Spring Grove horse show

50 years Celebrating the horse

Welcome to the website for Spring Grove Horse Show. We host 8 open Horse Shows each year (open to all breeds) at the Spring Grove Horse Fair Park in Spring Grove, Illinois.

Spectator admission is free! Enjoy a picnic with the family in the country. Picnic tables are available outside, as well as under the covered pavilion. Concessions are provided on site.

Our shows include: Hunter, Dressage, English/Western Performance, Speed and a Fun & Action Show.

Please come out to join us this year. Our shows are a lot of fun. We strive to provide the best atmosphere for all participants and spectators. Our ribbons and prizes are top-notch, our outdoor arena is beautifully kept and everyone always has a smile and is willing to lend a hand to make your experience positive. Bring your seasoned show horse or a green youngster.

Volunteers are always needed. Whether it is for one show or 8 shows, a few hours or all day, we have a lot of jobs for everyone! Plus, it is a great way to make friends in the horse community. No horse experience required—just a smile!

Spring Grove Horse Show is an Illinois not-for-profit.

Please support our sponsors. Their generosity helps keep the history and tradition of Spring Grove Horse Show ongoing.

Text Box:  2014 promises to be an exciting year for Spring Grove Horse Show! On July 27th, we will celebrate 50 years of exhilarating shows, lifelong friendships and many wonderful memories. Travel back with us and reminisce about our early years and the changes that have made Spring Grove Horse Show what it is today—an organization dedicated to providing new riders with an opportunity to learn and grow. We are thrilled to serve the riders and give back to the community that has supported us for 50 years.  Call (815) 388-5009 for more information. 
 We were very fortunate and excited to have R.A. Adams Enterprises as a platinum sponsor for our 2013 High Point Awards.  $400 was awarded to the overall high point winner. The high point winner in each age group, excluding the overall high point winner,  received $150 and the runner up in each age group received $50. The age groups were 13 years and under, 14-18 years and 19 years and over. The overall high point winner was not eligible for age group high point awards.  See photos of our high point winners of 2013 on the “Show Results” page.

The Spring Grove Horse Show has always been, and still is, an entirely volunteer organization. Since its inception in 1964, our organization has partnered with local community groups to provide funds for area parks, local schools and other local improvements. Spring Grove Horse Show’s current community support includes financial contributions to many community organizations including Spring Grove Fire Protection District, Spring Grove Police Department, PADS, PTO and Pioneer Center. We also work together with local youth organizations.
