Judge: Kim Roe, r, Washington
We’ll run this event as a clinic combined with a licensed show.
Friday evening (starting at 6 pm): clinic, focusing on dressage and learning the WE dressage tests.
Saturday morning – either compete or ride a schooling ride – WE Dressage Test. Either way, you will receive written feedback from our judge, Kim Roe.
Saturday afternoon/evening – focus on learning the obstacles. We will set obstcles up in the arena, but they will not be the official course. We’ll have obstacles that will not be part of Sunday’s show, and things will be set up in different places.
Sunday morning – everyone will help set the official course, followed by a course walk with the judge — the judge will walk participants through expectations for each of the obstacles, as well as answer questions.
Once the course walk is over, we’ll run the Ease of Handling trial. Participants will either compete or ride a schooling ride. Either way, you will receive written feedback from our judge, Kim Roe.
Sunday afternoon – re-set the course for Speed and course walk, focusing on learning how to set your horse up for success. Once the course walk is over, we’ll run the Speed trial. Participants will either compete or ride a schooling ride. Because this event includes both a clinic and a show, those who compete at the Intro level in the show are welcome to come back in to try out a Speed round as clinic participants.
Entry Fee: $250 to participate in just the show; $350 to do the show and the clinic.
Tack Stall: $100
(OHC Boarders who do not need stabling can request a $100 discount because they don’t need a stall)
Entry fees include first bag of shavings, and stabling from Friday, 1 pm (honestly — NO EARLIER — if you arrive prior to 1 pm on Friday, please plan to pay a ‘haul in fee’ to OHC and amuse yourself in the main facility rather than coming to the Prairie Arena). Additional bags of shavings can be purchased on site for $10/bag.
PLEASE DO NOT BRING OUTSIDE SHAVINGS IN — we are charged an extra $35 per stall if any outside shavings are used.
Camping is available on site — please make reservations directly with the Oregon Horse Center if you are planning to camp (we do not handle the camping spot reservations at all).
To compete, riders must be current members of USAWE, and all horses must be recorded with USAWE. If you are participating for schooling only, this requirement is waived.
Full refunds if you are unable to attend due to a true medical emergency (COVID exposure, sickness, medically unsound to ride). Otherwise, entry fees (less $50 processing fee) can be applied to another competition hosted by Working Equitation Oregon.
