On November 8, we will hold our first ever Shakerag Benefit Combined Test Schooling Show and Hunter Trials, featuring the best of both the eventing and hunter disciplines combined into one show.
Connie Washburn is heading a new team of members including Jess Cardot, Allisa Huestis and Jenna Schuh who are bringing you a brand new version of the Hunter Trials to be held at Oxer Farm in Clermont, GA.
The morning format features five levels of combined training classes - CT rounds include a dressage test plus a stadium jumping round. Our own Kelly Eaton will judge the dressage tests.
At the lunch break, John Eaton will blow the horn to signal the start of the Hunter Trials program and will parade the hounds to get things under way.
Gwen Bradley returns as judge for the Hunter Trials portion of the show.
We will have displays of hunt attire and memorabilia, plus a colorful Masters Class to kick off the afternoon with a ride around the field followed by exhibitors, all behind John and Hounds.
We are banking on a big turnout from Shakerag members as well as our fans in the community who turn out to ride in the show.
Members not planning to ride have an opportunity to volunteer for the day and come out and show the flag for Shakerag and exhibitors. All proceeds from the show will go to Shakerag.
Check out the flyer below for all the details, including a prize list of classes and fees, plus a schedule for the day.
