2023 Horse Shows & Events Schedule

The Johnson County 4-H Horse Committee in Cleburne, Texas sponsors several open horse shows throughout the year. These are open to any age exhibitor on any breed horse and we especially cater to the beginning exhibitor young or old. We have several families who have three generations showing with us which attests to our family atmosphere. You will see backyard horses as well as World Champions at our shows. We are proud to offer a show that appeals to such a variety of exhibitors. Of course these shows would not be possible without the numerous 4-H volunteers who work throughout the year to make it happen.

Fall Shows

The Fall Horse Shows consist of three shows sponsored by the 4-H Horse Committee . Formal show attire is not required. The late October show hosts our famous "Halloween Extravaganza" costume class which has grown to quite an "interesting event". The 3 fall shows used to be Clinic/ show combination. These 3 shows now are full fledged shows with Halter, and performance and speed classes.

Shows are held at the Johnson County Sheriffs Posse indoor arena on Main Street about a mile south of the Johnson County Courthouse in Cleburne.
