In 2008, The Standardbred Showcase held its first annual Standardbred horse show, which was a huge success.

The sixth edition of the South Western Ontario Standardbred Horse Show, will be held at the Ridgetown Agricultual Society (Ridgetown Fairgrounds).  The fairgrounds are located behind Tim Hortons.  The address is 20480 Victoria Road, Ridgetown ON N0P 2C0 (If you are using a GPS, enter 180 Main Street E).    Just 5 minutes off the 401.  Click here for show details




 5 - Shows that will count for year end awards
We are pleased to announce this year's Series for Standardbreds will contain 5 shows. You must show 3 shows in order to accumulate points for year end awards.

 All of the shows will be under the Standardbred Showcase umbrella but will be operating as individual shows with the points counting for year end awards.

 What's new this year for the series?  Click here to find out.

All the above shows will be run under the same rules which will be available on each web site. Helmets will be required in all Games classes and obstacle driving. Any person 18 and under will be required to wear a helmet and proper footwear while mounted any where on the grounds.



 Rule change

 After much discussion, we are going to reverse the rule change we made in the winter to change the Junior age from 18 years to 16 years. Any reference to youth or junior will now be 18 and under again.

 It is too late to change any of the printed material now including the entries, so anywhere it states 16 years, it should state 18 years.

Sorry for any inconvenience and confusion

Please remember to get your liability insurance as you will need this to show. We recommend the Ontario Equestrian Federation for the best rates.

We look forward to another successful year in the promotion of Standardbreds as a viable riding/pleasure driving mount. Standardbred Showcase is a registered non profit organization operated solely by volunteers.
