Colorado Safari Properties, LLC Presents
The (still in) Quarantine Classic, a Virtual Horse Show
Benefiting The Rocky Mountain Horse Rescue
Sponsored by Colorado Tack and Supply, Co.
In the wake of the 2020 Global Pandemic, opportunities to attend horse shows in Colorado have been limited. With that in mind, the still unknown showing opportunities for 2021, and the genuine donation challenges 5013(c) charities are experiencing, The (still in) Quarantine Classic was born. So, it’s time to shine your boots, pull the show coat out of the closet, and polish your presentation, as entries close on February 1, 2021.
While the name is silly, the showing and judging are serious. We are pleased to announce the hunter judge, Kris Nixon, an “R” judge and trainer, who comes to the show with prior virtual judging experience. Kris is also the operator of Rocky Mountain Horse Rescue. The dressage judge is Sue Martin, an experienced Grand Prix competitor, having qualified and competed 3 times at the National Dressage Championships and trained many horses successfully through the FEI levels. Both hunter and dressage riders will receive the judge’s personal notes, insightful comments, and valuable feedback on every class entry.
The virtual show platform is as easy as a smart phone video and a Facebook post! Show placings will be announced on the show’s Facebook page, while judge’s notes, comments, and feedback will be managed privately and emailed to riders directly.
There will be 6 levels of hunter divisions for judging, from pile-of-poles to 2’9″. Hunter courses will be designed for ease of setup and ring size limitations and will be published on January 15, 2021. Dressage riders can submit test 3 of any level, and you can expect some fun classes as well!
A special thank you to Colorado Tack and Supply, Co. for the generous prize donations and constant support of our horse community.
Dressage Class Status: REGISTRATION OPEN
