Firefly Farm Schooling Show: Shows are open for anyone to watch, but are mainly a “horse recital with ribbons.” These are fun shows open only to current Firefly Farm lesson students.
Next Shows: TBD

Only riders who currently board their horses or take lessons at Firefly Farm are eligible to ride or take part in this show.
Each class is $15 to enter for regular classes. Payment must be made as early as possible to ensure entry into the show.
Horses available for each class are first-come, first served. If there are more entries than horses available, the class will be split—i.e., another class will be formed from the “spillover” entries, and those in the secondary class will be awarded ribbons as if this were an entirely separate class.
Show clothes are available from Sarah in all sizes from extremely tiny children up to adult. Show clothes cost $10 to rent from Sarah, and this, too, is first-come, first-served. Show clothes are more about photographic potential than they are about placing in classes.
All entrants MUST wear helmets and are not allowed to carry whips or wear spurs.
Judging is by Sarah, and ribbons are awarded for first through sixth place, with some honorable mentions. Questioning the judge’s decision is one of the most rude things you can do during a show. Don’t do it.
AWARDS Rosettes with the Firefly logo and name will be awarded to the 1-6 place winners in each class. They’re available to view in the tack room.
Please email or call Sarah. Only students who register and are current students are eligible to show.
