Members of the Northwest Saddlebred Association and Morgan Horse Club of Washington state encourage equestrian enthusiasts and the general public to come out and witness the athleticism and grace of the American Saddlebred and Morgan breeds at Key Classic Horse Show May 8-11, 2014 at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe, Washington. The show will benefit Equest Special Riders, a non-profit organization of trained volunteers who provide therapeutic-recreational horseback and pony riding for persons left physically or mentally dysfunctional through irregularities of birth, high fevers, disease or trauma.
There will be a free Tail Gait Party Saturday between 3-5 for any youth interested in attending an educational clinic to learn more about these two breeds. Free pizza, beverages, dessert and goodie bags will also be available while supplies last. Youth are asked to meet at the restrooms centrally located within the equestrian center.
Northwest Saddlebred Association youth will serve up muffins for Oso moms on Sunday. Free Starbucks coffee and muffins will be served from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Donations will support Oso moms and the Mudslide Relief Fund and NWSA Youth Club.
Admission to Key Classic Benefit Horse Show is free. Guests are welcome to visit the stables, meet riders and their horses.
