If you want to have a great time, and have some fun with your horses, please join us at the 2008 Colorado State Fair! Classes for our horses will run all day on Aug. 26, so Iíd suggest coming into the fairgrounds on Aug. 25, and leaving on Aug. 27. This show does pay back exhibitors, so you shouldnít go away empty handed!

We always have fun at these shows! Itís a good way to get folks interested in our gaited horses.

Show Manager: Lindsay Wadhams (719-404-2025) or (719-561-2083 fax)

If youíd like more information about our experiences at the fair, please contact me personally (Jennifer Nichols: or 970-856-4760). Iím the UMH representative for the SW Region.

2. TWHA-CO 2009 Celebration Show Planning!

Hi to all you gaited folks out there! I know many of you ride these gaited horses on the trail, but showing can be fun too! It really helps you to see gaps in your it's fun to get gussied up a bit too!

Itís been quite difficult to start up any large shows for specific breeds of gaited horses in Colorado. There just arenít enough of us to put on a really good show! The TWH Association of Colorado has been including classes for mountain horses (via UMH classes) and all other breeds (via OGB classes) at their annual celebration. They had to cancel their 2008 show, but are planning on having a huge show in 2009 (tentatively planned for July 30-Aug. 2, 2009). They have scheduled the use of the National Western Complex in Denver, Colorado. This is a fabulous indoor facility, with all the perks! This is the place where the Denver ďRocky Mountain Horse ExpoĒ is held in March every year.

Since I am the United Mountain Horse representative for the SW Region, Iíve been in communication with the TWHA of CO, in order to get our UMH classes incorporated into this big event. They will also have lots of Open Gaited Breed (OGB) classes, so many different types of gaited horses will have the opportunity to show at this wonderful event!

If you are interested in attending next year, please contact me (or the TWHA-CO folks), to help them plan for next yearís event. This should be a great show, especially if we can pull some out of state folks to the show (or get some of you folks who havenít shown before out!). Showing may seem frightening to some, but this group always has lots of laughs at their events. Itís no fun to be uptight and stuffyÖthis is a chance to show off your horse for a bit, and meet some great people as well!
