The Mid-America Horse Show Association is sponsoring its final show of the year in the Coliseum at the Illinois State Fairgrounds. Incorporated in 1939, the nonprofit association is a charter member of the American Saddlebred Horse Association and is affiliated with the United States Equestrian Federation and the Horsemen's Council of Illinois. It is committed to providing an environment for members to fully realize and enjoy their involvement with American Saddlebreds, Hackney ponies and roadsters through competitions, education and other equine-related activities. Over 100 classes are offered, such as fine harness, show pleasure driving and open-breed hunter pleasure. The show will also include the Good Hands National Finals, which is the first leg of the Triple Crown competition for junior exhibitors and completes the Triple Crown adult equitation rider's competition. The show is free and open to the public.
