TRAINING FOR THE SHOW RING

“Winning is fearlessly and consistently pursuing excellence in every ride.”

— Tonya Johnston

As students learn, grow and advance, many develop an interest in riding in the show ring. In the ring, students demonstrate their proficiency of hunter seat equitation at local, regional or national “A” level shows, in the Outreach ring at shows and Outreach shows.

You will be trained in Hunter class, where the focus is on how well you showcase the horse’s movement, style, and manners. Also included is Jumper class training, concentrating on the horse’s athletic abilities. Finally, you will be ready for Equitation class training, which focuses on the rider’s form and technique.

The best place to show off the relationship cultivated between horse and rider is in the show ring. When you train with Segebade Equestrian, you will become well-versed in all stages of horse showmanship. You will learn class rules, preparing your horse, proper equine nutrition, grooming, tack, and styles of equipment.

In addition to the skills required to train your horse, you will also receive training on how to properly exhibit. Showing a horse requires precision, discipline, concentration and focus – all while “selling it”. You will learn to have complete command over your horse, all while making it look effortless.
