    Regulations

    • All entry fees must be paid in full to the CC PONY DRESSAGE account on the main site for your entry to be processed.

    • The system does not accept punctuation in payments at this time. If you put, for example, $50.00 when you send payment, you will be sending $5,000! Just type in $50 with no decimal places. Please pay once for your entire entry, not per horse!

    • Payments must be made by the same member who entered the horse.

    • Horses may not be cross-entered in different levels at the same show.

    • Riders may compete up to two horses in each class.

    • Horses must be registered with the appropriate discipline to be eligible to compete.

    • If there are more than 14 participants in one class, it will be split. Classes with fewer than 10 participants will have phantom horses added to meet the minimum requirement.

    • Go to the PONY DRESSAGE Leaderboard to check your horse's current level. Horses may enter below their level but those entered above will be disqualified and entry fee confiscated.

    • Error change requests/discipline declarations are not guaranteed to be completed by end of show, especially those submitted on its final day.

    • Undeclared horses will be disqualified and entry fee confiscated.

    Hollow Meadow's Dressage Team; from left to right we have Henry Harrington and MM Aurora, they got a 7th place in the main division, Jamie Reyes and Stag Hill's Iris, they got 5th in the pony division, and Marie Stevens and FF Hummingbird, getting 2nd place in the pony division.

    This show had been an emotional one for the small team. All of them had been entered in the second level, with Marie, Jamie and their ponies getting grouped with other ponies, and Henry and Aurora getting put up against other horses, including some strongly pedigreed Warmbloods. The three of them came home with strongly varying results.

    Marie and Hummingbird managed to get Second place, thoroughly impressing us with how collected the two of them were, both physically but also mentally. They did get to practice pretty much every day leading up to the show, so that did help. Marie’s mom had somehow managed to get a giant bouquet of flowers for her daughter the second the results were announced, I guess there are perks to being rich. Hummingbird enjoyed the humble tack-shop treats her trainer gave her, though she wasn’t turning her nose up to the perfectly red apple Marie had offered her either.

    Jamie and Iris came home with a solid Fifth place and I’m very proud of her. She was very nervous arriving at this show, it was by far the biggest she had ever been to and due to the weather, they weren’t able to get in quite as many weekly lessons. Iris was feeling a little groggy during the entire show, she had been happily bundled up with a blanket in her stall for the week and I guess she just wasn’t fully awake yet. She pretty much just stayed awake long enough to complete their test before falling back to sleep as you can see.

    Henry unfortunately suffered the worst luck at the show. As we said, he and Aurora were up against some stiff competition. Because of this he had wound himself into anxiety leading up to his test, causing him to lose focus on his test. Aurora was the angel she always is, and she did her best to compensate, but unfortunately, she didn’t know the exact test. You can see he’s pretty upset still in this picture, he was actually pretty mopey for the entire week following, but luckily, as also seen here, Aurora continued to be cheery enough for the both of them and eventually she cheered him up too.
