One of the largest Saddlebred shows in the southeastern United States is set to return to Decatur in October. The Alabama Charity Championship Horse Show attracts 700 horses from over fifteen states to the Morgan County Celebration Arena where amateurs and professionals compete for top honors and prize money while raising money for charity.

The 22nd event is set for October 11-13, 2012. Show hours are nightly at 6 p.m. Additional shows are at 10 a.m. on Thursday and Friday and at 9 a.m. on Saturday. In addition to the competition, vendors will have displays set up selling horse-related items ranging from oil paintings to clothing items. Admission is free.  

The Charity Horse Show offers open classes in which entries may be shown by juveniles, amateurs, and professionals, all competing for prize money, ribbons and trophies. Proceeds from the competition benefit the Junior League of Morgan County and the Children’s Hands On Museum at the Carnegie Visual Art Center.

Sponsorships are available for the 2012 show. The Morgan County Celebration Arena is located at 67 Horse Center Road (off Highway 67 East) in Decatur.
