Racking Horse Show gallops into Decatur | Community Spirit
The largest Racking Horse Show in the U.S. will return to Decatur’s Celebration Arena on September 20 through 28.
This World Celebration will offer over one hundred classes for any age group and skill level, and the new World Grand Champion will be crowned during the show.
The annual World Celebration will host, in addition to the horse competition, a horse sale, a barn decorating contest, nightly consignment sales and a gold tournament. The Pleasure Association will present a 50/50 raffle and the “When Pigs Fly” contest. During this wacky contest, which will be held nightly, participants will attempt to fly a pig toward a target, the closest one winning a cash prize.
On the Saturday night prior to the World Grand Champion announcement, children can participate in the “Stick Horse” class, where they can compete in a friendly stick horse competition in the arena.
Shows will be held nightly at 6 p.m., except for on Thursday, when it will start at 5:30 p.m. Admission is $5 per person through September 25 and $7 for the rest of the nights.
