About the Show

WE’RE LOOKING FOR THE BEST ACADEMY RIDERS IN THE COUNTRY

The National Academy Championship Horse Show is one like no other. This is the only 3-day, 3-judge academy show in the nation. Riders from all over the country join us each year in the spirit of competition and to raise money to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. If you have what it takes to compete with the best, we hope you’ll join us November 3-5 in Murfreesboro, TN.

BIG COMPETITION. BIG PRIZES

How would you like to win a new saddle? Or the biggest ribbons you’ve ever seen?! Our competition is unlike any other. The competition at NACHS may be more than you’re ever experienced. More skilled riders to compete against, more to aim for. Come join us and be part of the academy riding event that takes riders to the next level and supports research at St. Jude’s. There’s no show like this in the nation. And we want you to be part of it.
