Midwest Charity Horse Show Cancelling 2020 Show

The Board of Directors of the Midwest Charity Horse Show Association have made the decision to cancel the Midwest Charity Horse Show, June 9-13, 2020 in Springfield, Ill., at the Illinois State Fairgrounds.  

The annual Midwest Charity Horse Show, that both horseman and central Illinois have come to love and look forward to each year, must consider the well being of our exhibitors, staff, volunteers, vendors and spectators.  We recognize this is an enormous disappointment for our equine and local communities but this is the right decision for our organization, during this unprecedented time, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  

We remain committed to our charity, SIU School of Medicine's Camp COCO, the community of Springfield, Ill. and the Illinois State Fairgrounds venue.  We will share details soon of our 80th anniversary show in 2021. We are excited to welcome everyone back to our village-like equine complex and the Coliseum of Champions. 

If you have further questions, please contact President and Show Manager, Carole Kennedy at 217-414-1900 or Visit us on our facebook page or our website
