Fall and Spring Shows

Horse ShowsThe Johnson County 4-H Horse Committee in Cleburne, Texas sponsors several open horse shows throughout the year. These are open to any age exhibitor on any breed horse and we especially cater to the beginning exhibitor young or old. We have several families who have three generations showing with us which attests to our family atmosphere.

You will see backyard horses as well as World Champions at our shows. We are proud to offer a show that appeals to such a variety of exhibitors. It is not uncommon to have over 500 entries at ours shows. Of course these shows would not be possible without the numerous 4-H volunteers who work throughout the year to make it happen.

Fall Shows

The Fall Horse Shows consist of three shows sponsored by the 4-H Horse Committee . Formal show attire is not required. The late October show hosts our famous “Halloween Extravaganza” costume class which has grown to quite an “interesting event”. The 3 fall shows used to be Clinic/ show combination. These 3 shows now are full fledged shows with Halter, and performance and speed classes

Spring Shows

The Horse Committee also sponsors a “Spring Open Horse Show Series”. This consists of three to four shows, March, April and May and June and leads up to the District 8 Horse Show in June for our 4-H exhibitors. This is a more formal show series requiring appropriate English and Western show attire. Series awards, usually buckles,will be presented at our annual awards banquet in June. Hope you get a chance to come and show with us.

Our shows are held at the Shepherds Valley Cowboy Church on Highway 67 in Alvarado. This is a professional, oversized arena, with concrete parking, plenty of stalls, and RV hook ups, 2 practice areas, concession stand, overhead fans, everything we need to make every show a pleasant experience.
