- Open Horse shows
These shows draw people from North and South Carolina and provide children and adult riders from our community a forum to showcase their skills and earn points on the competitive circuit. The knowledge gained here will develop discipline, build self-confidence, teach horsemanship and promote sportsmanship. The show is managed mainly by volunteers and is an opportunity for educating the horse, rider and spectators. Take a look at the variety of show classes we offer, 2017 Open Horse Show Sheet.
