Preparations are underway for the Dixie National Equestrians with Disabilities Show scheduled for February 5 & 6, 2019 at the Kirk Fordice (Watson Ford) Equine Center, on the State Fairgrounds in Jackson, MS. This year, our 21st year, will truly be bigger and better than ever before. The show boasts FREE entry fees and no stall fees for exhibitors. All fees are paid by the Mississippi Quarter Horse Youth Association. We are fortunate to have all four judges donating their services for the event. Others donating their services are show coordinator, announcers, show secretary, and the MANY volunteers it takes to put on a horse show event.
We will offer four sets of AQHA points, four sets of NSBA points, and four sets of PHBA points. Don’t forget, the composite winner in each class is awarded the coveted Dixie National Jacket. This will be the best deal yet for equestrians from all over the country to come and join with us in a competitive but yet friendly environment.
Bailey Carwile, President of the Mississippi Quarter Horse Youth Association says, “The Dixie National Equestrian’s With Disabilities Show is one of my absolute favorite MQHA/MQHYA projects. I have been involved with it for the past several years, and it’s something I look forward to every year. There’s just something about seeing the riders’ faces light up with pure joy when they hear their name called and they receive their ribbon that just touches you. They are extremely excited about the show, and they are truly appreciative of all the effort that is put into making this event happen. Their excitement just makes us want to do it that much more. It is awe-inspiring to watch just how hard they try when they’re riding, and it makes you appreciate just how easy we have it.”
“With the 2019 Dixie National EWD Show quickly approaching, I would like to encourage anyone eligible to make plans to compete and anyone who can to volunteer to come and help with the show. All are sure to be blessed! Good luck and safe travels to and from the show. See y’all there!”
