News from Germantown Charity Horse Show


The 59th Germantown Charity Horse Show will be held June 12 – 16 this year with Don Judd of Land O’Lakes, FL, judging the Saddlebreds, Hackneys, Roadsters and Academy. Charles Byron will return as horse show manager for the above and Walking Horses, and Kent Moeller will continue overseeing the Hunter/Jumper section.


About $15,000 of prize money has been added throughout the schedule this year, and a complete prize list and forms will be available for review and downloading on the web site at The prize list will also be mailed out in early February.


Rich in tradition and bursting in atmosphere, the Germantown Charity Horse Show remains a one of a kind experience for most exhibitors. Its Southern hospitality is well known around the country, and this year’s show will be no exception. A Welcome Reception with live music has been planned for Monday night as everyone is getting settled in for the week. A Welcome Wagon will be making its rounds again daily providing help and refreshments. Other daily events include the Morning Call and the Ice Cream Party. The Wine and Cheese Parties proven popular in the years past will be on the schedule again this year as well as the Fish Fry on Friday night.


Germantown is conveniently located just outside of Memphis, Tenn., offering a variety of attractions just minutes away from the show grounds. There is Graceland for those who haven’t seen Elvis’ home yet, and for those who have, but need to see it again. There are the landmark Peabody Hotel and the Rendez-Vous and Corky’s barbeque restaurants. Not to mention the Tunica Casinos that are within a short drive for the adventurous.


And of course this year is no exception, the GCHS officials with the help of the City of Germantown have been busy perfecting the show grounds with numerous improvements.
