We are also providing 3 different Performance Classes each at the Novice and Advanced levels. Each of these classes has a pattern sheet with full instructions for execution and videoing.
In Hand Ground Work
Equitation Over Fences
We will award a Champion Novice and Champion Advanced Performance Team combining results from all 3 Performance classes of each level.
Our judge will be open to judge all tests in any size arena. We will place and pin any tests with 2 or more tests. Tests are to be videoed from C, on a steady surface or tripod with a videographer helping zoom in and out as the rider travels away from the camera towards A and zoom out again as they travel back to C. Outdoor videos are best, consider your tack and clothing colors to make it easier for the judge to see your aids and horses movement. At the end of your tests please approach C,identify yourself, your horse, the test you just rode, if you have a whip or spurs, and what kind of bit you are riding in.
Don't have a perfect arena? No problem! Try using a handful of poles or other items to help mark our your arena in the field or in another arena. Can't quite measure it out? Don't worry. Make it close. No measuring tools? Use yourself. Each large stride is typically close to a meter. So 40 strides one way and 20 the other! No letters required if you don't have any but markers will help your judge. Coming in July Scissortail Hill will hopefully be open for schooling again so come video your test at our place or a friends!
Fuzzy Freestyle Virtual Show: (cont.)
Videoing: Specific video instructions are included with each pattern or each division description. Please use high resolution. Videos will be received via Drive, DropBox, Facebook, Youtube, personal email, or SD card.
Scoring: All scoring is done AFTER the 23rd. Judges may take a few days to finish judging. All competitors will receive score sheets. Ribbons will be distributed as needed after the competition.
Tack: All safe and effective tack will be acceptable. For Dressage tests tack must follow guidelines for the association. Contact us for help. Want to do the class bareback and brideless? Go for it! Just make sure to show your team at their best! No abusive riding, handling, blood, or wounds will be tolerated.
Attire: Casual but proper and safe riding and barn attire for the situation. Helmets are encouraged for all classes. Consider your clothing color to help the judge see your riding aids. (light pants help show your seat, white gloves your hands, black gloves on a black horse in a dark arena can hide beautiful contact) Costumes for the Fuzzy Freestyle are to be appropriate for the horse's confidence and ability and not hinder the performance.
