You don’t want to miss this segment of the Blowing Rock Charity Horse Show! The Saddlebred classes are loaded with chrome and flash. The atmosphere at a Saddlebred show is electric, with spectators shouting encouragement and rooting for their favorites from the stands. The most exciting classes are the Three and Five Gaited Open Championship classes. Equally exciting are the Roadster classes, shown both under saddle and in harness. Competing with the big, beautiful Saddlebreds are the Hackney ponies, just as flashy as their larger counterparts. Also not to be missed is the fine harness division, where carriages and harness can be compared to the cost of your house! And the Frisians–gentle giants of the show
We welcome you to the 40th edition of the Indianapolis Charity Horse Show. We are hoping to see all the familiar faces and new ones. We welcome you all! The show returns this year to the Marsh Blue Ribbon Pavilion at the Indiana State Fairgrounds after a one year hiatus from this location. The large indoor ring is in a well lit air conditioned building with reserved seating around the ring. Vendors and a concession stand are located around the ring too. Stabling is located in adjacent buildings with a large warm up ring.
The best way to describe the Buckeye Sweepstakes Horse Show is “Where National Champions are made”! It is also considered the largest Class A Arabian horse show in the country other than the Scottsdale show. It has always been one of the most innovative shows since its inception in 1963. The home of the Buckeye has always been the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus, Ohio, and always on Memorial Day Weekend. The Buckeye slogan “WHERE NATIONAL CHAMPIONS ARE MADE!” is proven year after year. If you can win at the Buckeye, you can be a National Winner. The caliber of horses is the best, especially in the performance divisions.
