The Blandford Fair
Horse Show holds a
special place in the
hearts of many. Since 2011
the show has been run by Show Manager Kelli Marie Wainscott of Chesterfield and a large crew of volunteers that are her family and very close friends. Kelli's first horse show was in 1981 at the age of nine months at the Blandford Fair. Her mother Linda Jones placed her in the pint sized saddle that was on top of her grey Arabian gelding and the rest is history. Kelli still has the green 6th place ribbon she won that day in a frame along with the news article that was done on her being the youngest to ever show at the Blandford Fair. When Kelli was approached and asked to manage and run the horse show, of course the answer would be yes.
The show has grown in leaps and bounds. With a full staff of volunteers, the show has been able to raise enough money to build a new show arena with new footing. The show continues to save money to refurbish the barns and stalls as well. With over 100 horses participating every year, we have to thank the exhibitors and our generous sponsors who have helped raise funds for the show grounds. Every dollar has helped and we cannot thank everyone enough!
The show also works hard to raise money and give back to the community. Every year we hold classes to raise money for breast cancer research, local animal rescues, childrens hospitals, and local families in need. We will continue to do this because this show is made up of a very giving and close community. We hope you will stay up to date on the events being held at the Blandford Fairgrounds all year long.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Kelli Wainscott 413-695-8343 firstname.lastname@example.org
