The Blowing Rock Charity Horse Show is an 86-year tradition in the mountainous resort area of Western North Carolina. With such attractions as Grandfather Mountain, gem mining, zip lining, top-class golf and other outdoor activities, the area is a favorite destination for tourists and equestrians alike who congregate each summer.
The two-week hunter/jumper show and one-week American Saddlebred show are held on the L.M. Tate Show Grounds in J.E. Broyhill Park, a stone’s throw from the quaint village of Blowing Rock.
