UPCOMING SPECIAL EVENTS:
2019-2020 Awards Banquet: September 12, Saturday night: 6:30-10:30pm
This years awards banquet will have an ACADEMY AWARDS theme. After what we have all gone through these past few months, this is a great excuse to get dressed up and celebrate with the club.
We have made some big changes to our awards celebration this season. It will be held at the beautiful Jupiter Country Club, just minutes from our show grounds, easily accessible from I-95 and turnpike.
Jupiter Country Club is providing us with not only a beautiful banquet room and dance floor, but also the use of their covered outide patio with fire pits overlooking their golf course.
We will start with a cocktail hour with pass around hors d'ouvers and cash bar, then onto a delicious buffet dinner with desserts. The awards ceremony will take place followed by our DJ inviting everyone to join in on the dance floor for the rest of the evening. For those who prefer things a bit quieter, the outside patio has plenty of seating to relax and enjoy the night and watch the beautiful Florida sunsets.
There will also be raffle tickets available to purchase for a variety of prizes that will be awarded to the winners through out the evening.
Each show (Pleasure, Dressage and Hunter) will also have their own "free" raffle prize that will be awarded during the evening. There is no need to enter this raffle, if you participated in the show, you are automatically in the raffle.
Keep an eye out for your email invitation... it will be sent out by June 15th to all members. Members are all invited to attend the banquet, and can bring friends and family as well. Your invitation will have room to list any guests. Please be sure to RSVP and include payment before July 15th. There will be no tickets sold at the event.

CLEAR ROUND EVENT
WHAT IS A CLEAR ROUND?
A Clear Round Show allows riders to practice their jumping skills without the stress of a timer or a judge. They basically compete against themselves. Basic jumper rules apply (see below) to complete a “clear round”.
Riders buy class tickets for $5 ea. They can enter as many times and as many divisions as they like, there is NO prerequisite for jump heights. Each ticket gives you one ride.
Jump courses will start at the lowest level (6-12”) and each rider with a ticket will ride the course. If they go “clear” they will get a ribbon on exit. If they do not complete a “clear round” they can use another ticket to try again. Order of “go” will be assigned only by ring steward.
Every 45 minutes (or sooner if there are no more entries for that jump height) the fences will raise 3”. Course height will max at 3’.
All riders must wear proper helmet & boots.
Basic jumper attire is required to enter the ring. Collared shirt (polo). No tank tops or tee shirts!
No-one will be allowed to school in the jump arena, there will be a jump available in the small schooling arena.
Faults: Any of the following result in a not clear round.
