Host to six equestrian events, the American Royal brings many of the best horses and exhibitors to Kansas City and provides youth and adults the opportunity for scholarships, educational experiences, and competition.
Hunter/Jumper Show Update:
The American Royal sent a survey to 2019 Hunter/Jumper exhibitors this summer to evaluate their readiness to attend events. After reviewing the survey results, discussing expected attendance with show management and committee members, and with thoughtful consideration and committee support, it has been decided to suspend the 2020 Hunter/Jumper Horse Show hosted by the American Royal scheduled for October 6-10, 2020. This decision did not come easy. After a thorough review of the survey results, and listening to exhibitors and committee members, our show would not have the participation numbers needed to be financially responsible. As a non-profit, these are some of the tough choices we have to make.
At this time, the American Royal does plan to host other 2020 events as scheduled and we hope you will consider joining us during another event. We are looking forward to bringing the Hunter/Jumper Horse Show back to the American Royal in 2021 and ask you to mark your calendars for October 5-9th, 2021. We can’t wait to welcome you back to the American Royal!
