Online Horse Shows

Since all horse shows are cancelled, our local club is holding an online show next month.
I know nothing about online horse shows. How do they work, have you participated in one, anything else that you would like to tell me about them, I would appreciate it. Thanks!

I am not here to promote anythingNo, that's not true, I am here to promote everything equestrian and everyone enjoying horses!

I have not participated in any, but I know people who have. From what I've gathered from what they say & the ones I've looked at, you enter a specific class and then you have a certain amount of time to take a video of what ever that class requires. So in rail classes, they will specify the order of gaits and what specific gaits at what direction are needed. For pattern classes, they will give you the pattern and you will have to perform that pattern. As with all horse shows, you must follow the rules for tack requirements, clothing requirements, etc. After all the entries are in, the Judges will review the videos and pick a winner.

If you enter, please let us know what classes you entered & how you did! I want to try one, but have not had time to do it yet ...

I am part of "The Virtual Horse Show" group on FB though, I've yet to enroll myself in any of the shows. From what I've seen however, you pay your show fee via Paypal or Venmo and then a pattern will be posted on the group with specific instructions (even including where to place the camera).

Riders will have a set number of days to video and upload their pattern and then you post it to the group.

I did a liberty challenge online last week and had a lot of fun. I didn't win but I also didn't know what I was doing and didn't have a fenced in area to work with him but I did have a lot of fun.

I'm looking at the east coast buckskin show right now. The deadline for entry is tomorrow so I was thinking about doing 2 classes. The walk trot ranch riding and the walk trot horsemanship. (Baby horse is green and I haven't even tried to neck reign him - plus my ring is being rebuilt).

I am going to practice the patterns today and have my son or my husband video tape them tomorrow. I am wondering if it will be less stressful doing it at home? I am feeling ... dumb? about it.

I did one. I just entered the open walk trot ranch riding class. i haven't started neck reining Cloud yet but since he's six I slapped a bridle on him and did it so you could kind of see me pulling him around at one point. We placed 8th. We weren't last but we were at the bottom. The other issue I had was my ring wasn't quite ready for use - it's still being leveled and sized so the pattern was a little squished. I was the only one in the class (from what I could tell) that was not at a boarding or training facility. They were all in nice rings but it was still fun. The class was $5.

For $5 you can't beat the fun factor! And good for you for doing it anyway, even though you didn't really have the facilities or a horse trained in the curb ... you still didn't place last! I think they take into consideration people's riding situations, so I wouldn't worry too much about that. Just have fun - which it seems like you did!

I am doing a liberty challenge now. You review the steps (videos) and then you go and work them, submit your own video, and get your critique. You do it every day for a week. The winner gets a year subscription to the leadership club. I won't win but it's been really good for me. I have never been great with the ground stuff and this has really built my confidence. Plus - it's kind of fun.
