H & G Horse Quarters's lesson program is designed to build the necessary skills and confidence a rider needs to succeed in the show ring. We offer many opportunities for riders to compete and excel, whether at our won H & G Show Series, local rated shows, or USEF rated shows. We will help you decide which shows you, or your child, is ready to compete in and progress through the levels. If you do not own your own horse, H & G can provide you with a show mount to meet your goals and to further excel in the ring.
Schooling shows offer a great opportunity for H & G students who want to get a bit of the showing bug! This friendly atmosphere is a very positive environment for beginner show riders to learn the ropes of showing that is very cost effective. These shows are typically one-day shows and usually last all day long. At these shows, you can progress from walk/trot to 2'9" jumping classes! These shows also enable more experienced riders the ability to gain more confidence and time in the show ring. These shows are a great way to start your showing career, or continue your progress through the levels of showing!
We compete mainly in AHJA local rated shows and some GHJA local rated shows. Most of these shows require some traveling in the state of Alabama,or Georgia, for participation, except those held at H & G. Local shows are the next step up from schooling shows and require a little more commitment and time from the rider. These shows tend to be more expensive than schooling shows, because of traveling costs and hotels, but are still very reasonable. If you are interested in participating in these shows, it is highly encouraged to lease, or purchase a horse/pony to be more competitive in the show ring.
This type of showing is for the most committed rider, who is willing to compete against some of the best rider/horse combinations in the nation. Competition is extremely tough and thse shows can be very expensive. At this level of showing, the student needs to own his, or her, own show mount. This is the type of showing that will build a student's resume for any NCAA equestrian athletic team. There are a few shows held at H & G that are USEF rated, but you will mostly have to travel across the Southeast to compete in these types of shows.
