The Show debuted in Houston on May 26, 1945 at J.S. Abercrombie’s Pin Oak Stables with the proceeds given to charity. In very short order this annual event became THE social show of the season.
In 1948, Pin Oak began a long-term commitment to raise funds to construct, and later support, Texas Children’s Hospital, which opened in Houston in 1954.
Pin Oak is one of the only horse shows in the nation that features not only hunters and jumpers, but also fine saddle and gaited horses, Welsh Ponies
