The Big Purple Barn at Hidden Haven Farm is pleased to field a show team for students as a supplement our lesson program. We strive to choose a variety of shows that are affordable and offer a wide variety of classes. We have team members who compete in everything from Lead Line to Trail and from Pleasure to Jumpers. We stress the importance of sportsmanship and team work in our show team program and encourage all interested students to attend a show with us to see what it is all about. We also teach our team members to do important outreach and education as they interact with the public at various events.
Members of the team are expected to take regular lessons and must purchase thier own show attire (a detailed list of required attire is provided each season). We do have some items available to borrow in our "Rider's Closet" and are happy to lend jackets and breeches when we can. We provide the horses, bathing supplies, tack and cleaning supplies as well as hauling and coaching!
Team members can also expect to take part in additional team practices which cover a variety of topics such a show prep, tack care and all about the individual classes at shows. Team members work together to prepare horses and ponies for competitions and support one another throughout the show day!
If you are interested in our show team, please contact us for more information!
