Horse Shows

We encourage each of our riders to participate in horse show competitions; although it is not a requirement, we do encourage them to participate in competitions because it will allow them to demonstrate their skills as riders as well as their sportsmanship as competitors. Whether you are new to horse showing or are a seasoned competitor, we partake in horse shows that accommodate all skill levels.

Memberships are required to compete at certain horse shows.  Please use the “Link” tab to assist in finding the websites where you can become a member to horse show organizations in Orange County and the U.S. Should there be any confusion please see your trainer if you have any questions regarding what memberships are needed for which shows.
