Church Show Dates and Officials

The Calvary Episcopal Charity Horse Show will be held May 30-June 1, 2013 at the Boone County Fairgrounds in Columbia, MO.  Toni Knight Utoft will judge all divisions of this multi-breed show, which is returning to the midwestern show scene after a two year hiatus. With an emphasis on fun and fellowship, qualifying classes will be offered for the UPHA Challenge Cup Finals, the Saddle & Bridle Shatner, Working Shatner, Hunter Classic and Pleasure Medallion Finals, the Good Hands Finals, and the MHSA Medallion Finals.

The “Church Show,” which, over its 19 year history, donated over $250,000 to charitable organizations, will support in 2013 the Boone County Family Health Center, providing dental health care for the medically under-served; the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri, and Doctors Without Borders. 

Columbia and Boone County have all amenities for a fun weekend, including a network of trails, local wineries, extensive shopping options, excellent golf courses, and proximity to the Lake of the Ozarks.

For information, please contact:  Sandy Backer, Show Secretary, at or Lenard Davenport, Show Manager, at or 417-861-9192.
