2024 Show Dates

2024 Show Dates are SET!

Our Show Committee has been working hard to develop this coming seasons show schedule and has done their best to work around the "BIG" shows. 

Two NEW Shows are being trialed this year.....

1.)  ALL CART Game Show!  These classes will be all timed events, and cart horses are restricted to w/t for safety reasons.  This show will also have a ground driving division for those who have horses not yet in shafts.

2.)  Open Trail Show!  This show will feature all of our normal trail classes (which are being removed from the Open shows) PLUS Handiness Classes & Working English Equitation Classes!  All Double Pointed!

We will update you on the judges as they are approved. Looking for an AWESOME 2024 Show Season!
