A Great Start to the Show Season

JmpRing_-_Apr2013April 30, 2013

Quail Run and URBAN EQUINE EVENTS kicked off their first set of shows for the 2013 season.

Quail Run's Omaha Jumper Preview kickstarted the action at the Quail Run Horse Centre.  This 3 day, Jumpers only show was held April 5-7, 2013.  Participants from the area came out and enjoyed the nice Spring weather, the excellent looking show ring, and the fun courses designed by James Girolamo of Orange County, CA. 

There was a large range of classes available including low level jumpers all the way up through a TomAstro_-_Apr2013$1200 1.35m Jumper Classic.  The schedule also included several "Opportunity Classes" designed for the non-experienced competitor to get a taste of an "A" rated competition. 

Scoring all the action was Vick Kaneps of Parker, CO and representing the USEF, Robyn Eden of Omaha, NE acted as the show steward. 

Quail Run and UEE are very excited about the future of this Jumper Preview show as it is an excellent opportunity to shake the rust off the summer show season, but probably most importantly it is an excellent tune up opportunity for those that are wishing to compete in THE INTERNATIONAL OMAHA show that is held in downtown Omaha at the CenturyLink Center.

Quail Run's Indoor Hunter Days followed just 12 days later.  This Hunters only show was held on April 19-21, 2013.  The show was supposed to begin on Thursday April 18, however, winter decided to come back to Nebraska and visit for a few days which prompted management to push back the start of the show by one day.  This proved to be an excellent decision.  Although the weather was quite cold, there were no major elemental obstacles to overcome during the actual competition. 

HntLine_-_Apr2013Action at the Hunter show included a combined 1st Year Green and High Performance division, complete Junior Hunter and Amateur/Owner Hunter divisions, and a Pony Hunter division.  We even scrounged up enough entries to run the ASPCA MACLAY and USEF Hunt Seat Medal classes!

Judging for the week was handled by Sarah Good of Belton, MO, and our official steward was Loretta Waltner of Sioux Falls, SD.  A special thanks to Dr. Kim Houlding for acting as our show veternarian on short notice!

It seemed that everyone had a good time riding around flowing hunter courses designed by Jim Urban of Elkhorn, NE inside our large indoor ring, which looked spectacular for the show.

ChloePrince_-_Apr2013Both April shows ran very smoothly and gets us excited about hosting the next show which will take place Memorial Day weekend!
