Schooling shows are an excellent opportunity for new riders or green horses to participate in the competitive atmosphere of larger shows, for a fraction of the cost in a welcoming and warm community.
Benefit Shows provide funds for the park that pay for upkeep, maintenance, and new features.
Come Support Your Local Horse Park by cheering on competitors, buying logo merchandise, making generous donations (of any amount), and buying memberships for yourself and your family.
Prizes will be awarded for first place finishes in all classes except lead line. We will also be awarding Champion and Reserve Champion ribbons for all Hunter Divisions as well as High Point for Jumper Classes.
Open Schooling Days are on Sept 30th and Oct 1st. Whether or not you enter in the show, bring your horse for schooling in the Main Arena. It’s a great way to get some practice in and see all your friends at the same time! The Main Arena will be set up with a selection of Hunter and Jumper obstacles and there will be a volunteer on the ground to help with gates and fences. Please check the calendar for updated schedules.
Hunter Jumper Show Information:
What types of competition will I see at a hunter/jumper show?
There are three main divisions at a hunter/jumper horse show: hunter, jumper and equitation. In all three, a rider guides a horse over a set course of obstacles in a ring. However, each is scored differently. The jumper discipline is scored based on the objective speed and accuracy the rider has over the course. Hunter and Equitation are based on a subjective judge of form over the course, with hunter classes focusing on the form of the horse and equitation classes focusing on the form of the rider.
How are the jumper classes scored?
For all Jumper Classes at this show we will be scoring on the Table IV sec 2b. This means that riders will attempt the course and if horse and rider successfully complete the course under the time allowed set by the course designer and also do not knock down any rails on the jumps, then they will stay in the arena until the judge starts their jump-off course. In the jump-off, the riders who went clear in the first round go around a shortened course, and the fastest rider with the fewest rails down wins.
