Petition regarding showing in the road horse division at various horse shows.

Lana Gilpin at lvgstables@me.com is circulating a petition regarding showing road horses.  The petition is copied below, under our conversation.

I wrote to her because we are unable to show our wonderful morgan mare, Sleipnir Onstar, at shows like the Dixie Cup, which has dedicated classes for Saddlebreds, Morgans, and Hackneys.  There are no Standardbreds shown there.  Even if there were, we were looking for a Morgans only class.

Under previous rules, this would not have been a problem.  Under the current changed rules, it was not possible to show her there.

Please read our conversation and her petition.  If you have any questions you can email her or call.  Please also contact her to support the petition. All it does is go back to the old rules, and let more nice horses be shown in road classes.  Whether you are new to the horse show world, or an old-timer, the purpose of this petition allows for more nice classes for more nice horses…

Thank you for taking the time to read this; and your support.

Our conversation:

Hi Lana,

… Correct me if I am wrong.

We have a Morgan that we have shown roadster-to-bike, we could not show her at a Morgan-Saddlebred-Hackney show…
We could not even have a Morgan roadster to bike class included in the show…not allowed by the current rules.
All classes were breed specific…so, not like they were competing in an open show. The way I read your petition, it would address this issue.

If I am correct, we support the petition, so will our trainer and friends.

Lana’s reply:
Yes Georgia this would address your issue as well. Thank you for your support.

My reply:
Then absolutely include us.
And I’ll send it on to our trainer who predominantly does hackneys.

Please contact Lana to be included on the petition. Or if you have any questions.
