You don’t have to compete in recognized events to be an eventer, and thanks to venues like Barnstaple South, Stable View, Carolina Horse Park, Copper Meadows and many others all over the country, schooling show opportunities are a great option to experience the sport in a more accessible way. Whether you’re new to riding or eventing, you’re showing a young horse the ropes, or you simply want to give your well-stretched wallet a break, finding quality schooling shows is the perfect solution.
Barnstaple South, which began its popular Jackpot Schooling Show series this year, has been hard at work making improvements to its offerings, and the next show on September 12 promises to have plenty of fun for all.
Featuring among these exciting upgrades and improvements are:
- A clinic with the dressage judge of the show on the Saturday before each of the schooling shows on the fall calendar
- Videography services from Richard Equine Video in September and November with recorded commentary from the judge
- Free cross country coursewalks led by local professional each Friday before the schooling show
- Cross country courses flagged and numbered for schooling the week leading up to the show
- Use of high-quality show arenas at neighboring HITS Ocala for dressage and show jumping
Each Jackpot Schooling Show promises to be a grand time for all involved — and there is always the opportunity to win some of your entry costs back in these unique classes! To send in your entry for the next show on September 12 or to sign up for any of the other upcoming fall shows, click here.
