There’s something a little different happening this week at Green Hill Park Equestrian Center in Salem, Virginia. The Botetourt County Horseman’s Association is holding an Evening Fun Show on Wednesday, July 13. The gates will open at 4 p.m. with the show to start at 5 p.m. with a Stick Horse Class.
The show will consist of 20 classes that include in-hand classes such as Model, Showmanship and Leadline, fun games such as Egg & Spoon and Ride-A-Buck, and the Command Class, and pleasure classes for all levels of riders. Lynda McGarry will judge. Dress will be casual so there is no need to find show clothes. Helmets are required by all riders. The show is sanctioned by Blue Ridge Horse Force.
Entry fees are $8 a class unless otherwise noted. Some classes will also include special prizes, including Class 19 for BCHA members. (Become a member here.) Entry fees for two classes will go to local nonprofit Barn Cat Buddies and to the Green Hill Equestrian Center’s effort to upgrade the footing at the facility (make a donation).
Advance registration is available if emailed by 5 p.m. Tuesday, July 12, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Advance entries will be entered into a drawing for a gift card.
