The OHDC Experience:
Approved by the US Hunter Jumper Association, this show is one of only 25 to receive Heritage Horse Show Designation. It is also the only show of this caliber that exists as a fundraiser for a youth non-profit! Besides being a top notch show, proceeds from the Classics support the 7 programs for at-risk kids under the J Bar J Youth Services’ umbrella.
This summer, we are delighted to welcome Paul Jewell as our new Show Manager. Paul is a familiar face on the showgrounds around the country, from Vermont to Devon, Chicago and now Bend Oregon! Whether managing, judging, or course design, Paul has been involved with horse shows for 30 years. He holds his US Equestrian “R” (explain what does R means ) jumper judge license and he is also a sought-after “R” course designer in both hunters and jumpers.
Paul brings not only a high level of expertise to our show, but also new ideas. We are excited to work with Paul in this new role. The 2020 OHDC is sure to be a stellar experience for exhibitors and vendors!
We also say good bye and express our gratitude to Dianne Johnson for 23 years of leadership in developing and managing The Oregon High Desert Classics. Dianne grew the OHDC to be a world class show and successful fundraiser for the J Bar J programs that help youth facing homelessness, teen pregnancy, adjudication and family crisis, get the help they need to become healthy citizens. Thank you Dianne!
