    Hunter Course - Exhibitors and Horse should portray the appearance of following an actual country course.  Jumps may
    include a simulated brick wall, hedges, chicken coops, etc.  The pace should be brisk as in a trot or canter, but must maintain
    the stride  throughout the entire course.  Three refusals will result in elimination.  Faults include knockdowns, and circling more
     than once.  Elimination:  Three refusals, fall of horse/and or exhibitor, being off course, or crossing own path.  Knockdowns are
    also considered by the Judge when placing the class.  Jumps should be 20 feet apart and are  usually at a lower height than the
    Jumper Course.  Hunter jumps  will likely be set at 24."  Hunter Classes are for mature horses. Course Walk-thru and
    Demonstration before Hunter Classes begin.

     

    Jumper Classes - Jumping Classes are judged on accumulated faults which include Knockdowns- 4 Faults,
    Circle more than once -4       Faults, First Refusal 4 Faults, Third  Refusal Elimination.
    If there is a tie of for the first go round, rails will be raised 4" Third tie,  timed jumpoff  (jumping the course again) will take place with those jumpers who tied. The same horse cannot be shown twice in same class number.  Jumper classes are designed for mature horses.
     Course Walk thru before Class begins. 

     

    Country Pleasure Driving Classes - This event is judged primarily on the suitability of the horse to provide a relaxed,
    pleasurable drive in the countryside.  To be shown both ways in the arena at a WALK, SLOW TROT, and STRONG TROT. 
     
     Drivers will then be asked to enter the center of the ring and line up in a row.  Headers (Adult to stand in front of the Horse)
     may enter the ring at  lineup.  Each Driver will then be asked to reign back (Back up).   Clothing should be relevant to the drive,
    women generally  select a long skirt or dress, and a hat and men a jacket and a hat, western or a sports coat and hat.  Driving Classes
     are for mature horses.


    Race - There will be 3 Separate Lanes for each race with each Driver having their  own lane.   There will be cone or other
     object at each  end of the lane and the object is to circle to object twice with a steady trot.    The second break in trot will
    result in elimination.  The first horse to cross the finish line without breaking a trot more than once will be declared the winner.  
     Additional races may  be required to determine Champions if entries are greater than 3 racers at a time for the Class.  
      Helmets are advised for all and are required for youths.  Racing Classes are for mature horses.


    Roadster - Drivers enter the ring clockwise and turn and reverse when asked by the Judge.  Drivers stay on the rail at
    all times unless  passing on the outside.  Vehicle may be of any type, usually, a two-wheeled vehicle without a basket and
     stirrups for the feet.  The principal gaitis TROT,  (Slow, Fast, and Faster) the SLOW JOG TROT, and the faster ROAD GAIT
     and  then the full extended DRIVE ON TROT. If a horse that has demonstrated the three gaits should suddenly break
     the trot, the horse will not be penalized.

     A horse that has NOT demonstrated the THREE GAITS should NOT  be placed over a horse who has demonstrated
    the three gaits successfully.   Adult Headers are required at lineup.  The Drivers will not be asked to reign back.   
    Roadster Classes are for mature horses.  An Adult Riders may  accompany Entry Level Adults and Youths. 
     Any interference or verbal instruction to the Driver will result in elimination.
