In between raising money for cancer research, March to the Arch is a horse show.

It’s easy to lose sight of the fact that March to the Arch is a horse show.

After all, the annual charity event has raised half a million dollars for cancer research, and volunteers from judges to ring stewards to office staff are working for free.

But there’s a horse show going on as well, where exhibitors are trying to earn points and all of them receive a small prize just for showing up. Class drawings for gift certificates and cash also added to the fun of the competition.
