Wayne, IL – September 6, 2016 – Showplace Productions and Show Manager Patrick Boyle have planned the biggest ever Showplace Fall Classic Championship Horse Show, September 13-18, 2016, taking place at Lamplight Equestrian Center for the final time since it will be hosted at Hits Balmoral Park in Crete, Illinois in 2017.
 
The premier Midwest horse show is the USHJA Zone V Championship Horse Show and also holds the Illinois Hunter Jumper Association (IHJA) “A” Medal Finals, the Marshall & Sterling Midwest Finals and the $150,000 Marshall & Sterling 1.30m Grand Prix Series. The popular Grand Prix series began in May and will conclude at this championship week with a $10,000 Showplace Leading Horse & Rider Bonus. The Leading Trainer in the series will receive a $5,000 gift voucher from Devoucoux and the Leading Rider receives a CWD Saddle. The 1.30m Grand Prixs were not only a hit with professionals and young horses but also for young riders stepping into the prixs from junior and amateur jumper divisions.
