Sponsors Support Pennsylvania National Horse Show’s Heritage

Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania National Horse Show continues its legacy and history for the 77th year, thanks to the many generous sponsors who support the US Equestrian Heritage Competition. The equestrian world’s top competitors will head to the PA Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, PA, October 12-22, 2023, where champions will be honored and will see their names added to the horse show’s lauded history books.

The continued support of sponsors has enabled the show to expand riding areas for exhibitors to include two show arenas with ample warm-up rings, great footing and an additional large schooling arena – all under one roof – with a large lunging area located outdoors.

In addition, the show provides EMO Terrace Table VIP seating options and complimentary exhibitor meals in the Exhibitor Lounge, with bar service available. Ring-side appetizers are an evening bonus treat thanks to great sponsors. Not to forget the fantastic horses, complimentary treats are available in the gate area to reward those great performances. 

Decades of history can be seen on the engravings of the numerous trophies handed out to the winners along with keepsake awards, crystal, coolers, pillows and ribbons. Names of noteworthy horses and riders are listed and honored annually thanks to donations from sponsors throughout the decades.

Best of all, donations from sponsors to the PNHS Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, allow the Foundation to award grants to qualifying therapeutic riding programs and equine rescues. These grants allow worthy programs to supply much-needed services to equines and to individuals in need including children, adults and veterans.
