EventMix and its sponsors will provide a free webcast of all sessions of the 2019 JD Massey Classic at

In April 2019, the JD Massey Classic Horse Show celebrates its 86th 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.
