Mississippi Charity Plans To Roll Out The Red Carpet



The Mississippi Charity Horse Show, known for its southern hospitality and great horses, has made several improvements to this year’s show schedule. The prize money has been increased by $10,000 that brings the total to over $40,000. The Three-Year-Old Stake class will be a $5000 class and the Overall Stake class has been increased to $3000, as well as increases in many other classes.
 
In addition, checks will be given following the horse show Saturday night instead of being mailed, which is a first for Jackson. This year’s class line-up will include 23 Riders’ Cup and 19 Stake/Championship classes. Both juvenile stakes on Saturday night will have floral horseshoes. For the first time, there are several classes that will be non-qualifying classes, the Youth Stakes, the Open Two-Year-Old Stake, the Open Three-Year-Old Stake, Open Four-Year-Old Stake, Open 15.2 Stake and the Open Grand Championship. 
 
There will be no increases on stalls, shaving and entry fees. There will be 26 afternoon classes that will pay $100 per class instead of just ribbons as last year. The night classes will have a minimum payback of $300.
 Show Chairman Carol Lackey and show spokesman Robert Taylor commented, “We are excited about our 2014 show and would like to extend personal invitations to join us and enjoy out Southern hospitality: breakfast in center ring each morning; parties Thursday and Friday nights; crawfish and live auction Saturday at noon and tables on the arena floor are available that include a full meal and two drink tickets. As you can see, we have tried to roll out the red carpet for you this year. Please consider us as you arrange your show schedule. We all must work hard to keep our industry moving forward.”
