About Us

The Germantown Charity Horse Show (GCHS) is one of the largest all-breed shows in the United States. Horse enthusiasts from all over the country make the trip to Germantown, Tennessee, a suburb of Memphis, to enjoy family fun. The show’s heritage dates back to 1946, and owes its founding to a small group of fox hunters.

The Germantown Charity Horse Show is a five-day event featuring Hunter/Jumpers, Gypsy Vanners, Tennessee Walking Horses, Flat-Shod Racking Horses, American Saddlebreds, Paso Finos, Sidesaddle, and Carriage Driving. Each year, hundreds of horses and thousands of spectators make their way to beautiful Germantown, Tennessee, to participate in this historic United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) Heritage Show. There are activities and events for all ages, and GCHS is known for its southern hospitality and sense of community. In addition the show provides more than $1.5 million in sales tax revenue for the city and has raised tens of thousands of dollars for its charity, Kindred Place.
