Donida Farm English Western Schooling Shows provide riders of all ages the chance to enjoy a real horse show experience in a relaxed and friendly setting. Classes include Halter & Showmanship, English, and Western classes. Compete in 4 of the 6 shows in the series and you’ll be eligible to win one of six Series High Point Championships!
Shows are held indoors in our large covered arena, and we even offer an indoor arena for warm up and schooling.
The show series runs from October through April. Pre-entry is the only way to get discounted rates on classes and stalls. You may not reserve a stall without a entry due to DF release. Pre-Entries always close on the Monday before the show at 5pm. No refunds for cancellation after the closing date unless you have a doctor or vet slip.
Next show: April 20, 2019 – Pre-entry is now closed.
Pre-Entries for the next English/Western Schooling Show will close on Wednesday April 17, 2019 at 12:00-noon. No further Pre-Entries will be accepted and no changes to entries may be made until the show office opens on Saturday at 7am. Get your entries in well ahead & note your “Stable With” preferences.
Pre-paid stalls will be available after 1pm on the Friday before the show. If you have ANY stabling issues/requests you MUST contact Denise – email@example.com. Riders are NOT allowed to make changes to the stabling ie: moving stall labels. We assign stabling for a variety or reasons and any/all changes MUST go through Denise.
