ARHPA: launches new Roadster.show, opens entries for May 21 – 22 show, lists Hall Of Fame nominees

Published Date: Apr 28, 2021

 

 “We’re doing all we can to promote roadsters and beef up our online processes so that more people can have access to the overall roadster community,” said American Road Horse & Pony Association President James Nichols. 

At Roadster.show, visitors will find fillable forms for most any transaction they wish to conduct with ARHPA, videos and descriptions of the many ways to compete in the roadster discipline, and links to member benefits such as scholarships, awards, and lucrative prizes. Also planned are interviews with ARHPA Hall Of Fame inductees, features on horses, ponies, and breeders, and much more, such as a freshened logo, updated PayPal and Venmo online payment methods, and enhanced brand development. “Our organization is different from many equine associations,” Nichols pointed out. “We’re not a breed registry. We concentrate our resources on promoting enjoyment with roadster horses and roadster ponies, both under saddle and hooked to bikes or wagons. We are recognized as a National Discipline Affiliate by U.S. Equestrian Federation.” 

Show to be held May 21 – 22

ARHPA’s signature Roadster Horse & Pony Show will be held on Friday and Saturday, May 21 – 22, at Mercer County Fairgrounds, in Harrodsburg, Ky. John Warner, Versailles, Ky., will adjudicate. Classes include a nice selection for American Saddlebreds and Hackney ponies, as well. Entry forms are available at Roadster.show. For shaving orders and/or pre-bedding, call Brad Noel at (859) 613-4503. Show Chairman Rick Adams emphasized that no qualification is necessary for any class at the show, including championship classes, and that stall reservations and advance entries are strongly encouraged. Sponsorships of any amount are also welcomed, Adams said; he may be reached at (678) 296-7442. 

Hall Of Fame nominees announced

ARHPA’s coveted Hall Of Fame has received nominations for these persons to be selected for induction in 2021: Marilyn Macfarlane (posthumous category), Kim Crumpler, of Louisville, Ky., and Jimmy Robertson, of Simpsonville, Ky. Ballots will be emailed or mailed to active ARHPA members, soon. Profiles of nominees are listed at Roadster.show. 

Nichols continued, “We feel there are many fresh opportunities for all persons to enjoy a roadster, and our new online home is a big step in connecting with them. We are looking forward to returning to the show ring and ‘feeling the blast’ of fun that comes with participating with roadsters.” Comments and inquiries are welcomed, he said.
