Our students do well at both local and national level shows. In 2011, four of our students were ranked in the top 15 on a national level. In 2012, one of our students was Reserve National Champion in Western Pleasure.
Horse show fees are as follows:
One day show (local and schooling): We get the horse/pony ready for the show. Haul it to the show and provide coaching for the child for all of their classes. The cost is $125 for the day plus you pay the entry fees, grounds fees, etc. directly to the show (usually $8 to 15 per class). If you own your horse and just want coaching for the day, the cost is $50. If it is a show that we had not planned to attend, the cost is $75 for the day.
One day Show (nationally ranked for points): We get the horse/pony ready for the show. Haul it to the show and provide coaching for the child for all of their classes. The cost is $175 for the day plus you pay the entry fees directly to the show (usually $15 per class). If you own your horse and want coaching for the day, the cost is $75. If it is not a show that we are attending, the cost is $100 per day for one instructor/coach plus travel and overnight accommodations (if necessary).
Two to four day shows: We get the horse/pony ready for the show for your child’s classes and haul it to the show. We also provide coaching for the classes. The cost is $175 per day that your child shows plus your split of the show costs for the pony/horse plus the accommodation costs for the coach/instructor such as meals, hotel, etc. For example: If two children are showing one pony, the cost will be split in half for the show. A stall runs around $75 for a show plus bedding so if two children are showing one pony, the cost to you would be $37.50 for the stall plus $10 for bedding. This is just an example. We would let you know the actual cost before entries are made for you. This would be in addition to the class costs. Class costs are usually $15 per class. Stall and class costs are paid by us prior to the show. You would pay us upon receipt of your invoice for the costs. We will give you copies of all the direct costs from the show entries. There is no markup on pony expenses for the show. You split or pay only for the actual costs.
We routinely show at Welsh Pony and Cob Society of America shows in the general area (MD and VA) for national points and rankings. Local show circuits are the Combined Eastern Shore Horse Show Association, (www.ceshs.com), Chesapeake Bay Horse Show Association and Karen’s Shows at Annett Farms. If there is interest in other shows, we will be happy to go to those too!
