Happy New Year everyone!  We at Mid States Horse Shows are looking forward to another great year in 2018!  Join us at the historic North Iowa Events Center in Mason City, IA for a total of 4 high quality Hunter/Jumper events.  A top notch showing environment awaits you in Mason City with our great competitions, friendly staff, and good friends.

In 2018 be on the lookout for the following highlights:

  1. A return to the traditional 2 week format during our Summer Series!  We at Mid States put a lot of thought into he format of our June shows for 2018.  In the end, we decided that the decision that provided the most benefit for all (our equine friends included) would be to return to the traditional 2 week format.  The shows will occur on their normal dates beginning with the “Spring” show on June 6-10, 2018.  Join us for our most exciting shows of the season!
  2. 2 weeks in the Fall!  We at Mid States are thrilled to announce the opportunity to bring back the Mid States Season Finale show, September 19-23, 2018!  Coming back for it’s second season, we hope that everyone can join us for a VERY FUN week of horse showing!  The inaugural edition of the show last Fall had beautiful weather, a hilarious costume pairs class, and a very exciting $15,000 Speed Derby!  We would be thrilled to see everyone in September for TWO WEEKS!
