What is the Carolina Summer Circuit?

The Carolina Summer Circuit (CSC) was developed to encourage participation at smaller, Carolina-based horse shows and to establish goals for exhibitors and trainers.  We want to focus on creating a competitive environment where everyone can have fun working towards qualifying for one championship night at the end of the show season.  Qualify by competing in at least 5 classes at a minimum of 3 qualifying shows throughout the year and you’re in!

The CSC Championship

Fun competition, great prizes and a chance to end your show season a champion!  We are held in conjunction with the NC State Fair in Raleigh, NC on October 21, 2016.  Other than qualifying, no other requirements must be met.  Please register with us on our registration tab!
