C. Schooling Challenge Demos, Mock Judging and Practice on Saturday, November 3rd

For those who can’t get into a Mountain Trail coaching clinic or semi-private lesson, we have one final option for you before the Schooling Challenge on Sunday, November 4th. On Saturday, November 3rd riders will have an opportunity to learn Mountain Trail competition essentials, watch demonstrations, receive judge’s critics through mock judging, and spend time in the arena and the equestrian trail park practicing. Riders and auditors both welcome. While this day’s experience does help you and your family become familiar with the fun and fast-growing Mountain Trail discipline and does give you the opportunity to complete in the Play Day Schooling Challenge, it does not take the place of an Introduction to Mountrail Clinic, and does not give you the ability to book private access to the Trail Park. You can attend a public clinic or book semi-private lessons to complete the Introduction to Mountain Trail curriculum.
