The Celebration announces Fall Classic class schedule
The Celebration will host the Fall Classic on November 3rd-5th at the Calsonic Arena on the historic Celebration show grounds. Again, for the 2022 Fall Classic, the Celebration will construct a show ring within the Calsonic Arena to allow for ringside tables. These tables are a much-loved aspect of the Fall Classic and provide a close-up look at the action.
The tables will cost $1,500, come with eight seats, eight meal tickets per night, and this year will include an open bar. The tables also qualify for bronze-level sponsorship of the Fall Classic and parking passes.
The 2021 Fall Classic will be judged by Jennifer Bingham, Robert Cortner and David Sisk. The panel is experienced with Sisk and Bingham both having multiple appearances judging The Celebration and Cortner, who previously judged the 2021 Spring Fun Show. Sisk has judged The Celebration four times, most recently in 2021. Bingham has judged The Celebration seven times with her most recent appearance in 2017.
The show will be a triple-point Riders’ Cup show and culminate with the Andy Adkins Memorial Youth Championship on Saturday night, which has been the tradition for the Fall Show. Bush Hog and Eagleville Implement have added $1,000 to the prize money for the first place youth in the Andy Adkins championship class. To add to unique excitement of the Celebration Fall Classic, the Celebration has moved the Grooms and Farriers on Walking Horses class to the last class on Friday night. The winning groom or farrier will receive a Celebration logoed Yeti Cooler.
Again, this year the class sheet features the Debut classes for two-year-olds that have not shown in 2022, and the Celebration will again have one class for Mares and Geldings (Sponsored by Bruce and Robin MacDonald) and one for Stallions. The prize money for the winner of both classes is $3,000 this year. Sponsorship remains available for the stallions class.
Bush Hog and Eagleville Implement have also added $1,000 to the prize money for the winners in the Amateur Novice Riders on Walking Horses and the Amateur Novice Riders on Flat Shod Walking Horses.
