Spring Classic

The 2014 Sahara Sands Spring Classic will be held May 2nd-4th at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in St Paul!

After consulting with Dr. Terry Arnesen DVM at the Sillwater Vetinary Clinic, we have decided to continue with the show as scheduled!   Dr. Arnesen feels that the risk of horses contracting the EHV-1 outbreak at the Sahara Sands show is very low.

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!
