Russell Frey to Participate at Dallas Harvest, Top Hunter Competition Expected

Tyler, TX - November 1, 2008 - The 2008 Dallas Harvest Horse Show will welcome many of the top hunter competitors in Texas and surrounding areas this year. The 'AA' show will be held November 5-9 at the Texas Rose Horse Park. Texas resident and top professional Russell Frey will be at the show for his sixth appearance.

Frey, a resident of Argyle, TX, owns the successful stable Elysian Fields. He is a top rider, trainer, and hunter judge and is a strong proponent of the Dallas Harvest Horse Show. Frey has lived in the Dallas area for five years and has attended this particular horse show every year. At last year's show, Frey won the Grand Hunter Championship and received the Union Avenue Trophy. His fondest memory of the Dallas Harvest Horse Show was his initial show there; he won every class in two hunter divisions.

"It is one of the few horse shows left in the country where there are a lot of volunteers who put a lot of time and effort into making the horse show special," he said. "They do a lot of different things, and they get sponsorship from the horse community."

These sponsorships include such novelties as a snack cart with free water and snacks for competitors as well as complimentary breakfast in the mornings. Frey noted, "They try to make the horse show a little bit more special than just your average, generic horse show."

Frey believes that the horse show facility itself is a great venue for the competition. "I think there is a little bit of a different atmosphere. They really try to make it nice for the exhibitors," he explained. "I am sure it will be packed this year, as it should be. I think there is a different atmosphere compared a lot of the horse shows that we all attend on a regular basis."

In addition to running a first-class hunter/jumper competition, the Dallas Harvest Horse Show also benefits Habitat for Horses. Frey feels that this too sets the show apart. He said, "I think that it's a great thing. I think it is something they get a lot of support for from the horse community because it is to care for the animals that we love, and that is why we are doing this."

This year, Frey will compete in the hunter divisions as well as the $25,000 Dallas Harvest Grand Prix. He complimented the footing in the rings at the show and looks forward to the participation and atmosphere found there. "I love going there. I like seeing a bunch of my friends that I have not seen in a while and basically being in Tyler. I really enjoy the horse show all the way around," he concluded.

Dallas Harvest Horse Show is an 'AA' rated event, known for its hospitality, special events and top competition. All proceeds raised from the fundraiser events will directly benefit Habitat for Horses. Classes include the $25,000 Dallas Harvest Grand Prix benefiting Habitat for Horses, the $15,000 ASG Software Solutions/USHJA International Hunter Derby, the $5,000 Jumper Classic, the $3,000 Welcome Stake sponsored by Nordic Lights Farm & The Bruheim Family, and the $2,500 Children's/Adult Jumper Classic.
