Morgan County Celebration Arena to host Premiere walking charity horse show
The Morgan County Celebration Arena will host one of the premiere walking horse shows in the southeastern United States the third weekend in October. Now in its 48th year, the Alabama Jubilee Charity Horse Show is set for Oct. 16-17, 2015, and is hosted by the Walking Horse Association of Alabama. The show starts at 5 p.m. each evening and admission is $5.
As one of the premier walking horse shows in the southeastern United States, many of the top Tennessee Walking Horses and Racking Horses will travel to Decatur for the two-day competition. Proceeds from the show are donated to Camp Smile-A-Mile, a children’s cancer camp located at Lake Martin in Alexander City. Camp Smile-A-Mile (SAM) is a non-profit organization for children who have or have had cancer. Year-round programs are provided for the campers and their family at no cost.
The Alabama Jubilee Charity Horse Show offers over 50 classes, which include five championship classes. Entries are to be shown by juveniles, amateurs and professionals, all competing for prize money, ribbons and trophies. Each night, there will be exhibitions of current World Champions and World Grand Champions.
The Morgan County Celebration Arena is located at 67 Horse Center Road (off Highway 67 East) in Decatur. For more information, contact Show Manager Brenda May at 256-353-2508.
