The Board of Directors of the ASHA is pleased to announce that through the generosity of Anna Marie Knipp’s Superior Sales LLC, the proceeds from a consignment fee and certain auction items at this year’s October 25-26 sale will be donated to the ASHA to help fund the extensive technology/computer upgrade project, which is just getting underway.
“PURE EXCITEMENT” is the theme of the 2013 UPHA Convention scheduled for January 3-5 at the celebrated Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, NV.
Perhaps it is the bright lights of the Vegas Strip, or the fabulous Casinos and never ending nightlife.
I wouldn’t say I don’t know anything about horses. I know they have been the object of my fascination since the beginning. I used to have a big book of all the breeds and had even circled the ones I wanted to own at some point; the ones adorned with a star were the select few I would beg Santa for every year. I pleaded with my dad to bring Tornado, Zorro’s fiery steed, home for me to play with (how I thought he knew the guy was beyond me). When I was old enough, I was finally allowed to ride.
The 2012 Superior Sales Horse and Tack Auction is fast approaching with entries closing September 20, 2012. The sale will be held this year on the new dates of October 26 and 27 at the St. Louis National Equestrian Center. This climate-controlled facility also provides a horse show type atmosphere instead of the typical auction straightaway. Furthermore, the center is a great location allowing for everything to be under one roof but also easy access by air and interstate.
The Midwest Charity Horse Show is announcing its dates for the 2013 show. The 72nd Midwest Charity Horse Show, June 11-15, 2013 is held at the Illinois State Fairgrounds Coliseum and runs five days with class sessions at 11 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. daily. Reservations made at the Ramada during the 2012 show for the 2013 show will automatically be switched to the correct dates by the hotel.
The UPHA is gearing up for the Second Annual “Meet the Stars of the Show Backstage” at the 2012 World’s Championship Horse Show. In 2011 we allowed visitors of the Kentucky State Fair to come behind the scenes and meet our wonderful horses. It was a HUGE hit with the visitors of the Kentucky State Fair!
