Joyce and her Father, James W. Berger, also began several top horse shows in the state of Alabama, beginning with The Alabama State Championship Charity Horse show, in 1970. This show was one of the top shows in the South and was in the Southern Circuit, which included, Baton Rouge,La., Montgomery Southern Championship, Southeastern Charity, Atlanta, Geogia.  In 1988, B-W Stables suffered a horrific barn fire, it was then the show was handed down to the Alabama Saddlebred Assoc. and continues to be a top show.  But as Joyce bounced back, she started another top notch show, The Al. Spring Charity, witch is now the Mid South Spring Premiere, turning that show over to the Al Saddlebred Assoc, in order to  further the Saddlebred industry as a whole by starting the National Academy Championship Finals which is an phenomenon in itself. Last year 834 entries from 19 states participated in this unique one of a kind show for the Academy Riders, and to dates has raised over $289,000 for its charity St. Jude's Children's Hospital.
