Celebration 2006, A Brief Overview

by Donna DeYoung

The following information was summarized from "The Foundation of the Pure Spanish Horse Presents Celebration 2006 Show Premium".

"The Foundation is pleased to be able to offer another show which has been approved by the Jefatura de Cria Caballar. We offer a class list whose nomenclature assures that points earned in those classes will count both toward the participating horse's potential place in the Book of Merits and towards the points of their parents. These points also will count towards your stallion or mare's possible place in the coveted 'Elite' status. We offer the same awards that are offered to our counterparts in the Spanish show rings."
