The Bridges Equestrian Show Team participates in the OCHSA County Shows at Sycamore Trails. These shows are a fantastic way to show off your skills in the show ring and have divisions for almost every level of rider.
If you are riding a BRIDGES HORSE these amounts include horse rental, coaching, and show prep*. This fee must be paid prior to two weeks before the show. Registrations made within two weeks of the show will incur a $50 late registration fee.
Per Day: Not Monthly Member: $350
Per Day: Monthly Member: $275
Per Day: Leased Bridges Horse: $200
Per Day: Owned or privately leased horse: $150
Show entry fees of $150 – $250 per day are separate, paid directly to the show office. If you forget to pay and we have to pay for you, there will be a $25 plus 10% service charge to cover the service fees, and we will charge your card on file.
Open division riders are responsible for cleaning their own tack. BRIDGES will clean your tack for an additional $25, but we need to know prior to the Thursday before the show.
Reservations for the show will be taken up until 2 weeks prior to the show, with first come first served for horse reservations. The Bridges fee must be paid up front as a deposit on the show. This will also insure you preferential assignment of the horse for THE ONE WEEK PRIOR to the show for practice lessons.
There will be a $50 late fee for registrations made within 2 weeks of the show.
Up till 15 days before the show date: Credit to your BRIDGES Account.
Within 15 days of the show: No refunds or credits.
