Our priority is to properly and safely park the large amount of goosenecks, oversize trailers and the occasional semi-tractor/trailers that pull onto the property each day. Parking is especially at a premium on Labor Day with the Car Show.
In order to keep horse trailer traffic flowing smoothly and get them parked properly and efficiently, NO PASSENGER VEHICLES will be permitted to ENTER the horse van/trailer parking area – even “just to drop something off”. All cars & non-tow vehicles must park in Main Parking – No Exceptions. Please download & display your 2020 parking pass on your dash.
PLEASE help your trainer by planning ahead and ensuring all your tack and show supplies are in the tow vehicle or horse trailer before leaving for the show.
We will have parking assistants in golf carts to help shuttle from Main Parking if needed – simply ask an assistant to radio one for you.
Please note the horse show does not permit outside shade canopies/tents to be erected near the schooling & competition rings. These are only allowed in Trailer parking, and at Stabling as arranged with the stabling manager.
Consider reserving Box Seating that overlooks all the show rings for family & barn members to spectate in comfort & stash show supplies. These shaded tented seating for 6-8 ppl are reserved for the entire weekend – book one for the Barn!

The Winner’s Circle is located at the end of the Main Ring, by the Trophy & Awards Tent. All riders may take photos with their horses and ribbons, awards and trophies in this area. A second photo backdrop is located on the hill near the Show Office. Please note that there will be no official show photographer. Exhibitors are free to contract with a professional photographer to shoot their classes. Photographers are welcome to post their contact info on the LCHS Facebook Page or at the Show Office. Photographers are not allowed inside the exhibition rings.
Trophy winners at Ludwig’s Corner Horse Show are presented with beautiful trophies which are then engraved with their names next to the past winners. Trophies are retained by the horse show committee. In order to keep the history of the show alive and part of the local community, LCHS engraves & displays the trophies all year in two separate display cases at the crossroads of routes 401 and 100 in Ludwig’s Corner. Thanks to S&T Bank and Ludwig’s Grille & Oyster Bar for being a part of one of the longest running horse shows in Chester County and showcasing our trophies inside their businesses.
Reserved, shaded tented seating with a table and 6 chairs for use over the entire weekend is available for purchase. These are located above The Rosato Oval and above Ring 2. This reserved seating is perfect for exhibitors’ families with small children or elderly relatives. Or book one as a Barn to assemble, socialize and watch the show in comfort. Pets are welcome but must be leashed. Personal pop-up canopies or shade tents are not permitted to be pitched near the competition or schooling rings.
