Littlestown, Pa. – March 29, 2016 – Swan Lake Horse Shows grew the Blue Rock Classic Horse Show to record entries in 2015, and now the show management team is proud to partner with Ryegate Show Services to also produce the St. Christopher’s Horse Show.

The St. Christopher’s Horse Show will be held May 11-15, 2016 with the Blue Rock Classic immediately following on May 18-22, 2016, allowing exhibitors two weeks of back-to-back, top-of-the-line hunter/jumper competition at Swan Lake Stables in Littlestown, Pennsylvania.

Historically run by Ryegate Show Services, St. Christopher’s is now in its third year at Swan Lake Stables, and partnering with Swan Lake Horse Shows to produce the show was the natural next step. Lloyd Longenecker, president of Ryegate Show Services, and Nathan Panetta, CEO of Panetta Show Services which operates Swan Lake Horse Shows, will serve as co-managers of the St. Christopher’s Horse Show.

“While our former home at the Quentin Riding Club served us well in its day, moving the horse show to Swan Lake was something we did with the horses’ interest in mind, and we have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from riders, sponsors and spectators,” Longenecker said. “Given Swan’s Lake’s commitment to the horse show, we feel that partnering with them is a logical next step.”

Panetta said, “We’re thrilled to combine Ryegate’s years of horse show experience with our resources here at Swan Lake. Our facility is continually growing and striving to offer the highest quality horse shows for our exhibitors. Together with Ryegate, I think we can really establish St. Christopher’s as something even bigger, better and more special than what it already is today.”

The USEF National A and 4* rated St. Christopher’s National show and the Blue Rock Classic 4* Premiere AA-rated show will each offer a $25,000 grand prix and competitive prize money across a full range of jumper divisions.
