What an exciting day for students to show the skills they have learned through riding at HART. They did an awesome job competing!
We had ten students compete the day of the show. First the assisted riders showed, then the independent students, and finally the volunteers.
HART riders competed in four different classes, three of those were timed events including barrels, flag race, and plug. All consisted of a pattern the students had been memorizing and practicing in their lessons. The final class was a fun game of Egg and Spoon. The rider who rode with their egg on their spoon the longest won the class. Once the egg fell the students were out of the game.
After the students completed their classes, the volunteers took a turn at the competition. Five volunteers competed in the four classes the students did, along with three additional classes. The additional classes were the LT special and pole bending, which consisted of memorizing a pattern using barrels and poles. Then came Ride a Buck. A dollar was placed under the elbow of all the riders. The judge asked them to complete several maneuvers and the last one with the dollar under their arm won the money.
There were many smiles on student’s faces when they received their ribbons and trophies. This proved that the show was a huge success!
Thank you to all students for participating and the spectators who came to watch our students show off their riding skills.
