The National Academy Championship Horse Show was inspired by the love of children and horses in 1999 by Joyce Webster of B& W Stables in Hartselle, Alabama. Mrs. Webster decided to create the National Academy Championship Horse Show and give all the proceeds to St. Jude's to help children with life threatening diseases.
“Since the show’s inception we’ve proudly donated over $100,000 to St. Jude’s and made thousands of young riders happy as they displayed their skills in front of thousands and all for a great cause”, said Mrs. Webster.
Some of this year’s corporate sponsors are Reed Family Trust, Jefferies Saddle and Winner’s Circle Horse Supply, Peeper Ranch, Independent Equine Agents of Louisville, Hartmeyer Saddlery and Apparel, Marsha De Arriaga, National Bridle Shop, Cash Lovell Stable and Riding Academy, Heathermoor Farm, Stepping Stone Farm, Mr. and Mrs. John Wallace, Becker Brothers, Zubrod Stables, 3-T Farm, Meadow Dreamer’s Youth Club and Demos’ Restaurants.
