Stepping Out

In its history, the show has been met with challenges.  Over time, the famed Pin Oak stables were no longer part of the Houston landscape, and the Pin Oak Charity Horse Show struggled to find a permanent home.  It moved from the Astrodome to the racetrack and finally to its current home at the Great Southwest Equestrian Center in Katy, TX.

Continuing in its social tradition and honoring its rich heritage, the Pin Oak Charity Horse Show continues to garner accolades, awards and enjoys an enviable stature in the horse show world.  In 2009, Pin Oak was designated as the first Heritage Competiton in the country by the United State Equestrian Federation that is a source of pride for the show.  Continuing to grow in prestige, Pin Oak was named by NARG (North American Riders Group) as Top 25 horse show in North America many times over.  The recognition does not stop there; Pin Oak has been voted favorite breed show multiple years and a UPHA Chapter Honor Show - Pin Oak continues to strive for excellence in keeping with its traditions.

A new generation of Pin Oak leaders continues to allocate funds to benefit Texas Children's Hospital and two charities that work inside of Texas Children's - Ronald McDonald Family Rooms and Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Family Alliance.

The Pin Oak Charity Horse Show of today has evolved into something that is so much more than just a horse show with its charitable giving and outreach throughout the year.  Houston's hometown horse show has become the horse show that brings healing through horse power!
