The Prize List for the National Sunshine Shows at the Desert International Horse Park is now available online by clicking here: 2019 Prize List. The two-week schedule represents a significant effort to leverage nearly all of the competition rings to create a reasonable show day and an earlier ending time on Sunday. The team is excited about the progress at the facility over the last month. We look forward to welcoming everyone and their horses on move-in day, October 29, 2019, for a memorable two weeks.
