Hamilton Hunt Schooling Shows0
Hamilton Hunt Club hosted its 2016 Horse Show End of the Year Banquet on October 21 at the lovely Grand Olympia in Stoney Creek. The 2016 year was full of success.
Hamilton Hunt Club installed two large 100 by 235′ sand rings for the 2016 horse show series, along with a spectators berm for families and friends to watch the show from above.
Hamilton Hunt schooling shows include a division for our “grasshopper” competitors. This division includes fun walk/trot classes which are completed on lead line. The next step up is our beginner division which has very inviting fences, simple courses to remember, and lots of opportunity for warm ups with your coach in the ring and is open to any rider in their first two years of showing.
The big arena had a bit of an overhaul. They like to use this ring as a “transitional ring”. The courses were set the same as they were at their Trillium show. There are lots of flowers and traditional hunter jumps. Again, there are lots of opportunities to see the jumps in scheduled schooling times, with your coach in the ring, as you choose.
Finally, since their focus is on learning, for both newer riders and or horses, they feel everyone should set their own goals as that is what makes the day successful. Sometimes you “win” just by getting to the show, dressed and ready to go. They believe everyone’s a winner. At our shows, everyone gets a prize upon entry to a division. We do however, honour our Champion and Reserve Champions, in the traditional way. Participant Prizes will be different at every show.
They also announced the addition of a Jumper series to the summer fun! With class heights for everyone as well as an Adults “happy hour” division (2’0-2’3).
