The National Clydesdale Show Committee would like to thank all of the National Clydesdale Show Sponsors listed below for their support of the 2023 National Clydesdale Show. We have seen unprecedented interest in the National Show this year and the Show Committee is very thankful for all of the support. The Committee has been working hard over the winter along with Iowa State Fair staff to make improvements to the show schedule and the overall exhibitor experience. We have added a riding trail class this year for both adult and youth participants, and of course will have a full slate of hitch, halter, riding, and youth classes similar to previous years. The National Show Riding and Pattern Class Guidelines for 2023 can be found at the bottom of this page in the Form and Document Download section.

The Committee is continuing to work on organizing this years National Show and will be adding details here as they become available. If you have questions about this years show please feel free to contact a Committee Member.
