Horse Trials and Dressage Shows
We will be attending both recognized and unrecognized shows. Eventing is a very intense sport. It requires an abundance of dedication and time to safely compete at any level. To be able to attend a recognized show, you must own a horse or half-lease a Fox Ridge Stable horse.
In addition, you must be able to actively participate in a training program lead by Courtney, which includes:
* Off-property schooling for both cross-country and show jumping
* A fitness plan to ensure your horse is fit to compete
* Lessons for both dressage and jumping
* Attending show prep/training meetings
USEA (required) – The United States Eventing Association membership cost is $60-$85 depending on the age of the competitor.
CSDEA (optional) – The Central States Dressage and Eventing Association membership cost is $65.
Coaching – $50 per day
Hauling – $1 per mile
Hotel – Coach’s lodging will be split by students unless the coach is showing as well.
Approximate cost of entries per level (including stabling):
Starter – $250
Beginner Novice – $345

In addition to horse trials and dressage shows, we also attend several schooling and “fun” shows every year. This gives the younger riders a chance to relax and have fun with the horses, and gives the older youth and adult riders a chance to practice in a less formal venue before coompeting in recognized shows.
