71st Annual Buffalo International Horse Show

September 13-17, 2017

The Buffalo International Horse Show is held each year to benefit our facility and our therapeutic riding program. Thanks to the support of our exhibitors and sponsors our facility is constantly improving. Over 600 lessons were given through our program in 2016.

The BIHS is a "AA" Rated Horse Show and is supported by the Syracuse PHA, Ohio PHA, and WPPHA.

Buffalo International Horse Show receives USEF Heritage Status

The designation of a USEF Heritage Competition is reserved for competitions that have been in existence for 25 years or more, promoted and grown equestrian sport, and made contributions to the community outside the gates of the horse show by achieving, maintaining, and promoting the equestrian ideals of sportsmanship and competition. The BIHS is fortunate to be one of less than 20 horse shows nationally who holds this illustrious status.
