Nearly 1,200 of the finest American and international show horses will gather at the recently expanded Farm Show Arena in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, for the 60th annual Pennsylvania National Horse Show, October 13-22, 2005. Penn National is America’s largest indoor multi-breed horse show and one of the equestrian world’s premier events. The show draws tens of thousands of horse enthusiasts, who travel from throughout the region and across the U.S. to enjoy the unparalleled competition, special attractions, excellent shopping, and the chance to see the stars of equine sports in action.


For the fourth year, the Pennsylvania National Horse Show will host the National Horse Show ‘Good Hands’ Saddle Seat Equitation Championship, which was held for 70 years at the National Horse Show in New York City.


New this year is the American Saddlebred Horse Association Northeastern Regional Championships, awards for the top American Saddlebred horses from the Northeastern U.S. region that stretches from Virginia to Maine, and the Pennsylvania National Horse Show Saddle Seat Equitation Challenge.


Shopping is a favorite pastime of spectators and competitors alike. The show features more than 50 vendors from across the country who offer hours of shopping for exclusive apparel, furniture, fine arts, gifts, equestrian supplies and much more.
