The OHAHA board of Directors has made the decision to move both the OHAHA Spring and Fall shows back to Roberts Arena in Wilmington Ohio for 2010.

After moving the shows back to the very expensive Ohio State Fairgrounds in 2008 both shows were run at a loss for two consecutive years. The decision to move back to Roberts Arena was an easy one as Mary Roberts took back over the facility at the end of 2008 and has since put over $300,000.00 in renovations as well as hired a very capable manager in Jenny Riddle. This move will allow us to reduce the cost of showing for the exhibitor as well as put on a fun show for everyone.

For the Spring show we have added Select Rider classes in Western, Hunter Pleasure, English and Country divisions. Changed the prize money payouts as follows $200.00 for all Junior Horse and $250.00 for Open and Amateur Championships. stall fee's, entry fee's, early arrival, shavings and camper fee's have all went down in cost.

For the Fall show we have added Select Rider classes in Western, Hunter Pleasure, English and Country divisions. Changed the prize money payouts as follows $200.00 for all Championships. Stall fee's, entry fee's, early arrival, shavings and camper fee's have all went down in cost.


I am pleased to announce the outstanding 2010 Judges for both shows.

Spring Show: April 23 thru 25. 2010
Main Ring - Lori Conway from Minnesota 2010 US Nationals Judge
Sport Horse April 24
Barbara Thuerk from Illionois

Fall Show: August 28 and 29, 2010
Scott Brumfield from Pennsylvania 2010 US Natioanls Judge

Have you dropped dressage from the Spring show? Wilmington has made incredible improvements to the footing it is so nice should be a great show!

I am sorry to say we will not be offering Dressage for now as it is expensive and we lost money each year and could not get the number of rides we needed to come close to breaking even.
