Step Up Schooling Series

Step Up Schooling Series

Welcome to the Step Up Schooling Series!

The Step Up Schooling Series is an opportunity to practice some jumping, in a horse show environment.

Perhaps you have a green horse. Perhaps you have not been in a show ring in a long time. Maybe it is a “new to you” horse.


Whatever the horse/rider combo this will be a safe, fun, and low stress outing for you as an introduction to showing. It is a great opportunity for those who want to move up to sanctioned EC horse shows and need a place to start.


We have a 20M by 60M show ring that will be right beside the 20M by 60M warm up ring.

There will be a senior competitor on site who can offer feedback to those riders who are looking to improve. There will be no ribbons or prizes, just come for training and fun BUT we will be offering lollipops for those who complete their course.

You will be able to bring your Coach in the warm up ring with you. Or anyone that is your “support” person.

You will get 10 minutes in the Show ring, as your ride time. Try any jumps you like, try them all, or let your horse look at anything they want. In the last 4 minutes of your 10-minute time spot, the judge will ring the bell for you to start if you haven’t started already. If you are ready before the 4-minute bell nod or wave to the judge who will ring the bell for you to start. Upon competing your course, you will have the option of receiving a lollipop and you can ask our senior competitor for any advice.


Please complete the entry form below. Email it along with your fees to Jennifer Hanson at jennhanson89@gmail.com.

The $20 entry fee includes two classes in your selected division. You may add additional classes for $5 per class with a maximum of 4 classes.
