Horse Play In May


NEWS FLASH – The 2016 HPIM will be offering a $500 purse Hunter Derby sponsored by Burton Properties and Jordan Burton.


You are invited to join the South Carolina Upstate Equine Council on May 21&22, 2016 for our Sixth Annual Horse Play In May, a 2-day horse show with classes for every discipline, and held at the T. Ed Garrison Livestock Arena, Pendleton, SC.
We are offering a Hunter/Jumper series, a new Hunter Derby,  Dressage and Combined Training series, and a CHSA Open Show series which includes English, Western, Arabian, Games and more. There will be Championship Awards and a $500 Cash Payback for the Hunter Derby. All classes will be held under cover, so weather is not an issue, the show will go on!

The Garrison Arena offers numerous stalls, RV hook-ups, concessions, and is within a 5 mile drive to many motels, restaurants, and shopping facilities.

Last year we had 100+ horses over two days coming from as far as the Charlotte, Columbia, Atlanta, and Asheville areas and our show keeps growing. This is an excellent way to promote your business, farm, or training services within a 2 hour driving radius.

To make things even more exciting, all spectators are free.

We currently have vendor spaces both inside and outside the main arena along with advertising space in our show program. Space is available on a first come, first serve basis so please contact us as soon as possible, and if you only want to show your horse, we will be happy to have you join us.
SCUEC is a 501 c (3) and the Horse Play In May is our major fundraiser each year. Our efforts help support the TCTC Vet-Tech Evening Student Scholarship, WCAHA Youth Jamboree, the 4-H Program, T. Ed Garrison Livestock Arena, CU Experimental Forests, and several other projects supported by the South Carolina Upstate Equine Council.
Plan to join us May 21&22, 2016. Let’s have fun, help promote your business and horses, and support our equine community all at the same time.
