Karen's Shows

Karen’s Shows is a casual show series in honor of Karen Kershaw, who held shows for those learning about shows and those who wanted to just show their horse.

What is a casual show?  A show where all breeds are appreciated and welcomed.  A show for the beginner to learn from the more experienced.  A show for the more experienced to show with less stress.  A show where you don’t have to worry about wearing last year’s outfit or if you forgot your gloves or pin.  A show where the more experienced are not too good to help the beginner.  A show where a beginner can ask a question and learn more.

More fun, less stress!Kassshowweb

 Karen’s Shows at Annett Farms

Our judges have experience with more than one breed, have no breed prejudice, and are professional instructors and trainers.

The show is usually over between 3 and 4 so we have added the games classes at the end.
