"There's No Business Like Show Business" Enjoy!

 In 1986, we held the Jersey Classic for the first time at the Horse Park of New Jersey.  It was a new facility with not a tree in sight. We have since watched it grow into one of the finest show grounds in the East.  Located at 626 Route 524 in Upper Freehold Township, Monmouth County, it is easily accessible just minutes off Route 195.   

We welcome spectators to come spend an enjoyable time with us at the Horse Park located in a beautiful, spacious country setting.    

Five-Gaited horses compete for the "Doc" Covino Perpetual Memorial Trophy. The trophy, obtained from the American Saddlebred Museum, is a sculpture of the very famous Five-Gaited horse, CH Imperator, once owned by Dr. Meanor and shown by Don Harris.  CH Imperator was a four-time World's Grand Champion and World Champion a record eight times.  And there are even more credits to his name.

Our thanks again to the Aversenti and Covino families for donating this beautiful trophy.


The Annual JCHS took place on June 9-11, 2017.  Early reports point to a successful show.  Stay tuned for updates.

News Flash!  Congratulations to Sophie Esarco  for winning the $2,000 William Woods College scholarship for high-point junior exhibitor!

The Annual Jersey Classic Horse Show took place on June 10-12, 2016.

The Horse Show committee worked hard to make the 30th Annual Jersey Classic Horse Show held at the Horse Park of NJ bigger and better.


It was a beautiful weekend at the Horse Park and the show wouldn't have been so successful without all of our wonderful exhibitors!  

To everyone who brought horses, competed, sponsored, volunteered or participated in some way we want to say THANK YOU!  This show was a success because of your support!  

To everyone who couldn't make it this year, we are looking forward to seeing you in the show ring next year!
