Roscoe, IL- July 25, 2022 - The annual Perfecta Farm Show is August 4-7, 2022 at Ledges Sporting Horses in Roscoe, Illinois. In addition to fabulous awards and great competition, it’s the Dachshunds that are the real winners featuring a raffle with incredible items to raise funds for the Midwest Dachshund Rescue (MDR).

Generous sponsors have made it possible to host a $1000 Perfecta Farm Children’s / Adult Jumper Classic and a Jumper Sweepstakes. In addition to these events, participate in the $1,000 Marketing4Equestrian Hunter Derby, the $500 Perfecta Farm Non-Pro Hunter Derby, or the Perfecta Farm Equitation Classic. Choose from the huge selection of USHJA Outreach classes and qualify for the USHJA Outreach Festival at the IHJA (Illinois Hunter Jumper Association) "B" Finals Show September 15 - 18, 2022 at Ledges.

The Perfecta Farm show always offers fantastic awards including Grand Champion Awards, Best Rider Awards, Division Champions, and Classic winners.

If you’re attending to support the team and have some fun, there will be plenty of that also. The exhibitors’ barbeque will be held on Saturday afternoon hosted by Perfecta Farm. On Sunday, cool off with an old-fashioned ice cream social during the special awards presentation and leadline class.

Please plan to visit the Midwest Dachshund Rescue hospitality tent. Fantastic items will be displayed for the charity raffle. Stop by to purchase your raffle tickets and make a donation. The Midwest Dachshund Rescue is a not-for-profit organization. Trainer Kim Gardiner is proud to once again offer the “Sponsor a Rider” program. Simply submit the name of a child or an adult from your barn that would not have the opportunity to attend a “real” horse show. Our corporate sponsors have provided gift certificates that will cover the cost of the entry fees for 1 division, stall, paramedic & office fees. Please contact Carmine D’Aversa at 630-461-1925 to reserve your gift certificate.

"We are proud of our past horse shows and we hope you will find this year’s show even more exciting. We hope to see you August 4th through 7th," commented Gardiner.

Perfecta Farm has raised over $60,000 to date for the worthy cause. If you can't attend, you can still donate to the rescue by visiting their website here.

Special thanks to all of the sponsors, the amazing Perfecta Farm family, and all the raffle prize donors for making the show possible. Thank you also to the Midwest Dachshund Rescue for their work year-round and for finding the Dachshunds loving homes.

The dogs are winners too!

Come to show, have fun, help the dachshunds, and qualify for the IHJA "B" Medal Finals and the USHJA Outreach Festival!!
