Spotted Versatility Award to be Offered at International Grand Championship 

To commemorate the growth of Spotted Mountain Horse in the show ring, there will be a chance to compete for the SMH Versatility Award at the Second Annual International Grand Championship. 

Any registered SMH wishing to compete for the award will need to declare eligibility at the show office prior to the start of the show on Tuesday morning.  A sign-up sheet will be available in the show office and in your pre-entry packet. There are no required classes; simply the spotted mountain horse with the most total points at the end of the show will be awarded a trophy and a minimum of a $250 cash prize.

A complete description of the versatility award and point distribution can be found in your pre-entry packet - distributed in the July/August issue of KMSH News.

In addition the SMH Futurity is trying to get jump started for 2007.  All stallions who are nominated by December 31, 2006 will be considered as a nominated sire for 2006 and 2007. This means any mare who is bred to a nominated stallion in either 2006 or 2007 will have offspring who will be eligible for the SMH Futurity.  In addition Owners with 2006 weanlings or yearlings whose sires are nominated are eligible to show at this year’s show!

The SMH weanling & yearling Futurity classes will be held concurrently with the KMSH Futurity classes. The horses will be judged separately. At least 3 horses for each age division must be nominated in order to have the classes, so if you have SMH offspring you would like to show, round up your friends and bring them to the International Grand Championship!
