2018/04/03











The Alabama Arabian Horse Association brought their Four Region Qualifier show to the Tunica, Mississippi Expo Center again for the “Riverboat Parlay,” March 21-15, 2018. The show was a qualifier for Regions 9, 12, 14, and 15, offering a wide array of classes for Arabians and Half Arabians: hunter, western, English, halter, show hack, costume, country English for Open, Amateur, and Junior riders, sport horse in hand and under saddle, and dressage. On Wednesday and Thursday were the main classes and championships for Regions 9 and 15, sporting 55 entries. On Friday and Saturday were the main classes and championships for Regions 12 and 14, with 109 entries. Many horses competed in both shows. Then on Sunday were Dressage, Trail and Ranch Riding for Regions 12 and 14.

Judges were: in the Main Ring: Region 9, Jack Thomas; Region 12, John Rannenbert; Region 14, Johnny Ryan; and Region 15, Jim Lowe. In the Sport Horse Ring: Region 9, Leslie O’Neil-Olsen; Region 15, Patty Wright Shoemaker; Region 12, Carole Bishop; and Region 14, Fatima Pawlenko-Kranz. Both Bishop and Kranz are 2018 US Sport Horse Nationals Judges.

There was plenty of hospitality at the show, too, with a welcome pizza party, sponsored by Shamrock Farm on Tuesday. Exhibiters and Trainers got to enjoy a free concert by Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers at Horseshoe Casino on Thursday night. There was a margarita party on Saturday, and coffee and refreshments every morning. Show entertainment included was an AAHA dice toss and an AAHA costume class. A Silent Auction offered a wide variety of items including three tons of feed and breedings to eight stallions.

Some of the Top Arabian Trainers from all over the U.S. came to compete in Tunica. Everyone was very pleased with the facility, even though entries were down compared to last year.
