​SCHOOLING (NON-COMPETE) ONLY  Entry Fee: $20
This feature enables riders with green horses or instructors with inexperienced riders the opportunity to experience the competition environment without the added challenge of actually competing.  An entry form must be submitted in advance (good practice in filling out the forms!) with a Coggins, and then the horse and rider will be permitted on the grounds during the Horse Trial. The Schooling Only option entitles a rider to use the warm-up areas to school on the flat or to practice a few warm-up jumps but riders may not enter any competition rings or courses. Schooling Only riders will need to check in with the Show Secretary and will receive a pinny to wear for identification.

 

ALL HORSES ON THE SHOW GROUNDS MUST BE REGISTERED WITH THE SHOW SECRETARY IN ADVANCE,

ALONG WITH SUBMISSION OF A NEGATIVE COGGINS. 

ALL RIDERS MUST WEAR THEIR NUMBER PINNIES WHEN MOUNTED.


REMINDER TO ALL RIDERS - NO UNAUTHORIZED ASSISTANCE!!


This means no one else can ride your horse in a warm-up, your friends/family/trainer cannot point the way or talk to you in ANY of the three phases. This is your day...show us what YOU can do! Remember to remind your family, friends and trainer before you ride NOT to talk to you when you are being judged. Don't let them disqualify you!  Unfortunately, YOU lose (elimination) if a family member or trainer breaks the rules!!

 

Cross-Country Fall Rule:
If in the first fall of competitor, he/she lands on their feet and remains standing, the rider must get the approval of the Technical Delegate to remount and if so, may continue with a penalty of 65 points.  This is similar to the rule that the USEA has instituted and we have decided to add the approval of the TD for remounting for safety reasons at this level.
