*2021 SHOW SEASON
May 1st is NEKSAG
Kick Off Benefit Show
in Valley Falls!
NEKSAG Group!! Just reminder that this Saturday is May 1 and the NEKSAG Benefit Kickoff Full Horse Show starting at 10 am at the Valley Falls Saddle Club Arena!! All classes are $1.00 and no payback as all monies go to the NEKSAG funds for Year End Awards! This is your chance to try out all the classes without a lot of money out of your pockets...........well....... that is..........if you don't have several kids riding!! LOL There will also be a very nice concession stand available for food and drinks! Our NEKSAG King and Queen, Alternate Queen/Princess will be chosen at this show for 2021 Season....all contestants that compete for the titles must be either a King or Queen, Princess of their own saddle club... This show is open to the public and any one can come ride and pay fees without having to join a club. To be able to get year end awards however, you must either belong to a saddle club or pay $50 for that privilege.....You must also NOMINATE your horse(s) for a $5.00 fee of rider/horse combination....which means if I own 1 horse cost is $5.00. If I want to nominate 3 horses the cost is $15.00. Same goes with every family rider.....each rider must nominate for year end awards. A person may pay the $5. for themselves, then also others can share that horse in their particular age groups but they also pay the $5. If you have 1 horse, nominate yourself, plus nominate your spouse or child, it is $5 EACH to nominate on single horse. I hope this helps to understand.....at year end, the points are tabulated and the top 6 with most points will receive awards if you have shown in the particular class 3 times, All kids 6 & under will receive prizes....
Hope to see everyone Saturday at the NEKSAG Benefit Kickoff Show!!! This ALSO MEANS all participants need to HELP run the show, whether you are assisting the judge in arena, opening gates for classes, setting up poles/barrels/flag..... if everyone would help even for a short while, it is so appreciated! These Benefit shows means all members from all clubs need to help! Example: If you show judged classes, you need to help with the timed speed events and the timed speed riders need to arrive early to help with the judged classes.....this keeps everyone from getting overworked! Some people work themselves to death! This also goes for all shows if you can spare a little bit of time, it helps the club members so much!!
There will be Nomination forms available if you have not yet printed one off the website at: www.anythinghorses.com. All nominations must be on this form so Sheila Chalfant has all the correct information entered. The Nominations will be listed on the website after she updates it....please be patient as there will be a lot handed in at the show......make sure you write a separate check for the nominations or pay with cash. This makes it a lot easier for clubs when they have to figure out if when settling up what goes for nominations and what goes for classes..........it is very hectic with everyone trying to enter, settle up, on classes....
ALSO, REMEMBER TO CALL BEFORE YOU HAUL if in doubt as rain is forcast for next couple days.....the arena is perfect condition for this show at this time!!!!! Those numbers are: 785-393-1922 or 785-215-0073
