We decided to expand our class list for Halter and Showmanship this year, so we’ve added the following new classes to the lineup. These classes will take place in the In Hand Arena, starting at 11:15am. If everything stays on schedule, the Western In Hand classes should be finished by about 12:45pm, giving riders a 15 minute break to get saddled up for the Western rail classes in the Main Arena which get underway at 1pm. After Western Halter and Showmanship is finished, we’ll start the English Halter and Showmanship classes.
