Appaloosas to earn money for Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children

MOSCOW, Idaho—Join the Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) for one night at the 62nd National Championship Appaloosa Show to benefit the Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children! Watch exhibitors and their Appaloosas compete for National Championship titles Friday, June 26, and bring a donation of any amount and/or new, unwrapped toys to benefit the hospital.

The Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children, based at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, Miss., is the only area hospital dedicated to the care and treatment of sick and injured youth. The ApHC is looking forward to raising funds to contribute to the care and recovery of more than 150,000 children afflicted with a wide spectrum of injuries and illnesses. Children from the state's 82 counties come to Children's Hospital each year. For more information about the Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children, visit http://childrenshospital.umc.edu/.

Donors will enjoy an evening of competition and watch exhibitors and their Appaloosas compete for big money in the 3-year-old Western Pleasure Slot Futurity. The Non-Pro Nez Perce Stake Race, a uniquely Appaloosa class where competitors race against each other rather than the clock, will follow the slot futurity class. The evening will conclude with the Non-Pro/Youth 5 & Under Hunter Under Saddle Sweepstakes.

After the competition concludes in the show ring, spectators can find the best deals for boots, hats, tack and trailers during the Moonlight Madness Sale at the 2009 Cowboy Way Trading Post from 10 p.m. to midnight. Donations for the Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children will also be accepted at the ApHC Information Booth.

This charity event is held in conjunction with the 62nd National Appaloosa Show & 2009 World Championship Appaloosa Youth Show, June 22-July 4, at the Mississippi State Fairgrounds in Jackson. For more information about the ApHC and its events, please visit http://www.appaloosa.com.

The Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) was established in 1938 with a mission of preserving, promoting and enhancing the Appaloosa breed. The ApHC has since registered more than 670,000 Appaloosas, which are known for their distinctive color, intelligence and even temperament. True to their reputation as an extremely versatile breed, Appaloosas can be found in nearly every discipline including racing, endurance riding and serving as reliable family horses. The international breed registry is headquartered in Moscow, Idaho, the heart of the Palouse region—the Appaloosa breed’s namesake and point of origin.
