Aug 24th, 2016 | By | Category: News

Mid-America Mane Event Horse Show, host to The Good Hands National Finals, is pleased to announce their panel of judges. Judges for all divisions are Nancy Becker, Tammie Conatser, and Susi Day.
The Good Hands Finals is the first leg of the Triple Crown for junior exhibitors and is now completing the triple crown for adult equitation riders. The Good Hands Adult National Finals was offered for the first time last year.
Sharon Gardner, member of the Good Hands Committee, says “The Good Hands Finals Committee was very pleased with the support the industry gave to last year’s adult finals and with the all riders who competed in the inaugural Good Hands Adult National Finals. As a committee, we are as committed to developing a quality competition for the adults mirroring as closely as possible what has been established for the Good Hands Junior Exhibitor National Finals”.
All adult equitation riders, who have shown in any adult 2016 equitation class, are eligible for The Good Hands Adult National Finals. Visit our website for the complete program.
The Good Hands Finals is the oldest and largest saddle seat equitation finals in the country. The finals originated in 1929 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. When the competition was moved to the Mid-America Mane Event Horse Show in 2009, it grew by 78%.
National Horseman Publishing is the proud sponsor of The Good Hands National Finals. For more information, contact Sharon Gardner at 630-738-0867 or visit us at www.thegoodhands.org or on Facebook: The Good Hands.
Showing at the Illinois State Fairgrounds Coliseum in Springfield, you will be competing at the country’s best facility. The Mane Event Horse Show is a national competition for Saddlebreds, Hackney Ponies, Road Horses and Equitation Riders. Additionally, we offer an open division for all breeds.
The Mane Event Horse Show is the last chance for competitors to qualify for this year’s UPHA Classics, UPHA Challenge Cups, and the USEF Medal competitions offered at the American Royal.
