Horsemanship Challenge Guidelines


PURPOSE: The Horsemanship Challenge is designed to promote Saddle Seat riding and sportsmanship in a competition atmosphere for riders in the Southeast. The format of this event was chosen to showcase the rider's ability. This competition is open to all advanced non-professional riders, ages 13 and up. 


FORMAT: Suitable lesson type horses will be used. For the 1st round, riders will compete on the horse they bring.  For the 2nd round, all riders will draw a horse they have not previously ridden to compete. A brief supervised 5 minute warm up is allowed. The horses may be any breed and compete in show or work bridles. Riders will wear helmets, jods, boots and Challenge shirt (provided).


This is considered a "Special Event”; therefore, academy riders are eligible if they are advanced riders capable of handling various horses.
