Lead Rein, Low Training and Modified Children’s Hunter Demonstration Classes

For the last two years, 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.

The Low Training Jumper Division came very close to qualifying this year, and the CHSA Finals Committee wants to encourage further participation in this class
for the future.  The CHSA Finals Committee will offer a Low Training Jumper Demonstration Class this year, if ten (10) of the Low Training Jumper rider and horses with any number of points in the Low Training Jumper Division as of August 8, 2010, send in their entry forms for the 2010 CHSA Finals.

This class will take place Saturday, August 28, in the Westbrook Hunt Club Main Hunter Ring and the fences will be at the starter level – not to exceed 2’6”.

Modified Children’s Hunter

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 2’6” Modified Children’s Hunter class for our Children’s Equitation riders.

The Modified Children’s Hunter Division will only be open to riders who qualify for the 2010 CHSA Finals Children’s Equitation Medal and who show in the CHSA Children’s Equitation Medal at the 2010 CHSA Finals.  The Modified Children’s Hunter Division will run on Saturday, August 28th and the Children’s Equitation Medal will run on Sunday, August 29th.
