140 Stalls and Counting! Great weather is predicted for the weekend so join us for a great show, great fun and great prizes!
The awards for this show are unprecedented
for both DPHA and FtPHA. Both clubs are doing everything they can to keep this show as it is – a 2 judge 2 day Paint Pinto Combined show. Another objective is to send awards home with the most people we can and to show appreciation for the folks that support the club year round. Therefore the awards for both clubs have the same rules:
1. You must be a member of each club and eligible for year-end awards to receive the high point awards provided by each. To win the saddles and halters, you have to be a DPHC member. To be eligible for the director’s chairs and hat cans you have to be a member of FtPHA. Your membership for DPHA would have had to be in by the end of March. Your membership for FtPHA would have had to be paid by the April show. There will be lists posted in the office for both clubs.
2. Six different exhibitors are going home with six different saddles, halters, director’s chairs, hat cans.
3. Both clubs will follow the same rules for distribution of awards.
Please be patientat the end of the show on Sunday as staff gets the totals together for the winners. We don’t want any mistakes so the calculators will be extra vigilant.
The Winner's Circle
will be very busy at this show and YES!!! there will be a photographer to take pictures or exhibitors/horses both Saturday and Sunday and in the winner's circle when the prizes are distributed. The photographer coming to the show is Patricia Macfarlane Photography. Trish is a fine arts digital/photographic artist. She specializes in photographing horses and digitally enhancing the images. Below are three examples of her work. Trish has agreed to stick around after the show on Sunday so she can photograph folks with their trophy saddles, halters, chairs and hat cans.
The Tampa Bay Sport Commission
has made the saddles possible for this show. Jason Aughey and the wonderful folks there have made Tampa the best possible place for us to show. It's the kind of support we get from them that keeps us coming to the Florida State Fairgrounds.
Don't forget the DPHC Meeting.
