The horse show is in its 25th year and is the largest horse show in the northwest.

 

Diane Johnson has been coordinating the High Desert Classic since the beginning.  She says 13 hundred horses wil l be here during the next couple weeks.

 

"The demographics of what they figure is three people for each horse.  We're kind of quiet about this event, but that's a lot of people for the next two weeks. 85 percent of the people are coming from out of the area and they eat, play, shop and sleep here.  It brings in a tremendous amount of money to the city of Bend."

 

Four thousand peopel are expected to travel to Bend for the two week Oregon High Desert Classic.  It will start this Wednesday and run through Sunday July 28th.

 

It is the only fundraiser for J Bar J Youth Services -- that helps at risk youth.
