The Property Shop Dressage &
Schooling Show Series
Last Fall a group of local horse enthusiasts met to discuss how to make Dressage & Combined Training Schoolings Shows more successful within the KC horse community. A list a gaps was brainstormed and solutions discussed. The group sought feedback from area clubs and organizations as well as trainers and horse owners.
It became clear that the KC horse community would welcome a schooling show series and the group drew up a plan. Funding was the main obstacle to launching a schooling show series. The Property Shop stepped forward to reallocate money from our marketing budget to take on the financial risk of launching the schooling show series.
So how did we do??
- 4 shows as promised
- Almost 300 dressage rides
- Over 130 jump rounds
- Overwhelmingly positive feedback
- After all costs - judges, facility rental, ribbons, championship coolers, prizes, jump manager, supplies, etc. - across the 4 shows we were just a little shy of breaking even. I consider that a success!
- Over 2 dozen participants have contacted me to encourage a 2021 Show Series! Stronly considering it!
