The following classes have been added to the Sahara Sands Schedule!

035A. HA/AA Park Horse

138A. Arabian Park Horse

We are still going ahead with the Sahara Sands Spring Classic as planned. Pre-Entries, need to be postmarked before or on April 9th. If the EHV-1 outbreak worsens and we are forced to cancel the show because of it, all pre paid entries will be refunded.

Also, the Minnesota State Fairgrounds has always done a very thorough cleaning and sanitization between any two horse events that are held at the fairgrounds...and this year will be no different. After the Horse Expo, the barns will be cleaned and sanitized before any horses for Sahara Sands arrive.

Please pass this information along to anyone who may be interested. Thanks from everyone at Sahara Sands, and we can't wait to see you in May!

Sahara Sands was formed over twenty years ago, and each year we put on an Arabian horse show on the first full weekend in May.  Our goal is to put on the best Arabian and Half-Arabian horse show possible, a show that is friendly Sands Ribbonsand easy for exhibitors. We want to encourage families to get involved with the Arabian and Half Arabian horse.                 

The 2013 Sahara Sands Spring Classic Show was held at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in St. Paul, Minnesota, May 3-5th, 2013. The show was a huge success with over 300 exceptional Arabian and Half-Arabian horses competing in events such as Trail, Reining, Western Pleasure, Hunter Pleasure, English Pleasure, and Costume!  With just shy of 150 classes in the 3 day schedule, there was certainly something for everyone to enjoy!  Sahara Sands wants to thank all of our exhibitors and spectators that came out for the 2013 Spring Classic!  We all look forward to seeing everyone again in 2014!
