Brief History of the Bridlespur Horse Show

The Bridlespur Hunt has hosted an annual horse show since the 1930’s when it was a common site to have saddle horses and Hackneys competing with the hunters and jumpers. Over the years, like most shows, the breeds separated and Bridlespur became an exclusively hunter/jumper show. For years it remained the premier event of the St. Louis horsey set, and as late as the 1980’s, the August Busch stable competed with the multi-titled Stocking Stuffer. In 2011, because of one board member who also has Saddlebreds, it was proposed that the Bridlespur Horse Show again include classes for saddle horses much like Devon or Germantown. Instead, the entire show was turned over to Saddlebreds and Hackneys and became the new Bridlespur Horse Show.
