NCHJA Membership Reminder
With this being a new show year, please make sure to renew your membership with the NCHJA to accumulate points towards a year-end NCHJA award that you could receive at their banquet. Renew or purchase your first NCHJA membership at their website. Both young entry and long stirrup are now NCHJA rated and eligible for year-end rewards so everyone is encouraged to join.
Third Annual Triton Stables Equitation Finals!
This year marks the third Triton Stables equitation finals hosted at the farm at the end of the year. Riders will accumulate points all year in equitation classes in their respective divisions and the top 12 riders will be invited to compete in Equitation Finals. At the finals, qualifying riders will first complete an over-fences course. The riders with the eight highest scores after the over-fences phase will be asked back to complete a flat phase. After the flat phase, the top four riders will complete a test. Riders that compete at 18 inches to 2 foot 3 inches will compete against each other in the Wee Equitation finals which will be separate from those that compete at 2 foot 6 inches and up. This is great practice for riders that may want to compete in NCHJA Equitation finals or any other high-level equitation at some point in their career. No one else is offering this opportunity at any other show, so we strongly encourage you to participate!
Mark your calendars! Triton Shows for 2019:
