Please join us – as a rider, sponsor, or spectator – and celebrate horses! The 19th Annual Berkshire Humane Society Horse Show will be held Sunday, August 29, at Overmeade Farm, 940 East Street, Lenox. The event begins at 9AM sharp!
The show is recognized by the Western Massachusetts Professional Horseman’s Association (WNEPHA) and includes competitions for all levels of riding. The show hosts hunter, equitation and jumper divisions. It will feature hunter and equitation classes in thirteen divisions. The equitation divisions include: Short and Long Stirrup, Mini, Adult, Limit, and Open. The hunter divisions include: Novice Junior, Low/Adult, Children’s and Junior/Amateur. Jumper and Open Pleasure divisions will also be offered.
The Judge’s Award will be presented to the competitor who exhibits the best turn-out of horse and rider and demonstrates good sportsmanship and horsemanship. Prizes will be awarded. In addition, a Hunter Classic will be held which will award cash prizes to the top finishers.
If you are not a “horse person,” please join us anyway! We will be conducting raffles and selling our merchandise throughout the festive day!
Since its inception, this event has raised over $150,000 for Berkshire Humane Society. If you would like to be a horse show sponsor, or receive information, please contact Berkshire Humane Society at (413) 447-7878.
