SHOW YOUR STANDARDBRED!

SPHO-ME SPONSORS YEAR-END AWARDS FOR STANDARDBREDS COMPETING AS PLEASURE HORSES:

SPHO-ME is the proud sponsor of the MHA Life After Racing trophy and  New England Standardbred Awards – a comprehensive Standardbred recognition program for the Northeastern United States.  There are many opportunities to get out there with your Standardbred, participate, and demonstrate the versatility of this adaptable breed – all the while having a great time doing it.

There are many different Categories that you can use to make your search of the Calendar easier.  Click on the “Categories” icon below and you can select one or more categories to make your search easier.  Also keep in mind that a show can have more than one category assigned to it so you may see the same show even though you have selected different options.  Lets say you want to look for Eventing and Show Jumping shows, you would click on Categories -> then click on Eventing -> then click on Show Jumping and you’ll see that both choices now have a darker background and the Categories icon is a different color.  To remove you selection just click on it again, once you do it once or twice you should get the hang of it.

All times in the calendar are approximate, please check with the show management for actual times.  We’ll try to keep the information as up to date as possible but please be sure to check with the event organizers for the most up to date information.
