SCOTTSDALE CLASSIC COMES TO THE END
Jerry Kimmel, Chairman, Barbara Dietz, Event Producer, Don and Carol Moore, Show Management of the Scottsdale Classic, would like to thank everyone — trainers, owners, exhibitors, sponsors, vendors and dedicated staff, for their incredible support from the very beginning.
It is with mixed emotions that we announce that 2012 was the last year of the Scottsdale Classic. Great parties were held, great friendships were made, world class horses were shown, with great prizes and added money won. The Scottsdale Classic’s legacy will be as a shining example of how horse shows should be: events that are fun for exhibitors, held at a World Class facility.
We will all carry our “Classic” memories with us as we move on. Most certainly, “Classic” stories will be swapped ringside at another show, in another place. And perhaps, that Classic Style will continue to spread throughout the horse show world.
