President’s Letter

Dear Friends of the Ludwig’s Corner Horse Show Association,

    The 2020 Ludwig’s Corner Horse Show will be a no spectator event with all attendees required to wear a mask unless mounted.  To limit attendees only one parent will accompany each child. We ask that each barn bring a large garbage bag and keep trash at the trailer. Please enter and pay online to reduce contact with our precious office staff.

    One of our exciting new events is Salt Beyond the Walls, a summer concert series that can be enjoyed within the vicinity of your vehicle. 

    Another new activity is Movie Night which takes us back to the drive-in movie era with memories of popcorn and pajamas in the back of a station wagon! 

     In an effort to expand public access we improved member benefits to include Member Schooling where both dressage and hunter schooling are available for a one-time $35 membership fee.  Barns are able to school en masse for $75.

     With the generosity of the Archie W. and Grace Berry Foundation and Susan Berry-Gorelli we are purchasing some new jumper jumps for our main ring as well as improvements to the staging area for the Country Spirit USA Concert.

    A huge thank you to the following friends for volunteering endless hours to make everything possible.    

  • Denise and Mark O’Connor for grounds mowing, maintenance and oversight.
  • Steve Bazil and Gale Rippel for weed patrol and coordinating our new events
  • George Cooney for showing up with lawnmower and power tools
  • George Parchall for handling water leaks and updating our reader board
  • Dean Barr for endless hours of mowing.
  • Barb Van Horn for coordinating all the member schooling sessions and work parities
  • Wendy Silverwood for world class social media content, horse show consulting   and awards tent mastery. Not to mention bringing air conditioning to our show office
  • Doug Curry for endless hours of professional horse show planning, budgeting and hand holding
  • Lynne Cooksey for a last-minute sponsorship drive that involved rewriting all traditional sponsorship opportunities single handedly!
