HOW IT WORKS: Riders will be performing obstacles simultaneously in order to keep the event moving.
Riders will carry with them their "Ride Card" which they will hand to the judge at each obstacle. Each obstacle will be judged on a 1-10 scale in three categories: rider skill, horse response, smoothness of performance. Riders are not required to complete all of the obstacles in order to compete.
  • RIDER SKILL = horsemanship, balance, technicality of riding skills, communication with horse, coordination and dexterity, and general "at ease" appearance
  • HORSES RESPONSE = technical performance skills, responsiveness, calm demeanor, bravery, obedience
  • SMOOTHNESS OF PERFORMANCE = quick but un-rushed performance with calm and smooth movements
Obstacles would include a mix of the following to incorporate all levels of riders:
  • Teeter Totter
  • Short Tire Climb
  • Tall Tire Climb
  • Opening and Closing Gates
  • Mailbox Pony Express
  • Blindfolded Horse (in hand)
  • Sidepass Beam
  • L-shaped or Figure-8 Back Up
  • Ground Mount
  • Pole Pick Up
  • Around the World
  • Sac or Pole Drag
  • Ring Tilting (extra points for canter, ½ points for walk)
  • Carwash
  • And more as I get creative....


Each show will consist of 4 games, one speed class, one technical class, one ground class, and one team class. To keep it fresh and exciting, games wouldn't be announced until the night of the show.
