HorseShow.com's Youth Festivals have been wildly popular with young equestrians across the country, and now the Fall edition is back! Want to know what the judge is really thinking? Ever wonder why another rider placed above you at the last show? HorseShow.com is here to help you learn new skills to claim that blue ribbon! And it's FREE! Simply submit a video of one of your practice rides, and our expert judge will review your performance and explain what you can do to improve. At the conclusion of the online show, you'll be eligible to win valuable prizes. Plus, get your friends to submit their video rides too and earn money for your youth club or group!
The HorseShow.com Fall Youth Festival offers English and Western Pleasure and Equitation classes as well as a special Showmanship class, and are open to horses and ponies with riders of all ages. To enter, simply make a video of your performance at your home training facility and upload the video to the class you want to enter. All videos will be reviewed and every rider/handler will receive a voiceover commentary from nationally acclaimed USEF "R" Judge, Bill Hughes, providing valuable coaching about how you can improve your performance for future shows. After the conclusion of the show on November 7, our judge will once again review all entries to determine the overall class winners, with prizes including ribbons and gift certificates from Dover Saddlery. As an added bonus from HorseShow.com, any youth club or group which submits videos from at last five (5) different members will receive a $150 donation to use for future club or group equestrian activities, such as clinics or seminars.
Sally Watanabe and her barn mates in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA love entering the bi-annual Youth Festivals. "Horseshow.com is such a great and unique experience because you get to have the excitement of being in a horse show, all from your own barn," said Sally. "In most ways, it's even better than being at a horse show, especially because your video gets feedback by a professional judge, which most judges at a live horse show won't do!"
Remember, these Youth Festivals are available free of charge to provide an easy and affordable way for young equestrians to learn how they can improve their performances. Riders can choose to share the feedback they receive with other club or group members, so everyone can learn from the experience.
