Start training. Start visualizing your success.
The National Academy Championship Horse Show is known for bringing talented, experienced academy riders from all over the nation. Safety is our #1 goal. We ask that all of our riders train to ride their horses in a controlled, safe fashion. For inspiration, see our prize list.
The National Academy Championship Horse Show was inspired by the love of children and horses by Joyce Webster of B&W Stables.
Our story began in 1999, when Joyce met a very sick little girl one day riding a horse at her barn. Even though the child was very ill, this little girl had the biggest smile on her face because she was riding a horse — this was the child’s dream come true! From that moment on, Joyce couldn’t stop thinking about this beautiful child and how happy being around horses made her. Joyce decided to create the National Academy Championship Horse Show and give all the proceeds to St. Jude’s to help children with life threatening diseases.
Thanks to the generosity of many barns, riders, families, friends and our sponsors, this show has now donated over $324,500 to St. Jude’s to help sick children and fund critical research.
