08/30/2012 New Grand Champion to be Named – Racking Horse World Celebration set for September 21-29, 2012

leave a comment »

Decatur, Ala. – With more than 170 classes for children, adults, amateurs, and professionals, the largest Racking Horse Show in the United States is set for September 21-29, 2012 at the Morgan County Celebration Arena located at 67 Horse Center Road (off Highway 67 East) in Decatur. The nine day competition culminates with the announcement of the new World Grand Champion and show organizers extend an invitation to the general public to come and experience the excitement of crowning a new grand champion.

The annual World Celebration offers other activities, including a dog show, horse sales, a barn decorating contest, nightly consignment sales, and a golf tournament. The general public is invited to participate in the Pleasure Association’s 50/50 raffle and the “When Pigs Fly” contest. Each night of the show, participants can attempt to fly a pig toward a target with the closest one winning a cash prize. On Saturday night prior to announcing the World Grand Champion, children are invited to participate in the “Stick Horse” class. This event allows children to bring their own stick horse for friendly competition in the arena.

Shows are held nightly at 6 p.m. except on Wednesday when show time begins at 5:30 p.m. Admission is $5 per person September 21 through 26 and $7 per person for the remaining nights of the competition. Parking is $5/daily.

With the formation of the Racking Horse Breeders Association of America (RHBAA) in 1971, the Racking Horse has grown in popularity. Today, there are over 80,000 racking horses registered with the RHBAA, a not-for-profit organization headquartered in Decatur, Alabama.  The Alabama Legislature proclaimed the racking horse as the “Official State Horse for the State of Alabama” on October 5, 1975.

For more information on the 2012 Racking Horse World Celebration including a schedule of events, visit www.rackinghorse.com or contact the RHBAA at 256.353.7225.
