Schooling Show Times & Rules

By |2020-06-06T05:24:36-04:00June 6th, 2020|News & Events|

Hi everyone! Below are preliminary ride times for our show on Sunday, June 14. If you’ll be showing with us, PLEASE READ THE REST OF THIS and don’t just skip ahead to ride times, because a) this is our first show so bear with us, and b) um, coronavirus.

SO.

1. Hey, the coronavirus is still a thing. As mentioned in the show program, you’ll be required to rock a mask unless you’re mounted. Please also social distance, park your trailers in such a way that you’re not all up in any fellow competitor’s business, and don’t come to the show if you’re not feeling well or if you’ve been exposed to someone sick. Please temp yourself before you come to the show; if it’s high, stay home. If we catch anyone behaving in an unsafe manner, I’ll throw you off my farm so fast your head will spin, AND keep your money. Don’t be dumb.

2. DO NOT USE YOUR GPS to come to the farm. I can basically guarantee that you’ll regret it. Use the directions here: http://spriesersporthorse.com/contact-us/directions/. There will be some signage as well, but cell phone reception is absolute garbage for several miles around the farm, so don’t count on being able to call these directions up from your phone.

3. An aerial view of the farm is available via email, with parking and water spigots circled. There will also be a community manure bucket, and while we’re going to do our best to regularly clean both the bucket/fork and the spigots, plan accordingly before touching community stuff.

4. As there’s no rider numbers, and all you little champions have given me complete entries (thank you!), just pop on your ponies and get riding; no need to check in anywhere. We did have a change of plan: the show ring is now our OUTDOOR, and the warmup is the INDOOR. Everything will be well labelled.

5. Do know that there are a few grates across the driveways that some horses find objectionable. Plan accordingly. If you think your horse might be a doofus, or you’d just like to have some extra time to see the facilities, remember we’re offering $10 off lessons the week of the show. You can sign up at Time Center.

6. The plan is still coming together, but I’m 99% sure we’re going to go totally contact free and photograph and email your tests to you, rather than hand back paper sheets. If that really cramps your style, shoot me an email and we can work something else out.

7. There are NO BATHROOMS available to folks trailering in. There is NO FOOD SERVICE. The water from the spigots in the parking area is very drinkable, so either bring your own bottle or bring your own water outright. There is also NO ADMITTANCE to the stables.

8. Please don’t trash our parking field. We appreciate it.

9. Heather Richards will be at the show to photograph rides. Please sign up in advance by sending an email to hmrichards100@gmail.com. Photos will be posted online after the show and will be available for download.

Price for photographs will be $40 for all photos taken of you and your horse for the day. Payment should be made through PayPal. Half of all proceeds will be donated to the Culpeper Food Closet to help the local community.

Keep Learning, Safely! Virtual Cocktail Party Series

By |2020-04-26T10:29:17-04:00April 26th, 2020|News & Events|

If you don’t follow Lauren Sprieser on Facebook, you might have missed the Virtual Cocktail Party series. Sponsored by the Sprieser Sporthorse Elite Club, Lauren is hosting three FREE educational “parties” via Zoom, in these times of social distancing, to keep learning and keep having fun while we’re safe at home.

We’ve had some amazing guests, and will continue to do so for weeks to come. All meetings are at 7p EST (4p PST). Here’s the complete schedule of events:

Monday, April 27: Maddie of The Blonde & The Bay, a fabulous blogger and Instagram star. We’re talking about life on the internet, and the pluses and perils of social media.
Wednesday, April 29: Beth Hall of Woodwind Studios & MusiKur Dressage Freestyles, a professional dressage freestyle composer. Beth has done freestyles for myself and my students through the international levels, and we’ll chat choreography, the music process, and why you’re not allowed to do a freestyle to music from The Pirates Of The Caribbean or Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimmaron anymore. (Spoiler alert: because you’ll be the nine millionth person to do so.)
Friday, May 1: Lauren Chumley is back to talk about working students: how to be a good one, how to get a great job, when to run screaming from the hills, and how spending time as a working student is crucial before you venture out as a trainer on your own.
Monday, May 4: Dr. Cricket Russillo, USA Team Vet for Dressage. We’ll be talking about the value of being proactive instead of reactive in equine sports medicine, and what a good preventative performance exam and treatment plan looks like.
Wednesday, May 6: Ange Bean, Grand Prix dressage trainer, about riding the non-warmblood horse and bringing them up the levels of dressage sport. We’ve got Morgans! We’ve got Fresians! We’ve got combinations of the two! Come learn about how Ange’s made multiple FEI horses with nary a warmblood to be found in their pedigrees.
Friday, May 8: a high performance roundtable we’re calling “What I’m Doing On My Summer Vacation!” For our country’s top dressage and paradressage stars, the journey to the next Olympic Games just got weirder… and longer. I’ll be joined by Rebecca Hart, Katherine Bateson-Chandler, Olivia Lagoy-Weltz and more, to talk about their plans for the summer, how they’re staying motivated, and what comes next in these uncertain times.

PAST PARTIES, recorded and available for your listening pleasure, to members of the Sprieser Sporthorse Elite Club:
– Heather Richards, FEI Amateur with horses at home
– Jen Verharen, professional coach, on making fear a superpower
– Dr. Chad Davis DVM, on complementary medicine for horses
