·         We are utilizing the Fox Village Dressage Confirmation Email system. If you have not already viewed it, this is a good time to get familiar with it.

BACK FOR 2024: Thoroughbred Incentive Program (TIP) High Score Ribbon

Preliminary Schedule by Ring & Preliminary Rider’s Schedule by name. There may a changes from the preliminary version that may have been previously posted on the website due to scratches so please double check on Friday before the show. Fox Village will always be the most up to date version.

We are using Fox Village to send out Confirmations of your entry, posting ride times & Class Schedules. You may access the show information at: https://www.foxvillage.com

Fox Village will also report updated scores and class placements once a class is finished. Please keep in mind that if you view your scores on Fox Village during the show, the scores can change once we double check results, and nothing is final until a class is placed. Your score may be in but your tests will not be available until the class is closed/placed. There will be announcements when classes have been placed and tests/ribbons are ready to be picked up on the deck of the indoor arena.

With our updated Fox Village software, we have been able to increase the size of our show. Please keep in mind that scheduling multiple rings can create a challenge and we’ve done the best we can to keep rides in order whenever possible. As usual, if you are riding in two different levels, your rides may not be in order of difficulty due to the way we need to split them between the courts. Also, because of some very large classes, we have split some.

VACCINE RECORDS: Since May of 2022 we have been requiring Proof of Vaccination for every event at the Farm. ALL Proof of Vacines will need to be submitted to enter 2024 shows, even if you have previously submitted a Proof of Vaccination in 2023 that might still have an expiration date in the future: DO NOT ENTER THE SHOW GROUNDS IF YOU HAVE NOT PROVIDED PROOF OF VACCINE.
