Foothills Riding Club hosts panel on horse showing June 23

Published 2:50 pm Monday, June 21, 2010

On Wednesday, June 23, a panel of local trainers, competitors and judges will discuss the ins-and-outs of horse showing in dressage and eventing. The meeting takes place at the FENCE main house.

To braid or not to braid? What happens if I go off course? Does my horse have to be a certain size? Whatever shall I wear! From the official rules of each discipline, to show etiquette, prep and equipment, bring your questions and curiosity. No question is too basic or too complex.

The discussion will be helpful to beginner and more experienced competitors, riders who are thinking about showing, non-horsey parents of young riders, trainers and their students, spectators who would like to learn more, horse show volunteers and potential volunteers, and anyone who is curious about what goes on at a horse show.
