Students in the Equine Studies (EQS) 220: Management of Equine Events class are learning how to plan, organize and run multi-discipline horse shows this semester. The EQS 220 students are planning the Spring Show Series, Spring Combined Test, Summer Show Series, Summer Combined Test and Fall Halloween Show.
Students are in charge of the Spring Show Series and the Spring Combined Test (show jumping and dressage) under the direction of Risa Hurst, adjunct instructor for Equestrian Studies.
Dates for the Spring Show Series are Mar. 29, Apr. 19 and May 9, the date for the Combined Test is Apr. 12. Division points will be tallied and ranked at the final show for overall champion awards. Riders that enter the same class (i.e. Hunter Hack) at each show have the opportunity to win an overall award with that class. Combined Test scores are not eligible for overall awards.
The Summer Show Series, Summer Combined Test and Fall Halloween show are semester-long projects. Official class lists and entry forms will be released by email once finalized. Early entry submission is encouraged. The show is open to students and outside competitors with updated health paperwork. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
