Exciting Enhancements for the 2017 River Ridge Charity Horse Show



The River Ridge Charity Horse Show, scheduled for April 26-29, 2017 at the Ohio Exposition Center in Columbus, Ohio, is planning numerous exciting changes for 2017. 

A three judge panel has been selected, and the judges will include Nancy Becker, Matthew Roberts and Lisa Waller. River Ridge offers a comprehensive class schedule for Saddlebreds, Morgans, Hackneys, Friesians, Parade, an Open Division, and a full line of equitation classes. The Prize List and additional information can be found online at www.riverridgehs.org, and www.horseshowsonline.com

In an effort to save time and make the process easier for owners and/or trainers online entries can be made at www.horseshowsonline.com beginning March 19, 2017. 

River Ridge has always been known as the exhibitor’s show. River Ridge will be providing extensive hospitality, including our Friday night Exhibitor’s party generously sponsored by Helen Rich. 

Steve Demjen will once again have his popular Cornhole Tournament. In addition, www.seehorsevideo.com will be providing a free webcast of the show, and Kuhlwein Services will provide pre-bedding and stall mats upon request. 

As an incentive to our trainers, a friend of the show is offering on Saturday night two cash drawings. Drawn at random, any trainer bringing and showing 10 or more horses will be eligible for a $300 cash drawing and any trainer bringing and showing any number up to nine horses will be eligible for a $200 cash drawing. Finally, the trainer that travels the farthest to show at River Ridge will receive a $100 gas card. 

River Ridge will still be sponsoring the Central Ohio Diabetes Women’s Board which sponsors Camp Hamwi. Camp Hamwi is an exceptional summer camp for juveniles aged seven to 18 who live with diabetes.
