Saanich Fall Fair Horse Show 2019
The Saanich Fair Horse Show is cosponsored by VIAHA and the Saanich 4-H Horse Club.
Due to the generous support of our many sponsors we are able to offer some very nice High Point prizes, special prizes for all Championship Classes and Prize Money in all classes. Special monetary prizes will go to the winners of the Trail/Handy Horse classes and the Versatility and Pairs classes. Check out the Prize List / Entry Forms to see what you could win!
There will be a Stall Decoration Contest for small and large barns with the winners chosen by the fair-going public.
Lewis McKim is the very accomplished judge for this show. Best known as a judge of Arabian and Miniature horses, Mr. McKim is also a certified to judge General Performance, Hunter/Jumper and Saddleseat Equitation. He has officiated at Arabian shows in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and all over North America and at Miniature Horse shows in Europe as well as closer to home. In 2012, he judged the World Cup Saddleseat Championships.
Make sure to get your entries in by the closing date, Tuesday August 20th, to ensure you get a Fair pass. Remember to include your proof of Horse Council membership!
For VIAHA members to be eligible for the Year End High Point Awards, they must have shown in at least one 1-Day Open Show. Points from the Fair will be added to points earned at the 1-Day shows to determine the Year End High Point Award winners.
