We are passionate horse people just like you! In the late 2000's our founder, Duane Stutzman saw a need for affordable horse shows in the midwest that still gave back to the exhibitors. We started off by hosting the first Buckeye Gold Classic Jackpot Open Pleasure Show at the Coshocton County Fairgrounds in Coshocton , OH in 2015. The show featured a $2,000 W/T pleasure class which drew exhibitors from all over the state, western PA and WV. The rest is history, we quickly grew out of the fairgrounds and moved to central Ohio where we for the past five years have hosted thousands of exhibitors from all throughout the midwest in a variety of events from pleasure shows, ranch horse events and more recently western dressage. We aspire to promote a positive, friendly and inviting atmosphere at our events and do not tolerate violators of those three things.

We seek to establish collaborative relationships with our exhibitors.

Within the multiple events that Buckeye Equestrian Events hosts ourselves to working with breed associations and clubs, we aim to design a comprehensive event management system that utilizes a strong knowledge of contractual agreements, ordering awards, coordinating show staff, data entry, show bill/premium creation, course/pattern design, accounting and marketing. You can trust that every detail is methodically planned and evaluated to ensure the success of every event we are apart of. 

Currently we are affiliated with the American Miniature Horse Association, American Shetland Pony Club, American Miniature Horse Registry, Haflinger Championship Challenge & Western Dressage Association of America in regards to hosting breed and discipline specific horse shows. We are continually seeking other breeds and venues as our schedule permits. 

Specific services we provide outside of the show office include ringmastering, scribing, announcing and judging. Contact us today for a list of references of the many events we have been apart of including local, regional and nation events!
