We are also looking for sponsors for the open classes. Sponsorships are $25.00 per class; if you wish, please indicate the level or division you wish to sponsor and Gaye will do her best to match your contribution up with the class you desire.
More about the show:
Each August riders from all over the Pacific Northwest congregate in Oregon for the annual Junior Young Rider Team Championships. This show not only offers competition through dressage tests, bur riders also participate in stable management contests, decorating competitions, a written exam and a “jog” as they do at larger international competitions. The Junior/Young Rider Team Championship Show has added open classes on Friday and Saturday for adults. Because the show is being held at the DevonWood Equestrian Centre, these newly added open classes are a great opportunity to have a warm up before the ODS Championship Show.
