Held in Rapid City, South Dakota, July 10-13, at the Central States Fairgrounds, the circuit drew 1,930 entries from across the nation.

Class numbers held steady throughout the show that offered a three-judge format the first two days and a double judge for the final two days. The show is sponsored by the Rapid City Quarter Horse Association, Center Of The Nation Quarter Horse Association and the Black Hills Riding Club. Laurel Walker Denton, Skull Valley, Arizona; Cindy Chilton-Moore, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma; Will Knabenshue, Whitesboro, Texas; Richard Spinks, Lake Cypress, Texas; and Bruce Army from Cave Creek, Arizona, were the judges for the 2015 BHSC.
