LISA WALKER Vice President, Uxbridge Horsemen’s Association Inc.
UXBRIDGE: Uxbridge’s beautiful Elgin Park will be busy this summer. The Uxbridge Horsemen’s Association brings the Schooling Show Series there, including an expanded english division, halter, western riding and speed events.
Show Director Diane Smullen says, “We look forward to welcoming new riders and their mounts and seeing our returning riders and members this year. Bring your kids, young horses, beginner riders or anyone who wants to get some good show experience in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. We have something for everyone, English with expanded jump classes, western, line classes and speed events!
“The show includes a varied roster of classes, starting with halter and showmanship, an English Division including a few jumping classes, and after lunch we get into the speed events, where competitors show off their lightning fast mounts and excellent equestrian skills. Some classes like Command and Trail have both disciplines competing together. Leadline and Beginner Walk/Trot Jog classes help to induct young riders into the show arena, in a friendly and fun way! There are ribbons to 6th place in all classes, and thanks to our generous sponsors there are also prizes in many of the classes as well.
“The UHA Schooling Shows are affordable; classes are only $5 for members of the Uxbridge Horseman’s Association and $10 for non-members.
“The shows are scheduled once a month, with the first show on Sunday, May 27th. The following dates are Sunday, June 24th, Sunday, July 8th, [and] Sunday, August 12th. The final show will be held in a grand 2 day event, at the Uxbridge Fall Fair, on Saturday, September 8th and Sunday September 9th.
“The UHA has been running these shows, for several years now, and has helped to bring horses back to Elgin Park and share our sport with all of Uxbridge. The show is open to everyone and will be great fun for kids and adults alike!”
