Apr 9 - PVDA Dressage Schooling Show @ Schooley Mill
Apr 16 - Benefit Dressage Schooling Show @ Morven Park
May 8 - Southern MD Horse Association Show @ PG Eq. Center
May 29 - Southern MD Horse Association Show @ PG Eq. Center
June 5 - PVDA Schooling Show @ Schooley Mill
June 18-19 - USDF Dressage at the Meadow
June 25-26 - USDF PVDA Ride for Life
July 9 - Future Event Horse @ Loch Moy
July 16 - Future Event Horse @ Loch Moy
July 30 - USDF VADA/Nova Breed Show I @ Morven Park

Whew! What a schedule! Of course, it's subject to change. Hopefully a few more shows will be added as the associations are scheduled. A few more dressage schooling shows for Beau, the Oldenburg Horse Show with Cav and hopefully another Future Event Horse or 2 for her, plus FEH championships.

It'll be busy, but I'm soooo looking forward to it!

Not really planned, but I definately want to go to more ranch rodeos this year. Also, I might go to a showmanship show this year (my goal is to compete in a reining class)

I have a bunch "planned" it all comes down to money though. So heres what I have. Regena is going to all of them, Ben will go to at least a couple and Watson might get to go to Beaumont. If he's lucky.

May Long Weekend - Thompson Country x-Country Clinic
May 27-29 - Amberlea Meadows Dressage Show
May 29-30 - Alhambra Victory Tack Spring Event
June 5-6 - Beaumont Horse Trials
June 26-27 - Cochrane Horse Trials
July 9-11 - Thompson Country Horse Trials
July 29-31 - Amberlea Summer Dressage Festival
August 3-7 - Jump with Hope for Kids with Cancer
Sept 4-5 - South Peace Horse Trials
Sept 18-19 - Alhambra Southside Dodge Fall Challenge{Championships}
Sept 30-Oct 2 - Amberlea Harvest Horse Show

These are all the events and jumper shows I have found that I will try my hardest to go to. There are also a couple 1 day Derbies and other Jumper shows I have yet to find dates of.

yep, I've had Reeco's first show season planned out since I first got him. I'm just waiting for confirmation of some dates for some of the later shows in septemer etc before it is finalised.

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

I used to plan my show season, but then something usually would come up to cause the planned event to not happen. I just go with the flow now, I try not to set myself up for dissapointment.

My "plan" is to do as many HT's this 2011 as I can. But we'll see. Nelson is turning 22, and he has arhtritus in his hind right hock, and it all depends on what he says on the matter.

The first HT of the 2011 season for Area 8, is the May 2nd Canter Benefit - it's a possibility, but like I said, we'll see.
