World Equestrian Center, Wilmington Ohio. 2020

For the first time Butler Show Horses decided to attend the World Equestrian Center (WEC) for our annual international competition trip. Similar to HITS Ocala, it is a great opportunity for hunter/jumper riders of any experience level! With a wide variety of classes and divisions it has something for everyone. This past February of 2020 our international show team included Shawn Butler with BSH Matinee and Abitibi GS, Hope Hermans with Elroy GS, Brooklyn Peck with Fine Like Brandi, Vanessa David with Heart’s Second Glance, and Aliah Butler with Salt n’ Peppa. After the two weeks spent in the states our team brought home many ribbons and even more memories!


HITS, Ocala Fla. 2019

For the past four years Butler Show Horses has made an annual trip to HITS in Ocala Florida to compete. It is a great opportunity for hunter/jumper riders of any experience level! HITS offers everything from short stirrup to the Great American $1 Million Grand Prix. This past March of 2019, Shawn brought down his horse BSH Matinee along with Hope Hermans riding Obviously De Fined, Olivia Ng riding Run for the Money, Aliah Butler riding Beaverwoods Hydrangea, and Laura Stevenson riding O’Rien 49. Over the span of three weeks Butler Show Horses took home three – 1sts, five – 3rds, two – 4ths, two – 5ths, three – 6ths, three – 7ths, one – 8th, but most importantly, brought home so many great memories! Going to HITS in Ocala is an amazing experience and an opportunity of a life time where you learn so much, and showing is available everyday from Tuesday to Sunday every week!!
