Parents- Do you have questions about the show this weekend?

SHOW PREP LETTER


We are having a show here at the farm on August 26th 8am Dressage, 9:00am Hunter, and then Jumper. Sunday, August 27th 12:00-4:00 is gymkhana aka games. Since many of you are new to showing I wanted to make a simple document to help you understand what to expect.

Friends and family are welcome to come and watch the show. We will also need volunteers for the day; please consider taking some time when you are not showing to help move jumps, help others saddle- etc. Concessions will be available to purchase throughout the day. Our menu this show is brisket, mac and cheese, bloody marys and chips- along with lots of treats.


Arrive at the farm between 7:00 and 7:30 AM for dressage 830 for Hunter/Jumper. This will give you time to sign up for classes and your child can begin saddling. There may be multiple people using the same horse/pony so the riders will work together to get the horse ready for each class. I will be in the big red barn for the dressage tests from 8am-9am. I hope to have a volunteer filling out registration forms.

I will be in the Big Red Barn for dressage but hope to have a volunteer signing This will give you time to sign up for classes and your child can begin saddling.

Attire: Your child should wear the schooling show clothes: Dressage is breeches, white shirt and show coat, Hunter is riding breeches with a polo shirt or show jacket, breeches, white shirt. Riding boots with half chaps or tall boats are required.




For Sunday’s show- jeans and a polo or collared western shirt for Gymkhana. Helmets and a heeled shoe are required. English attire is also ok for Gymkhana.

If numbers are given out, they will be tied around the rider’s waist. PAYMENT: Cost of show is posted at the barn. Payments excepted via venmo, cash or check.


Classes: Plan to show one level below what you are practicing in lessons. For example, if you are learning to canter in group lessons show in walk-trot class. If you are beginning to jump 2 foot in lessons, stick with showing 18 inches. Check with one of the trainers if you are unsure what classes would be best.


Let us know if you have any questions. Also, if anyone wants to get into a last-minute lesson before Saturday/Sunday let us know ASAP. Thanks and see you then!
