Meeting Information

Saturday, October 3, 2020 @ Gordyville
Sunday, November 15, 2020 START, Decatur, IL





Due to the stay at home order in Illinois being extended through May, we are being forced to cancel our May 30-31 shows at DuQuoin. We appreciate everyone's understanding on this matter. However, we are still looking forward to our 2020 show season here in Illinois. We are changing some dates and locations to reschedule these shows, and to allow our exhibitors as many chances as possible to show their horses once these guidelines have been lifted. Watch our website and our FB pages for the updated show schedule we will be posting in the next few days. We are sorry for the inconvenience. We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you all soon at an IPHA show. Thank you and stay safe.

The IPHA President and Board of Directors
