SUMMER EVENTING DERBY at DANCING HORSE HILL July 25, 2015
Opening Date: June 13, 2015 Closing Date: None. Post entries welcome.
Our eventing derby is a jumping competition featuring a course which includes a combination of stadium jumps and cross country jumps together in one course. The course is placed on gently rolling hillsides and includes a bank and a ditch but no water. We warmly welcome lower level eventing competitors including those new to eventing. Formal attire is optional. Jumps are small and inviting. Whether you or your horse are just starting or restarting or are simply seeking a low-key competition, we invite you to come enjoy the lovely countryside of western Wisconsin.

FORMAT: Each entry will entitle the horse and rider to try the course twice; once before lunch and once after lunch break. Schooling will be permitted during the lunch break. The two rides can be at the same level or can be at different levels. Riders will have assigned times for the first ride. After the first ride, riders should inform the show secretary of their choice of level for the second ride and a schedule will be drawn up and posted during the lunch break. The best score will be used for ribbon placement.
FEES: Each entry is $60 which provides for two rounds on course. Each horse and rider combination may submit a maximum of two entries (for a maximum of 4 rounds on course). Rounds need not be at the same level, but only the best score will count toward ribbon placement.
**Friends and Family special** A single entry can be split between two riders for a fee of $70. Each rider will ride the same horse at the level of their choosing and the score for each rider will count toward ribbon placement. So if you don't want to ride a second round but your sister/neighbor/mother/husband wants to ride, you can enter the Friends and Family option and both have a try. To use this option, each rider should submit an entry form but mark Friends and Family at the top with other rider's name.
ENTRIES: Current year EIA (Coggins) required on all horses; original in your possession and photocopy sent with entry. Riders who wish to enter with the same horse twice (for four rides) should submit two entries marked ENTRY 1 and ENTRY 2. A separate entry should be submitted for each different horse and rider combination. A horse may be entered more than once with different riders BUT no horse may be ridden more than four rounds in Beginner Novice or Novice Level nor six rounds at Introductory Level in the eventing derby.
