The Kansas Expocentre

We are very flexible on the class list. If you have a class you would like to see added, especially the show practice classes, please send Lynn an email or call her at 913-579-7709. Because we have more room, you might think about bringing your young stock that need ring time.

You MUST call or email in your entries (using our online entry form below) by the Wednesday before the show. After Wednesday, entries will not be accepted. Please order stalls early, class changes during the show are acceptable. Entry fees are $20/class.

The warm-up ring will be restricted to the class following the one currently in the ring once classes have commenced.

HIGH POINT AWARDS FOR EACH CLASS

Every class offered will have a High Point Award given out at the last tournament of the season, with a championship ribbon and trophy for each division. Heidi Stanfield has generously offered to track our points this year. Thanks to Heidi for accepting this task. Come show as often as you can and watch those points add up!
