Horse Shows, Clinics, and Events

Potomac Horse Center Show Teams compete at home (PHC Client Shows), at local schooling shows, and at team shows through the Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA). Our show teams are open to all who are interested and we enthusiastically welcome new riders. 

You do not need your own horse to participate in horse shows; we have school horses who love to go to shows and strut their stuff. We are currently gearing up for our 2023 show season and have many local away shows on our calendar. Please speak with your instructor if you are interested in learning more about horse showing with PHC.
