Our Charities

So much more than a horse show!

The Pin Oak Charity Horse Show is known for its rich history, time-honored traditions, and equestrian excellence since its inception in 1945.

It is also known for its legacy of charitable giving to support the healing of sick children.  In addition the financial donations made to our charities, Pin Oak engages in outreach with our charities throughout the year:

Texas Children’s Hospital – Main and West Campus

Whether is the creative and fun Welcome Desk decorations at West Campus or herds of Pin Oak ponies unleashed at both Main and West Campus, Pin Oak supports the healing of sick children throughout the year.  Pin Oak participates in the Texas Children’s Family Fun Run, Teddy Bear Clinic, What’s Up Doc? and serves as a Texas Children’s Ambassador.

Pin Oak has created the Ten for Teens program at the West Campus, supports the Rememberance Event, and honors children who have overcome so much medically and serve as ambassadors of hope as our annual Honored Heroes.  We also provide Puppet Kits for the Child Life rooms, show ribbons to share with these children who are true champions, and Pin Oak coloring books to enjoy while waiting for outpatient procedures, follow-up appointments, or hospital stays.  ArtReach in the Texas Children’s Cancer Center is always a fun and special day for Pin Oak and the kiddos receiving care.

Pin Oak Charity Horse Show is proud to leave its hoof print of hope for all the children and families needing the care of Texas Children’s Hospital.

Ronald McDonald House Houston – Family Rooms

The Texas Medical Center is one of the largest and best in the world.  As such, children and families come from around the globe to receive medical care.  Ronald McDonald House Houston and their Family Rooms are a respite for these kids and families.  Pin Oak enjoys spending time with the kids and families for House lunches and activities, the annual ArtReach Days, Personal Pony visits, and our newly added event of Barn Night.

Always striving to fill gaps in the needs for the families, Pin Oak donates dental items throughout the year for the Family Rooms at Texas Children’s Hospital.  Pin Oak also enjoys supporting the annual RMH Cup golf tournament.

Candellighters Childhood Cancer Family Alliance

Summer is a time of fun for kids, but when you are a child with cancer then it can mean treatment instead of pool time, too many needle sticks, and more.  Pin Oak Charity Horse Show enjoys participating in Candlelighters’ Summer Surprises event every year.  We help bring a bit of Summer Fun to the Texas Children’s Cancer Center with Candlelighters with gifts for all, a great meal for the kids and families, complete with Pin Oak Ponies, show ribbons from Ribbon Recycling, and adorable horse cookies.  Pin Oak also proudly supports the annual golf tournament and looks forward to providing show ribbons for the champion kids at Candlelighter’s Camp Cliff.

Saddle up with Pin Oak so we can continue to be so much more than a horse show!
