LEXINGTON (WSLS 10) – A long standing tradition that was cancelled last year is making a comeback, but in a different location.

The Roanoke Valley Horse Show was held at the Salem Civic Center for 43 years.

It was cancelled last year due to lack of sponsorship. Although money has been an issue in the past, the show is back on in 2016.

John Nicholson, CEO of the Virginia Horse Center says they are delighted to be part of the renewal of one of the biggest horse shows in the nation.

“This is classic win, win, win,” Nicholson said. “This is a win in that it makes sure that this traditional horse show continues. It’s a win for all of the charities that benefit in Roanoke. And it’s a win for the Virginia Horse Center because we can proudly show off our facility to more people.”

The Roanoke Valley Horse show is June 20 – 25.
