Check Our Horse Shows & Events

Happenstance Farms host six to seven hunter/jumper schooling horse shows every year. Happenstance horse shows are sanctioned by the Missouri Hunter Jumper Organization (MOHJO), Missouri Horse Show Association (MHSA), and Mid Illinois Sport Horse Organization (MISHO) all contribute to year end points.


Happenstance Farms schooling shows allow riders to get valuable showing experience in a less formal atmosphere.  Each show offers a wide range of class types to accommodate riders and horses of all ages and skill levels. Judges are brought in from all over the United States which, not only ensures fairness and integrity for competitors, but also allows maximum exposure for riders.


Come join us in the ring at one of our many upcoming horse shows.
