All because you decided to come show with us, we have so many reasons to celebrate 2022, and even more to look forward to in the new year:
- Sponsors were abundant. Much of what makes our shows special happens through the support of our sponsors. From our generous show barns and businesses, to passionate individuals: you all supported our shows. And that makes all the difference in what we can offer, and you can enjoy.
- Opportunity met talent. Thanks to grants provided by Sea Mountain / Chubb, some of our young riders got a little extra to cover the costs of showing, helping them to realize opportunities that their talent and dedication deserved.
- Young horses and OTTB Thoroughbreds got a break on show fees. In 2022, we had 24 horses participate in this program, which is generously sponsored by IOS Ranch. Cascade Horse Shows is proud to offer a showing experience that is just right for where these horses are in their development.
- Hospitality was all-inclusive. Dinners to drinks; donuts to mimosas–all were inclusive for you to enjoy at our shows this year. It’s the fun times spent with family, friends, and fellow showgoers and the beautiful Washington State Horse Park setting that helps to make each Cascade show a “showcation”.
- New and familiar faces. We welcomed quite a few new competitors in 2022, from both near and far. We loved getting to know each of you, as well as hosting so many of our long-time exhibitors. We are eager to welcome all of you back in 2023.
- Our amazing staff and crew. Finally, we must call out the people who go beyond the call of duty to ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible, and that everyone is taken care of in ways that say, “we are glad you are here”: our committed Cascade staff and crew. It can’t be overstated: these people are the lifeblood of the “Cascade vibe” that we pride ourselves on delivering year after year. Whether it’s helping get your stabling or RV spaces sorted, capturing your indelible memories in pictures, ensuring you have a good experience in the show ring, or even, dare we say, making your visits to the Show Office surprisingly friendly and efficient… Our hardworking staff makes it all possible.
So, for all of this and more… Thank YOU!!
2023 is poised to be another great year. Each year we come together as a community. Each year we add to the experience. Each year we enjoy the beautiful setting of the Washington State Horse Park. In 2023, we will have three show weeks in June and a 4-day Finals in September.
See you in the new year!
Your Cascade Team
