The Triton Stables 2017 show season is almost over! Check out our updated Triton Points and come show with us on November 18! We’ve made a few changes to our show series this year, including:
- Free leadline class
- Complimentary breakfast and lunch
- NCHJA rated Young Entry and Long Stirrup classes
- Ability to pre-register by email or dropping off form at the barn
- Equitation finals is at the end of the year with prizes to be awarded at that time
The prize list has changed from last year due to new requirements by the NCHJA so please make sure you note all changes that may affect when or where your class is held. Both Prize List and Registration can be found here.
Our next show is November 18 starting at 8:30am. Please text or email Megan if you are interested in showing.
All pre-register information is due in Triton’s inbox at Megan’s schooling barn by the Wednesday before the show OR you can download the registration form, fill it out and email the completed form to TritonStablesHorseShows@gmail.com The form links are listed below.
This year we are strongly encouraging riders to register early so that we can streamline the process on show day. Prepayment is NOT required to register early. If you have any questions at all about what class to register for or questions about prizes/registration, please use the email links above.
All riders showing in young entry, walk/trot and intermediate must be at the farm by 7am to groom, tack up and school their horses.
All riders showing in short stirrup, long stirrup, ponies, pre-child adult, adult/childrens and other classes must be at the barn by 7:30am and in the ring to school your horse by 8:30am.
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.
Announcing Triton Stables equitation finals!
This year Triton Stables is going to host its very own equitation finals 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 back 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!
Calendar of Triton Shows for 2017:
**Year End awards will be given at the November Show for the points accumulated at all the Triton Shows. Riders must compete in at least three shows to be eligible for awards.
