We Need Your Input
The time has come to begin our 2024 show season. We could really use input and help from the local horse show community as the show season progresses. We would like input regarding what dates are picked, types of shows run, and other important decisions. The horse shows will take place at Spring Grove Horse Fair Park in Spring Grove, Illinois. Classes will range from halter and trail to english, western and ranch. Is anyone interested in another riding discipline at our events? The shows will begin at 8 am and will end after our final class of the day. We look forward to seeing everyone for a fun, horse-oriented 2024 show season. Show location address is Spring Grove Horse Fair Park, 8105 Blivin Street in Spring Grove, Illinois. For additional information please call (224)285-0288.
Donors Needed for Spring Grove Horse Shows
Help Us Keep Our Shows Running!
Spring Grove Horse Show is in need of donors. In order to keep our class fees reasonable, the club needs donations to purchase ribbons, trophies, office goods, muck buckets and pay our park rental fees. Our generous donors help to defray these expenses and keep them at a minimum. Spring Grove Horse Show welcomes donations from club friends and companies. Please consider giving to Spring Grove Horse Show. See the "sponsors" tab at the top of this page to support our shows.

Searching for a Platinum Sponsor!
Spring Grove Horse Show is grateful for the support that R.A. Adams, our platinum sponsor, has given us in previous years. Spring Grove Horse Show is searching for a new platinum sponsor to help reward rider accomplishments now that R.A. Adams is gone. The platinum sponsor gives our competitors a wonderful year-end high point award for all of their hard work and dedication to the sport of riding. The generosity of a platinum sponsor also allows Spring Grove Horse Show to continue the tradition of holding local schooling shows that benefit riders and our local community. Call (224)285-0288 if you're interested in becoming a platinum sponsor. To learn about being a Spring Grove Horse Show sponsor, click here.
