Holiday Schooling Show & Team Try-outs - Friday, January 5th

Hey Raynham Riders,

We are having our Holiday Schooling show the evening of Friday, January 5th.  As always, schooling shows are open to ALL Raynham Stables students.  Our schooling shows are low-stress, a great learning opportunity as well as a ton of fun!   Instead of having a concession stand, we thought we could do a pot-luck again like last year, which was delicious!

For those hoping to compete in 2018, please indicate "Show Team" in the "Questions?" box on the entry form.  Please also fill out a show team application and submit by December 15th.

In case the weather is chilly, we are going to run using our winter format again this year. Riders will complete a dressage flat class then an equitation over fences round.  This way, all the classes will last approx. 1 hour so riders don't have to wait around all day in the cold!
