The Hunter/Jumper Show Team, Western Club, and Saddle Seat Club will collaborate to host the event.

The show begins with jumpers at 4 p.m. Friday, hunters at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, and western and saddle seat classes at 9:30 a.m. Sunday.

Entry fees are $15 per class for hunters and jumpers and $10 per class for saddle seat and western. Classes include Hunter Hack, Western Pleasure, English Pleasure, Equitation, 3-Gaited and 5-Gaited Pleasure, Pairs Relay, Hunters, Jumpers, Ground Rails, and Cross Rails and others.

“I’m really looking forward to helping run this show and ride in it because it is relaxed but still has a competitive edge. This will be my last winter fun show, as I graduate in the spring, so I’m pretty excited to be a part of it,” said Caydie Bennett, president of the Hunter/Jumper Show Team.
