BRCHSlogo91st BLOWING ROCK CHARITY HORSE SHOW – American Saddlebred Division – At Mayview Park in Blowing Rock.  The Blowing Rock Charity Horse Show is among the oldest continually operating horse shows in America. The 2014 event will mark the show’s 91st consecutive year. Begun in 1923 by Lloyd M. Tate, a seasonal livery stable operator and show horse trainer from Pinehurst, the Blowing Rock Show moved to its current Mayview Park location in 1928.

Known throughout the horse show world for its charm and hospitality, Blowing Rock has become a favorite stop on the summer circuit for both professional and amateur riders. The horses in particular seem to perform at their best in the cooler summer climate of the North Carolina mountains.

Considered the highlight of Blowing Rock’s summer season, the three weeks of horse shows will bring to the High Country 600 horses, 2,000 visitors, and an economic impact in excess of 7.7 million dollars.

In addition to its long tradition of supporting local charities, one of the primary attractions of the Blowing Rock Horse Show is a daily show schedule that limits competition to daylight hours, leaving ample time in the evenings and between sessions for visitors to enjoy the town and surrounding High Country attractions.

Spectator admission is $5 and supports the charitable work of the Blowing Rock Rotary Club. Children under 12 are free. The daily admission charge, with in-and-out privileges, is Thursday through Sunday for the Saddlebred Division, and Wednesday through Sunday for both Hunter & Jumper Divisions. Exhibitors and spectators alike should not miss Vendors Row along the backstretch which offers an unusual High Country shopping experience.
