So we are going to be holding a Benefit Show for the rescue we're associated with at my barn. We're planning the show for either May 16 or May 23. But my barn owner has put me in charge of organizing the entire show! Apparently im her favorite and she thinks I can do it and pull off a wonderful show!! The only thing is I have never organized a show before. And I have in mind what I need to do, but it's all kind of just a jumble in my head! I would really love some ideas, advice, anything!!
Some Facts about the barn:
2 arenas - indoor and outdoor
Have a mix of english and western riders
Have a full jump course (but the jumps need to be painted)
Large heated lounge with viewing windows of the indoor
Second floor viewing room that needs to be completed
We have a judges stand next to the outdoor
Things I need to Do:
-Decide if we should do open english or english and western
-Find a judge or judges
-Get volunteers to help
-Finish the second floor viewing room
-Make a prize/class list
-make jump courses
-Set entry fees
-Figure out food
-Think of a good name for the show
-Set up a PA system
Anything else please feel free to let me know! Any help or advice from people would be greatly appreciated! This show is for a wonderful cause! And I would really like it to go well!
All proceeds from this show will be donated to a local equine rescue called Equine Rescue Resource. You can find information about the rescue at Equine Rescue Resource, Inc. Welcome! Thank you in advance for any advice!
