With expert speakers, great examples, one of the best tack sales in the nation and what should be some great ponies running through the sale. Why wouldn't you take the time to come? If you are looking to start off in the moderns or have been showing for many years and just need to refresh some training techniques, you can learn a lot from speakers like Dr. Raun, Gib Marcucci, Darrel Kolkman and many more. Now, most of the things they will be talking about will be based on the Hackney ponies but almost all of it can be transferred over to the Shetland breeds and Miniatures.

There is always some great tack on the sale. You can pick up some great work & show harnesses, horse shoes, work & show carts, and much more tack. I've bought a real nice road cart and a viceroy from past sales that I use in the show ring for great prices.

As for the pony sale. There has been some great ponies ran threw the sale in the past and have gone for good prices. Many top Hackney & Shetland breeders have sold & bought their show stock on the Midwest Hackney sales. With the ASPR division growing, this will be a great opportunity to buy a great show pony to show in the ASPR classes at Congress & other shows.

If you haven't heard about the sale or haven't received your Journal yet, it will be held at the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield Illinois on May 1st & 2nd. For any info call or email Mike Herron. He should be able to tell you what ever you need to know.

I am going to try to go. I have been waiting for a good clinic and Midwest has surely set up some great speakers! I have Dr. Raun's tape and love it!

Anyone from MN or WI wanna ride and hotel share? I am not looking to take a trailer myself.

I would love to come to it but I think that will be about prime time for the mares to foal around here. I will have to check due dates though and double check.

About how many head do they sale and will there be an online catalog? NOT that I need anything else but I sure would not drive all of the way to IL without a horse trailer! biggrin.gif

Leah if you go I will go with you. I might go regardless, but would like to have company. I am going to talk to Diane as well. This would be great for her.

I don't know how many are consigned to the sale yet. I was on the website today, and there was only a couple of Hackney listed so far. But there is always some real nice ones that will end up on the website. The closing date is April 1st. The website is, www.midwesthackney.com. Again, I would encourage anybody wanting to learn more about moderns, to attend. Even if you're not a modern showman or breeder, you can still learn a lot that can be transferred over to the classics and minis.

Thanks for posting the website. I will keep an eye on it.

Michelle, I have one of my AR clients interested in going so will see what works out. My luck Mark will not be here and I will need to stay to babysit foaling mares! It does sound like a great clinic and of course I would love seeing all of the stuff for sale and the ponies for sale too. It at least falls on a NON pony show weekend for me.
