INFO: Time to try something a little bit different! The Showmanship Challenge is designed to test your overall skills. It is all about the rider/handler. Your horse is merely a prop! It comprises 3 sections initially - an inhand presentation, a ridden work out, then an equitation round over small fences (show hunter style).
There are 3 levels, you enter based on what jump height you are comfortable with, maximum height 70cm! Each of these classes is judged individually, then the scores are combined and the top 4 riders in each of the levels go on to do a dressage test - again judged on rider not horse. It is about accuracy of the movements, effectiveness, etc. Placings are given for the test and the overall Champion and Reserve for the day. Some lovely prizes are on offer!
The day will start at 9.30am for the first group with the inhand presentation. Horses are to be in bridles only for this. The next groups will start at 10.00 and 10.30am approx. You do your workout then gear up for your ridden, then change any items necessary and on to your jump round. Once the jumping is completed you will have a break for lunch, the placings for the 3 morning classes are presented, then the Dressage phase will start for the 12 qualified riders. Awards for the Dressage and Overall winners will be done on completion of the day. Come and give it a go!!!
Section 1 (max height 50cm) 9.30am
Section 2 (max height 60cm) 10.00am
