Piper Klemm, Ph.D., will join the judging panel for the inaugural Allstar Spring Horse Show, to be held May 16 at Ludwigs Corner in Glenmoore, PA.
A lifelong equestrian and student of the sport, Klemm has dedicated much of her career to furthering her equestrian education and to sharing that education with others as the owner and publisher of The Plaid Horse magazine and as an equestrian studies professor.
Klemm is also a continual advocate for increasing the accessibility of horse showing and for promoting fun, positive horse show experiences, which is why she is proud to be a part of the first Allstar Spring Horse Show and the Allstar Horse Show Association.
“The Allstar Horse Show Association (AHSA) is all about offering fun and affordable horse show opportunities, particularly for young or green riders and horses, which is something that I believe has so much value,” said Klemm. “I’m really looking forward to judging at the inaugural horse show, and I’m appreciative to the AHSA for the opportunity to be a part of what they’re doing.”
In addition to a range of hunter, jumper and equitation classes, the Allstar Spring Horse Show will feature the Allstar Superstar Milan Medal, sponsored by The Plaid Horse, as well as three “fun and games” classes such as dollar bareback and egg and spoon.
