Lead Rein and Low Training Demonstration Classes

Last year, by popular request, the Finals Committee offered a new section to the show – a Lead Rein Demonstration Class, which is being offered again this year.

In keeping with the goal of our Finals to encourage and promote interest in the beginner and intermediate classes for members, this year the Finals Committee decided to offer a demonstration of another increasingly popular discipline on our circuit – Jumpers.

Therefore, there will be a Jumper Demonstration Class for the starter level jumper division in the CHSA organization.  The top ten point getters in the Low Training Jumper section are being invited to participate in a Jumper Demonstration class on Monday August 24.  This class will take place in the Westbrook Hunt Club Grand Prix arena and the fences will be at the starter level – not to exceed 3’0”.   This will be an exciting opportunity for spectators and other exhibitors to watch the total coordination of horse and rider as they try to not only clear the fences on a very complicated, serpentine-like course, but also beat the clock.

Our hope is this demonstration class will generate excitement so that next year Low Training Jumpers will return as a Qualified Division!
