Spring Grove horse show

51 years Celebrating the horse

Welcome to the website for Spring Grove Horse Show. We host several 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 Sprig Grove Horse Show ongoing.

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.
