The series is dedicated to providing an affordable horse show experience for emerging riders and horses. It is a great place for beginning riders to learn about show horses and for trainers to bring their more advanced students and horses to get some horse show miles before the bigger shows.

Riders can join the association and accumulate points for year-end awards. A small fee will be charged for each class and stalls will be available for rent. Membership applications and show entry forms can be downloaded from

The public is invited to come enjoy the day at Harmon Field and cheer on the riders and horses. Admission is free. As always, the horse community’s help is sought to ensure the success of the schooling show format, through monetary sponsorships and or volunteering.
