Our Approach

We believe that Horse Showing should be fun and educational, as well as competitive.  We pride ourselves in providing opportunities where our exhibitors can feel comfortable learning and growing as equestrians and where all levels are welcome!

Our Story

BHC Management was founded in 2004 by Naomi Gauruder.  We provide horse show management and secretarial services for competitions at all levels. From Grass Roots Schooling shows up through USEF Premiere "AA" Rated competitions, no show is too big or too small!
