Where national champions are made!



2017 Buckeye Results

2017 Buckeye Prize List

The best way to describe the Buckeye Sweepstakes Horse Show is “Where National Champions are made”! It is also considered the largest Class A Arabian horse show in the country other than the Scottsdale show. It has always been one of the most innovative shows since its inception in 1963. The home of the Buckeye has always been the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus, Ohio, and always on Memorial Day Weekend.

The Buckeye slogan “WHERE NATIONAL CHAMPIONS ARE MADE!” is proven year after year. If you can win at the Buckeye, you can be a National Winner. The caliber of horses is the best, especially in the performance divisions.

The Buckeye offers National Show Horse District Championship classes, a Progressive Party that is one of the best in the country, different prize money programs, really cool awards, and a lot of prize money is offered.  It is non stop horse show!

The Buckeye is also famous for their “Progressive Party”. This is held after the Friday evening session. Spectators and exhibitors are treated to foods provided by the various farms. Folks go through the barn sampling a variety of food, both American and foreign in nature.

We are also happy to host the Arabian English Pleasure Associations “AEPA $20,000 Strawberry Banks AO Country Maturity.”  This class is the highlight of the Friday evening session.  The Celebration can then continue at the Progressive Party immediately following the class!

Everywhere you look there is a feeling of excitement when you spot many of the top stables in the country and some of the most talented exhibitors on those horses we have read about in the magazines.

If you are looking for a show which is highly competitive, with the best of the best in the country performing, mark your calendar for Memorial Day Weekend, we promise you a weekend of fun!
