or Mindy@Lochmoorstables.com.
