HIGH-POINT JACKPOT ADDED TO SPRING FUN SHOW

SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration has announced a $2,000 High-Point Jackpot has been added to final night of the 2005 Spring Fun Show.

This exciting addition comes on the heels of a restructuring of the class schedule for 35th annual spring showcase at Calsonic Arena.

The new schedule groups halter and pleasure classes on Thursday night, Owner-Amateur classes on Friday night, and professional classes on Saturday night.

"The Saturday night performance at the Spring Fun Show will feature the professional trainers and some of the most talented horses in the industry," said Celebration CEO and Show Manager Ron Thomas. "We feel like this addition will bring out the competitive spirit all of our trainers embody."

Three trainers will share in the bounty. The trainer accumulating the most points on Saturday night will receive $1,000. The second highest total will receive $650 and the third highest will receive $350.

The Spring Fun Show awards eight ribbons in each class and points will be awarded accordingly. A first-place ribbon will receive eight points while an eighth-place ribbon will receive one point.

"The Fun Show was given that name for a reason and we want to add one more way for the fans to enjoy the entire show," said Thomas. "The new class schedule has been generally well received. Having the pros ride their very best horses for a cash bonus is win-win situation for riders and fans alike."

The check presentations to the high-point winners will take place immediately after the final class (Walking Stallions, Over 15.2, Five Years and Over) in center ring.

The 35th Annual Spring Fun Show is scheduled for May 26-28, 2005 at Calsonic Arena at the Historic Celebration Grounds in Shelbyville, TN.
