The Blowing Rock Charity Horse Show has a long and noteworthy history as one of the oldest and continuously operated competitions in the United States. Run for the first time in 1923 the prestigious show has run uninterrupted for 90 years. The Blowing Rock Charity Horse Show has had a deep impact on the community having provided generous financial assistance to local charities.

"This show has become a part of the fabric of the American showing scene. With its endurance, dedication to philanthropic efforts and impact on the community, it is a perfect example of what we look for when designating Heritage Competitions."
