North American Farm Supply Rocky Mountain International Grand Championship Horse Show
September 6, 2018 @ 8:00 am - September 8, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
For the 30th year, Rocky Mountain Horse lovers from all over the world will gather for the North American Farm Supply Rocky Mountain International Grand Championship Horse Show. Owners, trainers, exhibitors, and enthusiasts will celebrate this cherished breed at the Kentucky Horse Park September 6-8. Many RMH fans come to this event even though they do not show horses themselves. They come for the fellowship, the excitement, the shopping, special events, demonstrations, and to share their mutual passion for the RMH. They come to celebrate one of the world’s favorite gaited horses – the Rocky Mountain Horse. Whether spectators’ passion is for trail riding, endurance, cowboy dressage, competitive trail, western, or showing on the rail, there will be exciting displays of horsemanship to witness. It will be a “Rocky Mountain Reunion” like none other.
The International is not only a great way to promote the breed but, it is also a place where people make connections, make decisions about breeding, and look for a Rocky of their own or for one to add to their collection. There will be a variety of events happening at the show: obstacle competitions, costume contests, pole bending, water glass classes, the “Pink” class (benefit for breast cancer research), Facebook Meet & Greet, Ride-A-Rocky, and demonstrations such as Cowboy Mounted Shooting, Side Saddle, and Driving.
It all begins Wednesday, September 6th with an annual membership meeting. On Thursday, conformation classes will be held early and under saddle classes in the afternoon. Friday will be “Youth Day” where activities focus on RMH youth. Saturday afternoon is the Reunion Parade of Past Champions and the Grand Championship classes.
The International provides opportunity for all RMH riders. There is something for everyone from the beginner novice to professionals. Exhibitors can demonstrate their horse’s versatility and skill in classes that count toward special awards. It is always exciting to see who will take home the most prestigious award of all – The Sam Tuttle – given after the last class.
Whether you are an exhibitor or just a lover of the horse, this show brings together a mixture of fun times. Mark your calendar now. Make plans to come to the 2018 North American Farm Supply International Grand Championships and to enjoy the beautiful Rocky Mountain Horse!
