Administrative/Biographical History

The Atlanta Horse Show Association was created to stimulate comradeship between fellow horsemen and to create friendly and wholesome rivalries between them in ownership and the showing of fine horses. The show aimed to put Atlanta on the list of credible southern horse shows, such as Louisville and Nashville. The show also aimed to cultivate an interest in horses in young people, so that the sport could continue. Additional historical information about the Atlanta Horse Show Association has not been determined.
