    Charleston!!!! It's so much fun, and you can go to St. Johns Island and beach and we all basically make it our beach vacation. Blowing Rock is also great and we go right after Charleston, the venue is beautiful and the host a great gala that's fun to get all dressed up for.

    The Thoroughbred Celebration Horse Shows at The Virginia Horse Center in Lexington, VA. I look forward to the supportive atmosphere and the emphasis on the each horse's success.

    Upperville and The Sussex County Fair and Horse Show...I love the old school fair atmosphere (night classes under the lit up ferris wheel included) but I also like Warrenton and Keswick

    Autumn in New York. I love the ring, I love the competition (there were 25+ in the divisions I was in this year) and I love the prizes

    I'm in the Midwest and my trainer wants to go to Colorado to show, but I can't afford $2000 in shipping knowing that's could be used toward another show. Posted this in hopes of seeing good closer suggestions as well as just being curious. Except now you all have me wanting to go to the East Coast!!! Not helping

    Second the MN Harvest show for the Midwest. I'm also a huge fan of the Lamplight and/or Ledges shows in the Chicago area. Beautiful facilities.

    Thanks for the Midwest suggestions!!

    Don't feel restricted on continuing to comment on other shows though. I'm enjoying checking them all out

    OP, not sure where in the Midwest you are, but there are really nice shows at Maffitt Lake in Des Moines, IA, and the Midstates shows in Mason City used to be really nice as well.
