Our programs provide support & resources for local at-risk youth, teens, young adults & families in the Central Oregon region. Each year in July, J Bar J holds The Oregon High Desert Classic (OHDC) horse show. The 40-acre Ranch east of Bend is transformed into an exciting English Style Hunter Jumper event. Junior to Olympic level riders guide horses over colorful jumps on beautiful green fields with mountain views. Now in it’s 34th year, The Classics is the primary fundraiser for the programs for at-risk youth in Central Oregon.
