Mission Statement

Our mission, as we enter our eighth decade, is to continue to uphold the traditional horse show & country fair, to maintain an equestrian competition venue for children and adults; maintain natural habitat, make grounds available for local sports teams, community events, movie nights, fairs, festivals as well as focus on the preservation of this open space in rapidly growing Northern Chester county.

Description

In 1943, Chester County, PA was a predominantly rural area with a strong tradition of foxhunting, horse sports and farm ownership; a group of local property owners planned a horse show to be held on Labor Day. Pleased with the results of their inaugural effort, the founding committee opened membership to the general public and became an organization focused on hosting the annual Labor Day weekend horse show.
Today, the Ludwig’s Corner Horse Show Association owns 33 acres on the corner of Routes 100 and 401 in Glenmoore, PA. There are three rings for competition and one for warm up. The three-day annual event will often attract up to 15,000 spectators. The show has become a beloved tradition for riders and visitors alike, drawing on average 425 competitors from across the Brandywine and Delaware Valleys.
Since 2010, with the mortgage loan satisfied, the focus of the Board has been to continue capital improvements while maintaining the existing facilities. Rental of the show grounds from April thru November each year supplements income from show entries and sponsorship.
Maintenance and improvements to the grounds and competition rings are continual, with upgrades around the show grounds to enhance the exhibitor experience and rental opportunities uppermost in our plans each year. Volunteers are the life blood of this organization and the need is ever present.
