Showing

 

At Reverie Equestrian, showing is a fun way to showcase what you have worked so hard on at home. Whether you have been working to perfect your position for the equitation on the flat classes, making your turns tighter for the jump off, executing correct lateral work for the upper level equitation classes, getting around the outside twice in the crossrails, remembering your courses or throwing down the perfect hunter course, there is a place in the saddle for you at shows with us.  We try to make shows an educational experience for both students and horses alike.  When you show, it really is just another lesson, but with a judge's score and ribbons attached to it.  We make individual goals for both horse and rider at every show and strive to achieve them.  Shows are a great way to figure out what you need to continue working on at home to continue to improve to the best of your ability.  They also help you with real world applications like time management, professional appearance, sportsmanship, organization, dedication, tackling fears and anxiety and responsibility.  Most importantly though, we show to HAVE FUN even with the early mornings and late nights.  We are a Show Barn Family and those relationships grow at horse shows as we care for our horses, reach our goals, have barn dinners and cheer our family on!

We show on the National USEF/USHJA circuit as well as the local NTHJC circuit.  We believe everyone should have the opportunity to show.  What's the difference between the two and what can you expect?

What sets Reverie apart from other show stables is that we give you the ability to choose how involved you want to be at the horse shows and what kind of horse show lifestyle you want.  We allow you to choose your care level you want provided because we encourage a full education on horse showing which includes horsemanship.  We believe it is important that you learn everything about horses from the ground up, so we apply this to horse shows as well.  We offer full daycare, partial daycare and self care at horse shows.  What does this mean?  It means if you want the horse show lifestyle of having a groom take care of your horse from feeding to mucking stalls to tacking, untacking, unbraiding and bathing, we got you covered; we will provide all the luxuries to you at the full daycare cost.  If you want to do your own tacking and grooming, but don't really want the early mornings cleaning stalls, we have you covered there too with the partial daycare.  And if you are the barn rat type who wants to be there from dawn to dusk and do everything on your own and learn a lot along the way; we got you.  Self care is a free education to being the best horseman you can be: you will help feed, clean your stall at least two times a day, tack, untack, unbraid, groom, bathe and wrap and unwrap your horse while helping the barn aisle and tack stalls stay organized and clean. Heck, we will even teach you to braid if you want.  We think that everyone should have a chance to show, so if you need to make some cost cuts to afford to show, this is your opportunity to do just that.

What do we ask in return for allowing you to choose?  For you to be committed to the tasks you're responsible for, always put your horse care first, keep our show stable looking professional and clean just as a groom would, manage your time efficiently, enjoy building a relationship with your horse and barn family and of course, have some fun in-between!
