Heads up to our American Saddlebred, hackney and roadster horse show exhibitors. The Morgan County Celebration Arena in Priceville is holding the Alabama Charity Championship Horse Show - and it’s just around the corner. Woes if your entries haven’t been sent in on time since it’s all happening from October 9 through 12.
2013 is the 23rd year for the Alabama Charity Championship Horse Show. It’s a mighty big show – in fact it’s about the fourth largest in the United States by all counts. At least 700 horses ship in from all over the U.S. but especially from the eastern half of the country.
This year’s Alabama Charity offers classes for amateurs, professionals and juniors. They’ll be in competition for trophies and ribbons, and prize money, too.
It’s for worthy causes! All proceeds of the show will benefit the Junior League of Morgan County and, importantly, the Childrens’ Hands-On Museum at Carnegie Visual Art Center.
Starting Wednesday and going through Saturday, the evening competitions will begin at 6 p.m. each day. On Thursday and on Friday, the morning show begins at 10 a.m. and on Saturday, the morning show begins at 9 a.m.
Horse-related product vendors will set up displays so folks can find ‘horse stuff’ and early holiday gifts. The vendors offer unique products of horse interest from paintings to clothing to books to tack. There’s no admission.
The show brings celebrated horses and people contenders together to compete for top honors, cash prizes and to raise money for local charities.
