Horse Shows

Welcome to the Sussex County Horse Show

The Sussex County Horse Show demonstrates 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.

The Sussex County Horse Show will be awarding two $1,000 scholarships this year. Applicants who have participated in the Sussex County horse shows within the last 3 years and can show proof of college acceptance are encouraged to apply. We are able to offer these scholarships again this year thanks to the generous donations from East Coast Equine Veterinary Service, LLC, and the support from our local exhibitors who choose to show with us during the year. The application deadline is July. Please contact Tiffany Kunz, Vice President, SCHS at for more information. Scholarships will be awarded on Saturday, August 10, 2024, during The Fair Horse Show. Scholarship winners are encouraged to attend the presentation in person but not mandatory.
