We'd like to share some EXCITING NEWS about the upcoming July Show in Stanley!

The 2020 Green Chile Classic will now include Appaloosa classes AND also include the Taos County 4-H Regional Show in addition to Paint, Pinto and All Breed classes!
Put this show on your calendar for July 18-19!


Our horse show friends from the NM color breeds help make our Green Chile Classic and Red Chile Fiesta Horse Shows competitive and fun and we’re looking forward to both of these summer horse shows.

We all are aware that the Coronavirus restrictions that have been put in place around the country have made plans for this show season difficult, especially with all the changes that seem to take place daily. This UPDATE is to let you know we are preparing for our upcoming Green Chile Classic & Red Chile Fiesta shows.

As we are move forward with our GREEN CHILE CLASSIC on JULY 18 & 19, 2020, in Stanley, NM; we will inform our exhibitors, staff and members of any changes or restrictions that may be required that are out of our control. We are working hard and have our fingers crossed to proceed with this show.

We are staying informed about what is happening at other venues around the country and locally so that we will know how best to hold our show and protect the safety for our staff and exhibitors. We are in contact with the horse show facility to determine the precautions that need to be in place for the show.

We will be having a show committee meeting in a few days to work on our program. There may be some changes to our class schedule due to the Coronavirus and the safety of our staff and exhibitors. We want to insure that the show runs as smoothly and as efficiently as usual.  

There will also be changes in the office operation. We will keep you informed.


We are expecting a great turn out for our shows as evidenced by the number of stall reservations that we are already receiving. We are looking forward to having a great show with the help and support of our horse community friends, NMPHC, PtHANM, NMApHC and NMPEA, as well as our all breed exhibitors from throughout our state and surrounding states.


Thank for your understanding and support as we strive to make this horse show safe and successful.
