Tickets

The Minnesota Harvest Horse Show is the longest running indoor, exclusively hunter/jumper show in the U.S. The origin of the show was in 1974. The first Minnesota Aid to the Zoo Horse Show was held as a combination hunter/jumper and American Saddlebred show, benefitting the Minnesota Zoological Society. In 1978, the show was re-named the Minnesota Fall Charity Horse Show and became exclusively a hunter/jumper show. In 1992, it became the Minnesota Harvest Horse Show, and remains exclusively a hunter/jumper show.

As one of the longest running equestrian events in the Upper Midwest horse community, the Minnesota Harvest Horse Show, hosted by the Minnesota Hunter and Jumper Association, will mark its 25th anniversary on October 4-9, 2016, at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds Lee & Rose Warner Coliseum. The regional show attracts more than 150 riders from all over the Midwest to compete, with some classes offering up to $25,000 to the winning competitor. The Harvest Horse Show will culminate on October 8th at 7:30 p.m. with the featured Grand Prix of Minnesota event. The $25,000 Grand Prix draws top riders and horses from across the country to compete over jumps up to 5’ tall, from 5’ to 5’6” wide, and at a pace of 382 yards per minute for the $25,000 grand prize. In celebration of the 25th anniversary the Harvest Horse Show will feature special events, including a youth equine education day on Saturday August 8th. Plenty of shopping with great vendors, including Horse Crazy Market, food and entertainment rounds out the evening.

The Harvest Horse Show and Grand Prix, which are family friendly and open to the public, will raise proceeds to benefit two Minnesota non-profits. We Can Ride, a nonprofit therapeutic horseback riding organization that tailors programs to meet the needs of children and adults with disabilities. We Can Ride has four sites in the Twin Cities: Minnetonka; St. Paul (University of Minnesota); Delano and Marine on the St. Croix. For more information please visit their website at www.wecanride.org. This Old Horse is a private, volunteer based organization providing a haven to retired, rescues, and recovering horses. This Old Horse is located in Hastings, MN and you can find more information at thisoldhorse.org. These organizations are supported through volunteers and contributions.

2016 Is Our 25th Anniversary!
