According to organizers, interest in this annual event continues to exceed expectations as last year the show doubled in size with 78 horses and 187 entries.
The entry fee is $3 per class, with payback based on number of entries. The first five places will receive ribbons; however, classes may be combined if there are not enough entries in a class.
Proper riding attire and proof of a negative Coggins test is required. No stallions allowed.
The youth event is sponsored by Taney County Riding Club, Douglas County Fox Trotting Horse Breeders Assn., MFTHBYA, and Mansfield Saddle Club.
