    Rough Schedule of Events 

    Tuesday, July 18, 2017

    Nationally known Trainer and Instructor, Jack Towell will teach four group sessions beginning at 9:00 am with a break for lunch. The lessons will be geared toward flat and fences work to prepare for the show ring. Box lunches will be served on the porch of the Winner’s Ring for pre-registered participants and auditors. Fun and educational evening activities will follow as well as a Pizza and Ice Cream Party generously sponsored by Memory’s Hill Stables.

     Wednesday, July 19, 2017

    In the same groupings as on Tuesday, Jack Towell will become your “horse show coach” as he warms you up and prepares you for your two rounds “at the show”.  USEF Rated Judge and also well-known Instructor, Glenn Moody, will judge your rounds giving you a numeric score and explain the reasoning for your score from the judge’s perspective. It will be your job to work with your “coach”, Jack, to improve your second round.  Box lunches will again be served at the Winner’s Ring porch.

    As some of you may know, Bucky Reynolds has been hospitalized following complications from surgery and will not be with us.  We wish him all the best!

     If you have questions, please feel free to contact either of us and we look forward to a wonderful learning experience.

  • To eliminate confusion and misunderstandings, please note that show secretaries do not have SWVHJA membership information. They will not be able to provide any information regarding membership and/or horse recording status. If there are any questions as to membership status, it is recommended that any applicable forms be submitted either prior to or at a show. If dues have already been paid for the current year, the check will be returned. Please feel free to contact the SWVHJA office at any  time with membership questions.

  • If you feed Southern States feed, please save the certificates (bar code) off the bag and turn in to Molly Moore, who announces at many local shows.  Southern States contributes money to the Association for use in purchasing awards for each coupon submitted.
