Oshkosh Charity for Fourth of July Fun



There’s no better way to spend your Fourth of July weekend than at the 2008 Oshkosh Charity Horse Show! Held at the Sunnyview Expo Center July 2-5, this “A”-rated show offers more than 100 classes for the American Saddlebred including Grand National, Stake and academy classes in the large, beautiful arena that will set the stage for four days of exciting performances.

Fun for our exhibitors and families is always a priority as we offer some of the following special features:

Private, ring side tables catered by The Seasons restaurant. Get your reservations in early as space is limited.

Our fabulous yet healthy concessions offering wraps, sandwiches, and desserts prepared by the award-winning restaurant The Seasons.

Our Friday night catered exhibitor party and our Saturday afternoon blue ribbon Fourth of July BBQ with a special ice cream social.

Note to all exhibitors: With the unexpected and tragic passing of our friend and fellow competitor Tony Ray, we are proud to announce some very special donations. In remembrance of Tony’s passion for young horses, renowned sculptor Douwe Blumberg, will be creating one of his amazing works which will serve as the trophy for the 2 year old fine harness class. In addition, a redeemable certificate for a jog sheet, in the winner’s choice of colors, will be provided by RaDon.

We welcome our return exhibitors and invite new exhibitors to experience this national caliber show featuring excellent accommodations for both horses and guests!
