Limited to 12 riders/handlers per session

 This event will not have a professional clinician. There will be trail obstacles set up for practice and familiarization.
All Horse and Pony and 4-H Rules apply.

8:00-9:30am  Trail in Hand
9:30-11:00am Beginner Trail (under saddle)
11:00am-12:30pm Intermediate Trail (under saddle)
1:00-2:30pm Intermediate Trail (under saddle)
2:30-4:00pm Advanced Trail (under saddle)

Riders/handlers may only enter one session:

Beginner – horse/riders who have not shown in trail class before or are 1st or 2nd year project members with limited trail class experience.  Horse/riders will work on developing skills such as forward, lateral, and backing movements through and around obstacles.  The focus will be on improving confidence as a team while practicing common obstacles such as a bridge, gate, over poles, backing through poles and other obstacles while under saddle.  This session would be appropriate for walk/trot participants.

Intermediate – horse/riders who have shown in trail before and who practice trail obstacles at home.  Horse/riders should already be capable of forward, lateral, and backing movements through and around obstacles.  

Advanced – horse/riders who have shown in trail class before, and who regularly practice using trail obstacles at home, and/or placed red or blue at the fair.   Participants in this session will work on completing a pattern which requires more difficult forward, lateral and backing movements through and around obstacles.

Trail in-hand — young horses and/or inexperienced handlers who need to develop confidence and skill working through and around obstacles on the ground.  Participants who have never worked through obstacles with their animal should start in this session and not under saddle.  Focus is to develop more confidence and skills to improve forward, lateral and backing movements from the ground.

This is a pre-registration event: if you need to cancel from the event you must contact the event coordinator at least 48 hours prior to the start of the event.  You must also have a verbal or email confirmation from the event coordinator.
