The Marlborough Horse Trials
Join us for two Spring Jumper Derbies March 16th and April 6th! Water Schooling too.
Come jump into Spring with us!
Want to get out in early spring just to get your feet wet? No problem, we have you covered. Returning for our 8th year, we are offering four levels of Derby competition. We will pin winners through 3rd place in each od two classes of four divisions: 18"-2', 2'-2'3", 2'3"-2'7" and 2'9"-3'. Courses for the April Derby will be different from the March Derby. All courses will be ridden over a combination of cross-country and stadium jumps. Banks are optional for the first three levels and mandatory for the 2'9"-3' division. For the Elementary division the first round will be judged only on clear rounds (not times) and the second round will be judged on equitation. For the remaining three divisions, the first round will be judged on optimum time and the second round on equitation.
Riders can choose to ride judged or unjudged and can also ride as pairs just for fun or to help a green horse or rider gain confidence in a fun and inviting atmosphere. It's your choice! Drinks and delicious hot food will be available for sale all day. Bring your friends and enjoy a day at the park!
Need to get your horse's feet wet? We've got you covered there too! We are offering an opportunity to school our water obstacle for $15 per horse and rider combination. Just pay the secretary, get a pinnie and off you go! What could be a better prep for the upcoming show season?
Forms are available below. Fill them out before you come to speed through registration. Forms wil also be available at the event.
