Development Shows

2021 Development Shows – Hunter Equitation

We were able to run two successful Development Shows in 2020 following safety protocols and still leaving plenty of room for fun and learning. We hope to run as many as 10 competitions in 2021, including two evening shows devoted to adult riders in June and July.

Dates and details will be available in the coming months.

 

 

Hunter Jumper Shows

2021 Hunter Jumper Shows

We ran one Hunter Jumper show in 2020. Derby Day, in September, sold out and competitors were able to enjoy some of the staples of this annual event – The Jumper Derby, Hunter Derby and Hunter Classic along with a variety of hunter and jumper classes and divisions. Running carefully planned events in 2020 gave us the confidence and familiarity with necessary safety practices that we can continue to implement next year and expand as necessary. It also gave those who attended confidence that they can enjoy the sport that they love, following the guidelines and even have it feel somewhat like a normal horse show day. There were even benefits such as assigned riding times which allowed competitors to know when to arrive, when they would compete and when they would be finished and ready to head back home.

We expect to be back to running Trillium and Bronze shows in 2021, though these will be modified competitions in order to maintain a safe environment for competitors, staff and officials. Fun and engaging competitions will still be our priority.

Details and dates coming soon.

Dressage Shows

2021  Dressage Shows

We ran one competition for Gold, Silver and ESD competitors in 2020. The event sold out and we had to add an extra show ring. We used a paperless show system that streamlined all aspects of the management of the show and with no paper, there was no need for contact with competitors having tests and scores sent right to their phone.

In 2021 we have plans for two Gold Shows (July 17 and September 18), three Silver and three ESD Shows (June 5, July 17 and September 18). We will also include dressage classes at some of our Development Shows. Our overall goal is to allow competitors at all levels the opportunity to enjoy dressage shows in a safe environment.

More details in the coming months.
