National Horse Show ASPCA Maclay Championship
The National Horse Show ASPCA Maclay Championship has a rich history that reaches back as early as 1933. The first endeavor put forth by the organization called for amateur riders, 15 and under, to ride horses not exceeding 16 hands over a course of eight jumps that were no taller than three feet. The contenders were judged on their seat and control of their mounts. The “Horsemanship Cup” was donated by the late Alfred B. Maclay, an officer of the ASPCA and President of the National Horse Show from 1922-1924. Since that time, the Maclay Championship has been a significant presence in the Equestrian World, and cherished by those who have had the honor of competing.
