C.A. School Show- 2018 – 2019 Series

  School shows are open to All students, all ages and abilities.  We’ve designed the show to teach riders what is is like to compete on horseback.  Classes test skills and speed.  To enter the show:  read thru the classes, what each one expects of the rider and determine which ones you’d like to try.  Pick out the horse you know the best to compete on.(never pick one you haven’t ridden before)  Use an entry form which will be in the office and sign up.  Try to sign up before the show(this helps me to plan), although you may sign up the day of the show.  Spectators are of course welcome – Please consider the weather and bring a chair and food and drink comforts.

6 ribbons are awarded in each class.  Points are awarded with each ribbon.  1st – 7pts, 2nd – 5pts, 3rd – 4pts, 4th – 3pts, 5th – 2pts, 6th – 1 pt. The rider of the Western division/English division who has the most points will receive a championship ribbon, Reserve Champion to the 2nd highest points.  Classes 1-10 will count for English 11-19 for Western.  Points will be saved from Show to show, the Riders accumulating the most points over the 2015 – 2016 series will receive a High point Championship Ribbn and a $40.00 Gift Card to Champion saddlery.  Reserve Champion receives a High Point Championship Ribbon.

Horsemanship and Equitation classes are Posture classes.  Riders compete against each other being judged on their form, as well as on their control of their horse at the gate desired by the judge.  Reining classes are posted patterns that are judged on the horse and riders accuracy in performing the pattern with great horsemanship.  Gymkhanna classes – Keyhole, Barrels and Flag Race are all speed classes.

To be ready for your 9 am class, Riders should arrive 30 minutes early to prepare.  All other riders can arrive at 9 to sign up with Mrs Sandy.  Riders are asked to stay at the bleacher area until called to the barn for your class.  Once you complete your class, riders are asked to return to the spectator area.  This is for the safety of all in the barn.
