SUMMER’S END 2017 HAS BEEN CANCELLED posted by on September 6, 2017

Due to the impending hurricane and many cancelled entries with barns evacuating north, we have cancelled the 2017 Summer’s End Horse Show. Although we had a few strong exhibitors that were still planning on coming after seeing today’s spaghetti models, we were down to less than 15 horses and could not justify the cost of the facility, officials and other expenses.

All entry fees and sponsorships will be refunded and we look forward to a bigger and better show in next year! Please put us on your calendars for September 7-9, 2018.

We do have some great Summer’s End t-shirts available for purchase! Use the handy-dandy form below to order yours and we will even include shipping!

Use the button below to choose your size, when you click ADD TO CART it will take you to PayPal, where you can choose your quantity. If you want more than one size, just click CONTINUE SHOPPING and it will bring you back to this page to choose another size for your shopping cart. When you are done with all of your choices, you can choose to checkout using PayPal OR use any credit or debit card by choosing “Pay without a PayPal account”.

Unisex Crew Neck Shirt


Due to the impending hurricane, the show schedule has been REVISED to begin on Thursday evening. CLICK HERE to download the revised schedule.

We are moving the start time of the show to Thursday evening. We will then run three sessions on Friday and one on Saturday morning. IF AT ANY TIME, management deems necessary, we will cancel remaining classes and send everyone home. We cannot move the show date (no availability) and cancelling entirely will leave some horses unqualified for the Grand National. We hope this option will work for everyone. There will be NO EXCEPTIONAL CLASSES, this division has been cancelled. The Academy session will remain on Saturday afternoon (although it may ultimately be cancelled). EventMix will not be attending for photos/video, however, Tami Johnson will try to step in where possible and will post proofs online at tamijohnson.com. Download the new schedule using the link above.

The Saturday night party is cancelled. The show will provide food/refreshments on Friday. There will not be a progressive party, however, feel free to party on your own in the aisles!

DUE TO THE LIVESTOCK PAVILION TAKING ON EVACUATED HORSES FROM DOWN SOUTH, and of course due to the number of barns that have already cancelled out, we have moved everyone forward on the stall charts. Please note the latest version of the stall chart posted below. We apologize for your stalls not being “the usual”, but we needed to leave the back of the barn open for them to bring in the displaced horses (all of which will have current Coggins, etc.). If you pre-ordered bedding, it will be in front of your stalls tonight, so you should be able to move in anytime tomorrow.

ALSO NOTE: The main ring will not be available to work horses on Wednesday evening. You will be able to get back in there on Thursday morning. You will be able to use the outdoor rings.
