About

Mid-week blues? Join us for these quick, fun, and casual events featuring divisions Modified – Introductory. Perfect for young horses, or those wanting to move up a level, or just starting to event. 

We schedule backwards from dusk and start as early as entries warrant. We will run multiple dressage rings and offer Full Horse Trials, Combined Tests (Dressage and Show Jumping only) and Dressage only. (No fix-a-tests)

  • The cross country course is made up 12 to 16 jumps with a length up to 1700m.

  • Riders may choose which level to jump at each marked obstacle (Intro – Modified).

  • As long as you jump clean on the first attempt, you will accrue no XC faults. 

  • You may circle around and jump the same set of jumps at a higher level if desired and this will not result in a TE. 

  • You may also jump any unflagged jump on the way to your next numbered obstacle.  These will not be judged but are part of the schooling event. 

  • If another rider is coming while schooling a numbered jump, please move to the side to allow the other rider to continue.
