Pin Oak Charity Horse Show - “Over 60 Years of Helping Children”


Pin Oak Charity Horse Show will take place at the beautiful Great Southwest Equestrian Center in Katy, Texas, a part of the Houston area. This will be Week One of the two week extravaganza, beginning March 22nd and ending March 26th featuring the American Saddlebred, Hackney Ponies, Roadsters, Andalusians, Pura Raza Espanola, Lusitano, and Welsh Ponies. Week Two features one of the country’s top Hunter/Jumper events.  The prize money offered, $5000 in the Five Gaited Stake, $3000 in the Three Gaited Stake, and $1500 in the Fine Harness Stake, as well as top money offered in all divisions and classes is only one reason exhibitors should mark this show on their list of shows for the spring.  Entertainment for the whole family includes the breed classes, as well as several exciting jumping events, culminating with a $30,000 Grand Prix prior to Saturday evening’s Stake Night performance.


Nelson Green of Nicholasville, Kentucky will judge the ASB, Hackney ponies, roadsters, and equitation classes.  Glenn Petty will once again manage both WEEK ONE and WEEK TWO of the show.  The Andalusian breed was added last year and this year spectators will have the chance to view the Para Raza Espanola Horse, the Pure Spanish Horse.


The Para Raza Espanola is the forbearer of many of today’s most popular breeds in the Americas, including the Quarter Horse, Appaloosa, Mustang, Paso Fino, Peruvian Paso, Azteca, as well as strongly influencing the Lippizan and the Friesian. This breed originated in Spain in 1567, and was known as “The Royal Horse of Europe”.  Pin Oak’s unusual assortment of breeds makes for an interesting spectacle.


Top notch hospitality and entertainment makes for a memorable show experience.  The Sponsor’s Club is ringside…not a minute of the show to be missed! The show committees do an incredible job making it not only a beautiful show, but one that holds many fun activities for the entire family.


This year the show will once again benefit Texas Children’s Hospital and the Ronald McDonald House.  The 2005 show donated $35,000 to these charities and the goal is to double that amount in 2006.
