Come for the entertainment, stay for the cause
Bring the family and join the equestrian community as we raise awareness and funds for charity!
You will be introduced to the exciting sport of show jumping in a fun and friendly environment.... and it's free!
Gates Open to the public at 430PM and admission is free. Voluntary donations will be accepted at the gate. The event starts with a live demonstration and auction, where the horse and rider entries for the night's class will jump two practice fences and the audience will bid on each one. You can bid too!! Those who are the successful bidders on the horses who place 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the class later on will get a piece of the pot!
Once the bidding is done, the horses will return for the main event at 6:30PM. Entries will be competing over a course of jumps that are each assigned a point value. The goal of the riders is to accumulate as many points as possible within the time allowed. Once their time is up, the rider will have the chance to add on to their points total by opting to jump the "JOKER" jump. the trick is that if they knock down the final jump, they deduct the points value from their total!
You can expect to be here for about 2.5 hours from start to finish. Voluntary donations to the charity are very appreciated and there will be hostesses on site to collect any donations.
Come dressed for the weather and bring a lawn chair. There are gourmet meat and veggie pies sold on site by the Pie Commission with all proceeds going to charity. We have a tent available for shade and shelter with a limited number of seats. There is lots of room for lawn seating. Washroom amenities are available on site.
No dogs allowed.
