Showing with Aering Green

Horse shows can be very fun and a wonderful team building experience. It is an opportunity for a rider to build confidence, demonstrate what they have learned, and display good sportsmanship. It is also another way to bond with your horse and other riders or individuals within the equine community.

Aering Green offers a full show schedule from April to October including local schooling shows at Larkin Hill and Stockade Polo and Saddle Club, as well as recognized USEF/USDF/USEA shows at ENYDCTA Dressage Days, Dressage at Stockade, Old Chatham Horse Trials, and HITS as well as the American Eventing Championships (AEC’s).

We look forward to a wonderful show season and assisting you in setting and achieving your equestrian goals. As always, if you have questions about what is expected, please ask in advance.

Laura recommends you become a member of both the United State Dressage Federation and the Eastern New York Dressage and Combined Training Association (ENYDCTA).

Both organizations provide discounts when registering for events, valuable information, newsletters and information regarding shows and clinics. You can join by going to their websites.

If you are interested in trying to qualify for year-end awards there are several things you must do in addition to being a member of ENYDCTA. Each horse must be registered once under ENYDCTA rules. Please contact Laura for further information.

Guidelines for Successful Showing

Remember, you want to put your best foot forward when going to a show. This means you and your horse present to the best of your abilities. It is essential to take pride in all the work you have done to the point of showing and remember, it is about trying to do your best and not about winning ribbons or qualifying for awards. Lastly, just have fun!

To ensure a safe and enjoyable event for horse and rider, Laura has created a set of guidelines for successful showing. You can download these guidelines as Microsoft Word document.
