CARMA Gearing Up For Holiday Thoroughbred Classic Horse Show

The Thoroughbred Classic Horse Show (TCHS) is gearing up for its much-anticipated holiday show this year, set to take place on December 9-10 at the renowned Los Angeles Equestrian Center. Drawing equine enthusiasts and industry professionals alike, this event promises to showcase the unparalleled versatility of the Thoroughbred breed, all in the heart of Southern California's equestrian hub. 

The inception of the TCHS Series was about more than just creating another horse show series—it was about creating a space specifically for Off the Track Thoroughbreds (OTTB's) where they, with their owners, could confidently step into the show ring. Rooted in a desire to increase interest in OTTB's, the series provides an affordable and supportive environment, ensuring that both the Thoroughbreds and their riders feel acknowledged and celebrated.

Set against the backdrop of a world-class venue, the TCHS offers an extensive competition roster. From Hunters, Jumpers, and Dressage to Combined Training, Western, and Showmanship – there is something for everyone. Through this showcase, the equestrian community and general public can witness firsthand how, with the right training and support, Thoroughbreds can switch disciplines and compete at high levels in their second career. 

Spectators are welcome at our event, and admission is free! Learn more:
