So much more than a horse show!
The Pin Oak Charity Horse Show is known for its rich history, time-honored traditions, and equestrian excellence since its inception in 1945.
It is also known for its legacy of charitable giving to support the healing of sick children. In addition the financial donations made to our charities, Pin Oak engages in outreach with our charities throughout the year:
Texas Children’s Hospital – Main and West Campus
Whether is the creative and fun Welcome Desk decorations at West Campus or herds of Pin Oak ponies unleashed at both Main and West Campus, Pin Oak supports the healing of sick children throughout the year. Pin Oak participates in the Texas Children’s Family Fun Run, Teddy Bear Clinic, What’s Up Doc? and serves as a Texas Children’s Ambassador.
Pin Oak has created the Ten for Teens program at the West Campus, supports the Rememberance Event, and honors children who have overcome so much medically and serve as ambassadors of hope as our annual Honored Heroes. We also provide Puppet Kits for the Child Life rooms, show ribbons to share with these children who are true champions, and Pin Oak coloring books to enjoy while waiting for outpatient procedures, follow-up appointments, or hospital stays. ArtReach in the Texas Children’s Cancer Center is always a fun and special day for Pin Oak and the kiddos receiving care.
Pin Oak Charity Horse Show is proud to leave its hoof print of hope for all the children and families needing the care of Texas Children’s Hospital.
Texas Children’s Hospital
Pin Oak Charity Horse Show is the oldest nonprofit partner of Texas Children’s Hospital. Making the first donation in 1947 to begin the planning and building of the hospital, Pin Oak continues its legacy of giving today. Pin Oak has donated nearly $7 million dollars to support the healing of sick children and is committed to supporting the growth of Texas Children’s.
In 2014, Pin Oak began a new commitment to the new state-of-the-art Sports Medicine Center at the West Campus of Texas Children’s. Pin Oak’s total giving to this new hospital will be $1.25 million dollars. At West Campus, Pin Oak’s giving has included:
- $300,000 Oncology and Hematology
- $400,000 Child Life Services
- $550,000 Sports Medicine Center Fellow
Texas Children’s Hospital is also launching a new initiative, to build a third campus, this time in The Woodlands, Texas. Pin Oak Charity Horse Show once again is at the forefront of giving and has made an initial pledge of $100,000 in 2014. The new facility is slated to open in 2017.
