In April 2020, the JD Massey Classic Horse Show celebrates its 87th anniversary.  The original event, which started in June 1933, was known as The Greenville Horse Show.  The founding members' determination for the "show to go on" continued its success even during World War II.  This year's event, heralded as one of the longest continually running American Saddlebred shows in the country, is a reflection of similar determination.

Pig Pickin' Barbecue

JD Massey will host a pig pickin' barbecue on Friday night after the show.  To sign up as a barn participant to bring a side dish or dessert contact Allen Bosworth at allbos5859@gmail.com.

The JD Massey Classic horse show scheduled for April 15-18, 2020 in Clemson, SC has been cancelled. We received a call from the management of the Garrison Arena facility Friday, March 20 informing us that all events at the arena and throughout the Clemson University community are cancelled until at least May 8, 2020.

Although this is not what anyone wanted, the Board and all of our management also believe this is in the best interest of all involved to slow down the spread of this horrendous situation.
We are exploring alternatives for later in the year but as for now, the show is cancelled in April, 2020.

Stay safe, stay well, and may God Bless everyone.
