Welcome to the Sussex County Horse Show
Check the Fairgrounds Event Calendar for our Benefit Shows and for other equestrian events.
Horses have always been a big part of the Fair. Back in 1919, when horses were still more common than cars, the Branchville Riding Club formed. Since then, this event has evolved into the 10-day spectacular of the Sussex County Fair!
In fact, the Sussex County Fair was called the The Sussex County Horse Show from 1936 to 1940, and the Sussex County Farm and Horse Show from 1940 to 1999. The pairing between the Fair and the Horse Show started all the way back in 1923! The change of the name highlights the Fair’s commitment to more than just horses, emphasizing other agriculture, community and youth development, and family fun!
Today, the Horse Show continues to demonstrate the excellence and commitment of the community to these wonderful animals and this traditional event. The Sussex County Horse Show has a series of horse shows held between April and October that help raise funds to do maintenance to the facility and offer new scholarships to area students. These shows are growing and the Association is constantly looking for new members to help make the shows in the future the best ever.
