The largest Racking Horse Show in the United States, the 2008 World Celebration in Priceville, Ala., runs Sept. 20-27 with more than 140 classes for children and adults in both amateur and professional categories. The Celebration ends with the announcement of the new Racking Horse World Grand Champion.
On Thursday, Sept. 25, there will be a Fun Show with pole bending, an arena race, broom polo, a ribbon race and an egg and spoon race. Prior to announcing the World Grand Champion on the evening of Sept. 27, children are invited to participate in the “Stick Horse” class.
