Does anyone here do hunter/jumper shows in Maryland?
Me and my younger sister have been doing schooling shows for the last few years, and we'd like to try doing a few rated. We're not sure if we want to join Baltimore or Harford country HSA... I've heard that Balt. Is way more competitive and political, but their shows are closer to where we're located. Have any of you heard anything about either associations? Also, if you compete in either association, who do you train with? Me and my sister also would like to switch trainers for a number of reasons, so we're looking for someone who'll coach at shows with one of those associtations.
Swan Lake Stables up near Gettysburg PA has nice rated shows- both hunters and jumpers. Its only about an hour away from where I am (Frederick, MD) so maybe look into that? I don't know anything about the Maryland shows though, sorry.
Thanks guys. I actually used to do tons of shows at SLS. We stopped going cause it's about an hour and a half away, at the 6am warm up is not so fun when you haev to drive that far. We just joined BHSA though, and they do a bunch of the rated shows there, so I'm sure we'll be back. Thanks :)
I was upset that we didn't do Harford county. They're supposed to be way more laid-back, but they started some new volunteering requirement and it's at shows we weren't planning to go to (the super crowded ones) You can opt out if you pay an extra hundred bucks per rider, but by the time we paid that it'd be cheaper to just to Balt.
