  • We welcome riders from area schools, their own backyards, and even other barns that don't have enough riders to form a team. Event riders and flat only riders are also welcome.
  • Riders do not need to own their own horse. We have lots of fun, especially showing as a team.
  • Riders show in up to five shows on the host team's horses. Classes are from walk-trot to open eq fences.
  • The season is from September to April, including regional, zone, and national finals.
