Crystal Clear Farm attends numerous schooling and rated shows each year all around Northern California, We go to horse shows based on the goals of our riding students. Before horse show season starts, Renee meets with each individual horse rider and the riders parents to discuss the riders goals and objectives so as to plan-out their individual show schedule for the year.
Horse Shows at Crystal Clear Farm, Petaluma
CCF also hosts schooling shows at home here in Petaluma. These home shows are a great first step into showing for new riders, and provide valuable showing practice for more experienced equestrians. Other horse barns in Sonoma and Napa are invited to our home shows so there are riders competing from other barns. This helps create a very realistic show for horse riders that are just beginning to show, or that are preparing for bigger shows.
Horse Show Classes offered range from walk/trot though 2’6. CCF shows take place on a Sunday, every other month, from April-October, with enticing year-end high point prizes for riders in each division that earn the most points over the course of the show season.
CCF riders participating in our home shows experience a full weekend of horses just as they would at a bigger show. A day before the show, riders have a lesson and then practice jumping over the decorated show course. After the lesson, it’s the riders responsibility to spend time helping bathe the horse/pony they are riding. As ponies dry from their bath, riders clean their tack so it shines on show day. The day of the show (Sunday), riders come early to double and triple check their horses/ponies to make sure they are spotless. As their classes near, riders tack up and head down to the ring to warm up. Then it’s show time!
Riders leave CCF shows feeling proud, accomplished, confident, and take home a few things to improve on for the next show. This helps create a driven and more focused rider during their riding lessons, always striving to hit their objectives on the way to their goal.
