The Horse Show & Country Fair

Country Fair

Fun for the whole family! There’s so much to do at Ludwig’s Corner Horse Show and Country Fair.

Fun for all the kids in our Midway. Inflatables, rides and games will be enjoyed by the younger crowd.  Buy a wristband for all day fun!

Grab a bite from the food trucks, sit down in our beer garden and watch the competition.

And don’t forget about the shops! Many local and out of the area vendors come to share the same tent along the LCHS&CF midway. Shop these local artisans for home & garden, apparel, home decor, pet & equine supply, jewelry, gift & gourmet and more!

Entrance fee:
$10 per carload at the Main Gate.

Horse Show

The main reason we exist!  Since 1943 we are one of the best shows for area equestrians in the Brandywine & Delaware Valleys to compete in locally-rated competition in Hunters, Jumpers & Equitation.

The Horse Show starts at 8 am each day and continues thru to dusk.

Saturday  The Rosato Oval competition begins with Thoroughbreds from off the track showing in Hunters. Local horses ride over fences and under saddle in the Fox Hunters, Handy Hunters & Side Saddle.  Hunt Teams and our Family Class round out the day. 

Rings 2 & 3 feature Lead Line, Hunters,  Equitation and Medal classes throughout the day.
Hunters are judged on manners, way of moving, style, performance over fences, overall brilliance of the round. Suitability of mount and rider to count in pony classes.

Equitation classes are judged on the rider’s hands, seat and control of mount.

Sunday The Rosato Oval competition features Children’s & Adult Amateur Hunters, Low Hunters as well as riders and horses competing for ribbons and prize money in the LCHSA Hunter Derby and LCHSA Pony Derby.   Horses compete over fences typically found in the hunt field, riders are required to wear formal attire for the Derby.  The annual Carriage Exhibition & Pleasure Drive is featured mid-afternoon.

Rings 2 & 3 feature more Hunter & Equitation classes.

Monday The Rosato Oval competition features exciting Show Jumping action all day. Our signature class of the day is the LCHSA Jumper Classic Mini-Prix.   Jumpers are judged on time and clear rounds, lest they are penalized for time faults and downed rails.

Rings 2 & 3 feature Ponies and Horses competing in more Hunter divisions, Itty Bitty Jumpers, Pony Jumpers, Hopeful Jumpers and TIP Jumpers.

The Trophy & Awards tent is located next to the Show Office.
