President’s Letter



Ludwig’s Corner Horse Show Association began in 1943 when 5 local families donated land, money and time to create a local horseshow.  That first show featured eighty-eight horses and some local riders would sometimes simply hack over to the show grounds and ride home at the end of the day.  Eighty years later we are still enjoying this historical tradition and have much to be thankful for.  

First, we must make a heartfelt thank you to George Parshall who has been our Director of Technical Services, show paramedic and year around volunteer since 1955.  How do we adequately say thank you for a lifetime of service?  George passed away this winter and leaves behind a legacy of volunteerism that will be hard to match.

After that we must thank the Archie W. and Grace Berry Foundation for numerous contributions over the years.  Most recently for a beautiful new judge’s booth and a water storage system that will allow us to keep the dust in check at all our various events.

Eighty years of volunteers adds up to thousands of individuals. These people continue to give their free time to help at work parties, including neighbors, school students, groups, organizations and local professionals. Many fond memories and friendships have been developed on these 33 acres.

This year to commemorate our 80th anniversary we’re coming up with some new and exciting 

events for our Ludwig’s Corner Horse Show and Country Fair, held over Labor Day weekend.

We can’t wait to see you there!
