Midwest Charity Horse Show Selects Judges



Midwest Charity Horse Show is thrilled to announce its 82nd annual show, June 13-17, 2023, in the Coliseum of Champions. Daily performances will be 10:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m., with our panel of judges: Marie Bouvet Howell, Murfreesboro, TN; Kelly Hulse, Columbia, MO; Jim Robertson, Stanton, KY; and Arabian judge, Tracy Lynch, Cross Plains, WI.

The prize list and forms will be available and entries will be accepted electronically through www.horseshowsonline.com. The schedule and list of hotels will be on Facebook as well. Printed prize lists can be mailed upon request.   

Our longtime, generous supporters enabled us to donate $20,000 to the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine’s Pediatric Fund from proceeds of its 2022 multi-breed show. We are grateful for and look forward to our sponsors’ continued support as it is more important than ever this year to put on a show of this caliber. 

Since its inception, the Midwest Charity Horse Show, an all-volunteer, nonsubsidized organization, has donated its annual proceeds to a Springfield area charity and has selected SIU School of Medicine’s Department of Pediatrics as its beneficiary. Since 1987, Midwest Charity Horse Show Association (MCHSA) in partnership with SIU School of Medicine’s Department of Pediatrics has been an integral part of helping children with chronic illnesses live happy, healthier lives. 

Proceeds from this year’s horse show help provide overnight lodging, food and/or transportation for families whose child is receiving treatment. The MCHSA endowment has given more than $277,000 to SIU School of Medicine's Department of Pediatrics since 1987.

For more information about the Midwest Charity Horse Show call Show Manager/President, Carole Kennedy at 217-414-1900. Those who are online can log-on to Facebook at www.facebook.com/midwestcharity to check for updates regarding the 2023 show.
