The SPHO-NJ is a non-profit organization founded to promote the Standardbred as a pleasure riding and driving horse by exposing the public to their performances through equine events. Whatever the discipline is, eventing, western pleasure, driving, hunter/jumper, trail riding or dressage, our mission is to let the public know that the standardbred is a very versatile breed.
We offer an extensive show series, re-training clinics, ride/drives, parades, paces and exhibitions to promote the breed. Our program also includes Mid-Atlantic and State year-end awards.
Our monthly meetings are open to all members and the newsletter keeps everyone updated on performance events and all SPHO activities. All horse lovers are welcome. Owning a standardbred is not a prerequisite for membership.
