show gathered 97 entries with 40 horses, competing in more than
30 classes: Amateur, Youth and Open among them. Apart of a full
slate of halter classes, showmanship, trail, western pleasure,
hunter under saddle, western riding and reining were offered.
The show was judged by Heiko Keuchel from Germany. This year the
organizers expect even more horses. And since the Czech Rep. entered
the European Community, it will be a good opportunity for foreign
breeders and riders to come to Celadna to gather some APHA points.
The 2004 Czech Paint Horse show will be judged by Ms. Lise Wiebe
from the Netherlands.
Horse Ranch is one of the best western riding facilities not only
in Czech Republic but also in Central Europe. You will find there
two indoor arenas (30 x 60 m and 20 x 40 m) with good footing.
There is also a big outside arena (36 x 77 m). The stable offers
53 boxes, a washing stand and a solarium. For those wishing to
watch the show, there is a bar with a great view on the main indoor
arena. Next to the horse ranch you will find a 18-hole golf course
designed by Miguel Angel Jimenez.
Paint Horse Club was founded in 1995 and was officially approved
by the APHA in 1998 (as the 126th regional club). In 2002 there
was already 60 members (27 of them were APHA members) and 58 horses
registered. Today there is more than 70 APHA members in Czech
Rep. and more than 120 horses registered. The first APHA approved
show in Czech Rep. was held in 2001 in Nova Amerika. There was
19 horses competing in 5 classes. The next year the second Paint
Horse Show gathered 30 horses and there were 41 classes offered
(17 halter classes and 24 performance classes).
