Planning Underway for 2009 North American Championships


Preparations are in full swing for the 2009 North American Gaited Horse Championships, which will be held October 15th through October 17th at the Missouri State Fairgrounds in Sedalia, MO. 


Those planning the show are very excited about the event, which will offer breed-specific classes for Tennessee Walking Horses, Missouri Foxtrotters, Spotted Saddle Horses and Peruvian Pasos.  There will also be many Open Gaited Breed classes.


A new twist to the show schedule is being added this year.  Thursday, October 15th will feature the versatility, dressage and sport horse type classes such as speed, water glass, western parade and many others.  Friday, October 16th will be “Western” day, with all Western rail classes, as well as the western Championships and Grand Championships.  And Saturday, October 17th will be “English” day, with all English rail classes, Championships and Grand Championships. 


The only exception to this schedule is that Missouri Foxtrot rail classes will all be on Saturday, October 17th.  Please visit our website in progress,, for more information.  We hope to see many wonderful horses in Missouri this October!
