Horse show galloping back to Raleigh

November 1, 2016 by  

In just a few days, the annual horse show will return to Raleigh.

For the 33rd year in a row, the Jump for the Children horse show, also known as the Duke Show will convene at the Governor James B. Hunt Horse Complex.

This show has come to be known as the largest horse jumper show in North Carolina and is expected to draw a large crowd of spectators as usual. So far, it has raised over $1.6m and the money, as the show’s title intimates, has been contributed to the Duke Children’s Hospital.

The show is bringing back the favorite attractions from past events, like lead line class, the Grand Prix, the stick horse race, and the Welcome Jumper Stakes. Each day of the show, classes on horse jumping for the beginners and for the professionals will be rendered in two separate rings.

Also featured at the show will be vendors of various wares, arts, and crafts, who might benefit from business cards to further promote their goods. They will be offering various items like clothing, pottery, accessories, and artwork across various media.

For years, the show has been a success and has become a town favorite. It will all take place November 8 to 13 at 4601 Trinity Road in Raleigh, which is just nine miles east of Cary.
