Evergreen Gaited Horse Classic

The Northwest Gaited Horse Club put on an annual all breed gaited horse show in July for nine years called the Evergreen Gaited Horse Classic (EGHC). While this was a fun and popular show, we did not achieve the support needed to continue for 2012.

If you are passionate about this show and would like to help volunteer and promote exhibitor attendance, please email us. It has been a wonderful experience supporting sound gaited horses and meeting so many great people along the way. A heartfelt thank you to all the dedicated volunteers for your nine years of support and for providing an unprecedented fun and educational all gaited horse show in Washington state.

A Unique Horse Show
Come join the fun! Our show gives riders and spectators the opportunity to learn about gaited horses by integrating schooling classes right into the show schedule. Novices take part in the show alongside experienced entries and they are given lots of help and encouragement along the way. At the end of each schooling class the riders get immediate feedback from the judge. Riders and spectators learn what the judge was looking for and why the class was placed as it was.
