In honor of that generous and fun spirit, our show is again themed Jingle Bells Extravaganza. As in the past we will have many fun and creative ideas and have added some more to bring the FUN into showing! This year includes a decorating contest for ranches, door prizes, table auctions, and innovative prizes to help get the Excitement & Energy back into showing.

Please take advantage of this theme and buy your decorations, outfits etc. during the holiday season! We are continuing to work on creative ways to get costs down and to make it more reasonable for YOU to attend. We will continue to offer a double point halter, performance, fleece-on, bagged fleece classes and more in our show.

There will be camping options available and hotel are near the venue. Please direct any questions to our Show Superintendent, Donna Clark at
