HARRISBURG, Pa. — After much debate and numerous exhibitor requests, the Pennsylvania National Horse Show (PNHS) announced it is going to maintain its previous policy regarding the acceptance of entries into the 3' and 3'3" "Green Hunter" divisions for the 2018 horse show.

On May 23, 2018, the PNHS announced the 3' and 3'3" Green Hunter entries would be accepted on a points earned basis as per GR 915.2. Because this represented a change from previous policy which accepted entries on a "first come first served" basis and was announced in the middle of the 2018 qualifying period, the PNHS has subsequently decided to re-institute the "first-come first-served" policy for the 2018 Show.

Beginning with the new qualifying period on Aug. 20, 2018, 3' and 3'3" Green Hunters will be qualified based on USEF points earned for the 2019 PNHS so that competition schedules can be planned accordingly.

Questions regarding the horse show should be directed to the PNHS office at 717-770-0222.

The 2018 Prize List will be available on line later this month.

Established in 1946, the Pennsylvania National Horse Show, presented by the Lindsay Maxwell Charitable Fund, hosts the country's top competitors in one of the largest indoor horse shows. Proceeds from the horse show benefit The Pennsylvania National Horse Show Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization, providing support for therapeutic riding programs and equine rescue groups. Make plans to join us October 11 - 20, 2018 at the Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, PA. For more information on the show or to donate to the Foundation, please visit www.PAnational.org.
