The Blowing Rock Charity Horse Show began in 1923. Originally the event lasted for five days, but over the years it has grown to cover a period of three weeks. The show is held at Blowing Rock Equestrian Preserve. Steeped in tradition, this event has consistently attracted annual exhibitors from all over the United States and several foreign countries and has the distinction of being recognized as the oldest continuous outdoor horse show in America. All of those associated with the show welcome you to the "Highlight of Blowing Rock's Summer Season." You can enjoy the show from the famous grandstand, from your own special box, or along the rail at the In Gate.
