Welcome to our shows!  The Johnston County Horse Show Series or JCHSS as it has become known over the years is an open horse show that offers it’s competitors and their equine companions a show experience like no other.  We believe in the philosophy that ALL horses can do ALL things within the diversity and distinction of their breed and thus should be presented with all opportunities to do so.  We have “opened” the show program to as many breeds as possible in which all breeds can showcase their talents.  Riders of all ages and skill levels have divisions that are suitable to promote their talents and disciplines to allow them to expand and enrich their experience. 

Believing in family, we promote and encourage an atmosphere that is competitive while remaining family oriented and friendly.  High on our priority list is the ideal of sportsmanship and fair play among our competitors and spectators.  The shows offer everyone a place to visit and “catch up” on the happenings since the last show  while making new adventures for the day.  We always welcome new faces to our show and are excited for the opportunity to see you at our next event.!
