The Wisconsin Charity Classic Horse Show, is a 2-day, all breed open show.  It will be held at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds in Jefferson, WI, on Saturday, June 17, and Sunday, June 18, 2017.   The purpose of the show is to provide a fun, low-stress venue where exhibitors can practice for the upcoming show season and get some pointers from our judges.  The prize list, entry and sponsorship forms, and show information are all available as downloadable forms at the bottom of the page.

Sunday, June 18th:  Ring classes.  Open classes in in-hand, driving, trail, jumping, english, western, academy and walk-trot categories. The schedule also has Morgan in-hand, Justin Morgan Standard, and Morgan English and Western Pleasure Classes. High point awards will be for High Point Morgan, Open Horse, Jr. Exhibitor, and Sr. Exhibitor.

Three new classes are offered this year: A Gamblers Choice driving class, an English Go As You Please class and a Western Go As You Please class.   The Go As You Please classes are pleasure classes judged on the horse/pony, to be shown both ways of the ring at a walk and “go as you please”.  Go as You Please is whatever gait you think your horse does the best.  You choose to trot, canter, pace, running walk or whatever gait your horse does best.  Horses are judged on manners, way of going, and responsiveness to the rider. Formal attire is NOT required for these two classes, however, long pants, shirts with sleeve and boots with heels ARE required (no tennis shoes, shorts or ball caps).

Ring Judge:  Dana Panella

Sponsorship:  A large part of the financial success of the show depends on sponsorship.  A $100 sponsorship entitles the sponsor to have their name announced with four classes and also to display a banner that the Sponsor provides in the show ring.  Individual class sponsorships are $25 and High Point and Championship Class Sponsorships are $35.

Proceeds from the show benefit Veterans Equine Trail Service (V.E.T.S.)  and LifeStriders Therapeutic Riding Center.
