The Perfecta Farm Show Wraps Up With Special Classes in the Grand Prix Ring

Fundraising and Donations go the Dogs!

The Perfecta Farm B Show is a weekend filled with special events and tons of prizes while raising money for charity.

Roscoe, IL- August 5, 2019 - Perfecta Farm wrapped up another fantastic horse show weekend at Ledges Sporting Horses in Roscoe, Illinois. The show is always one of the most fun events of the season, filled with fun classes, amazing awards and great hospitality. In addition to all of the horse-related fun, it’s the Dachshunds that are the icing on the cake, featuring a silent auction and raffle filled with one great item after another to raise funds for the Midwest Dachshund Rescue. 

Perfecta Farm trainers Kim Gardiner, Mara Kranz-Olseng and Carmine D’Aversa host the show with classes from walk-trot up to hunter derbies and jumper classics. The group is already working on some fun new ideas for next year’s event. 

The grand finale on Sunday gives riders the opportunity to ride in the supersized grand prix ring. The day is filled with the $500 Perfecta Farm Hunter Derby, the $500 Chicago Equestrian Hunter Derby, the Perfecta Farm Equitation Classic, the Perfecta Farm Jumper Classic and not to forget, the Leadline Class! Exhibitors, trainers and spectators enjoyed an ice cream social along with the gorgeous summer weather. 

The fantastic show concluded with numerous special awards for grand champions and leading riders. 

Check the Showplace Productions website for the date of the 2020 Perfecta Farm Show and plan to get in on the fun!

Special thanks goes to all of the sponsors and to the amazing Perfecta Farm family for their assistance and support in organizing the show. A thanks also goes to the Midwest Dachshund Rescue for bringing out the rescued Dachshunds and for finding them loving homes.  The Perfecta Farm Show has raised thousands of dollars for the rescue through the fundraiser.
