Family and Friends Enjoy “Luckey Thirteen” Winter Show Series!

Home Show Crowd Web PostWe just love it when family and friends are on the rail to cheer on their young and not always so young riders at our horse shows and it all starts at those all important weekly lessons.  That’s one reason why we teach parents, as well as children and all riders, to care for the ponies or horses before and after each lesson and to learn the fine art of “tacking”.   Most parents, especially during the early lessons, are on hand to watch the lesson and monitor their child’s progress.  We encourage that and are happy to talk with parents about their child’s riding goals and abilities at any time.  Once secure in the saddle at the walk and trot, we also encourage our students to start showing at our Winter Series Shows, held November through March once a month (see our calendar for dates and times).   These shows provide the perfect venue for beginning showers in our Pre-Short Equitation Division that features four individual classes:  Walk, Walk/Trot, Walk/Trot/Canter, and one Cross-Rail or course of poles.  This Division allows the beginner to start with just two classes if they are not yet ready to canter or jump a cross-rail and then work their way up to doing all four classes.  Once secure in this Division, most riders are ready to move up to Short Stirrup Equitation (also available to adults as Long Stirrup), where riders perform at the walk, trot and canter on the flat and two jump rounds of four jumps, either cross-rails or verticals.  Winter Shows also offer a Fun Class (a horseback version of musical chairs for instance or perhaps a dollar bareback contest) and an array of more advanced Divisions (Pleasure, Equitation and Hunter Divisions) for more accomplished riders.  We also have a Winter Series Banquet in late March (see calendar) that carries the series theme with decorations and activities in addition to dinner and the all important series award ribbons and annual Stonehouse Stables Awards such as the SurfNSands Perpetual Horsemanship Award and the My Pal Al Sportsmanship Award.  All in all, the winter shows provide a great start as well as an opportunity to keep in shape or tune-up for the regular Capital Horse Shows Association show season (Spring, Summer, and Fall).  Perhaps best of all, we have a great time in a family-friendly atmosphere.  Parents, grandparents, siblings, friends, friendly competitors – one and all, come enjoy our Winter Series Shows!  We hope to SEE YOU THERE!

PS – Prize lists and entry forms are available on our website under the Shows Tab and are downloadable as PDF documents.
