Celebration Announces Fun Show Judges; Additions To Class Schedule



The Celebration will host the 43rd Annual Spring Fun Show May 23-25, 2013 in the Calsonic Arena in Shelbyville, Tenn.  The 43rd Annual Spring Fun Show will be judged by Jamie Hankins, Paris, KY; Derek Bonner, Mooresboro, NC; and Jerry Collier, Rogersville, AL.

The traditional Spring Fun Show date on Memorial Day weekend will continue but this year’s show will have some new additions to the class schedule.  The schedule will include the new division, Owner/Amateur Five-Year-Olds with both a stallion and mare & gelding division.  The Celebration has previously crowned a Young Trainer World Championship, but this year the Fun Show will add the crown of an Experienced Trainer, 36 years of age and over in a Riders’ Cup class.

In addition to these three classes, there will also be a 15.2 & Under Walking Horses, Riders Cup class.  The growth of the country pleasure division will see an Amateur Owned and Trained Country Pleasure, optional tack class added as well.

“We are excited to have what we feel is an outstanding judging panel.  We also feel these new classes will add even more excitement to the 43rd Annual Spring Fun Show,” said Celebration CEO Mike Inman.  For a complete class schedule and more information regarding the 43rd Annual Spring Fun Show visit The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration at www.TWHNC.com.
