Summer Solstice Horse Show Date set for 2019

Summer Solstice Horse Show Association LLC was founded by Martha Thompson Hoyt and Ryan Vogt in 2018 to provide a fund one day “B” circuit horse show with an American Saddlebred emphasis but open to all breeds of horses with a society horse show feel. The goal is to have a fun and competitive horses show with something offered for everyone.

In response to the requests from exhibitor and trainers in the area looking for a show to introduce new riders to showing and earn “B” circuit points, Summer Solstice Horse Show Association LLC was created. The following organizations will recognize points earned at Summer Solstice: American Saddlebred Association of Wisconsin (ASAW), Illinois American Saddlebred Pleasure Horse Association (IASPHA) and Mid-America Horse Show Association (MASHA). 

The first Summer Solstice Horse Show will be hold on Saturday, June 22, 2019 at Fox Valley Saddle Association facility at 44W300 Rohrsen Road, Hampshire, Illinois. The facility has both an indoor arena 176’ x 77’ with an attached warm-up area 80’ x 60’ as well as a 250’ x 135’ outdoor arena with a 135’ x 75’ outdoor warm-up area.  It has yet to be determined whether the show will be held indoors or outdoors. There are 100 permanent stalls available and showing out of trailer WILL be allowed! #makehorseshowsfunagain
