Announcing the Cascade Circuit Cup Awards

Success in any aspect of horse sports takes courage, commitment and a good bit of horse sense. The courage to trust your horse; the commitment to keep improving; the sense to know that these qualities matter most in showing. All of us at Cascade Horse Shows recognize that it takes similar courage and commitment whether competing in the 2’3” hunters or the 1.30m jumpers or any height in between.

It is with this spirit that we proudly announce the Cascade Circuit Cup Awards: championship awards bestowed upon the horses accumulating the most points in one of five categories over the full Cascade Horse Shows 2018 circuit:  Swiftwater Invitational, Alpine Preview, Pacific Crest Open, and Cascade Finals. And because every class at every height is included in points tallying, every horse is a contender.
