our 63nd Anniversary!…….Established in 1950,
The PEHSC is a multi-breed horse show circuit serving the four-state
areas of Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Nebraska. We have an
extensive point system for our exhibitors and members to encourage
participation. High Point recipients are recognized with awards at
our annual Year End Awards Banquet held in January. We publish an
annual show book, listing our show dates and show bills. This book
is freely distributed at our Spring Kick Off and Tack Sale; as well
as available at most of the affiliated shows.
The Pony Express Horse Show Circuit is proud to present the
William Loftin Memorial Scholarship to one of our youth exhibitors. We
encourage all of our youth to participate and make the scholarship a
goal. This Scholarship is awarded at our January Awards Banquet.

December 7, 2013-Board of Directors Show Date Meeting and Election
of Officers. The time will be 1pm at a place yet to be confirmed. I
will let everyone know this information as soon as possible.
The Pony Express Horse Show Circuit is
attempting to help our member shows to attract more people to their
shows in 2014. Each show committee was very grateful for those
individuals who came out and supported their shows this year.
However, the number of exhibitors was down and we are all trying to
work together to identify the cause for low turnout and possible
solutions as well. As well as exhibitor numbers, high point
nominations were down too, so this will hopefully help us improve
these numbers as well.
We have listed below questions that will
be of great help in our upcoming work session with show managers. If
you would like to further expand beyond the listed questions, feel
free to do this. Please respond by Thursday, October 10th. To
respond, just copy and paste the questions and then type in your
answers and send to
1. Over all, ( no one specific show)
What is your major complaint?
2. Over all, ( no one specific show) What would you most
like to see changed?
3. Do you nominate for year end awards? If not, why? Have you
nominated in previous years?
4. How long have you carried a PE membership?
5. If you are not, or have not been a PE member, would you

6. If you are currently showing at PEHSC member shows, what are
they doing that keeps you coming back to support them?
7. If you have shown at PEHSC member shows in the PAST but NO

exhibitor or spectator?

There have been inquiries
regarding the rule change voted in Nov. 1, that would have allowed
the 10 and Under Youth to cross enter into canter classes and still
maintain their points in any of the 10 and Under Walk -Trot or 10
and Under Walk-Optional Gait classes. THIS VOTE WAS RESCINDED. The
10 and Under classes continue this year with the wording CANNOT
CROSS ENTER into a canter class.
The 2013 Show Season promises to be a real challenge given the
current gas prices and we are asking our Exhibitors to keep in mind
that the Shows are suffering these same economic ills. Add to that
fact, their insurance has gone up, ribbon costs, arena rental, and
just the general cost to host a show has increased dramatically.
Let’s work together to support our local shows, and please
understand the gate fees and entry fees may be higher this season.
It still is the best deal in town when you consider this is a great
weekend activity to spend quality time with our family and friends.
