MegFord Schooling Show


2014/12/02






The 2014 west Tennessee schooling show season finished on Halloween weekend (Oct. 31-Nov. 1) in Germantown, Tennessee at the Germantown Charity Horse Show Arena with the final MegFord Schooling Show.  Friday afternoon’s strong, frigid winds made it a little tough to “warm up,” but “competitors persevered through the Siberian schooling and enjoyed the crispness of the air,” said Ann Ford Upshaw. “It was a good end of the year show.”

Young competitors got to Trick-or-Treat through the barn area on Friday night, as all the participating stables brought candy and goodies to share. Riders got to dress themselves and their horses in scary holiday themes for the Costume Class, but horses weren’t required to participate. Entry fees from the class went to benefit the Meadow Woods Dog Rescue. There were also jumper classes under the lights on Friday night. And, of course, the Rusty Stirrups class is a favorite of those who may not have ridden in a while. Full Circle Equine graciously supplied hospitality for the exhibitors and a Q & A session with the vet.

Starting early on Saturday both the hunter and jumper rings were going “full blast,” with over 90 horses in multiple classes to fill the rings. The winds had died down and the sunshine was warmly welcomed.

A new time saving measure was implemented at this show: giving specific start times for each jumper division. “People seemed to like that idea,” said Ann Ford.

Ann Ford is already making plans for the 2015 schooling show series. “Next year we want to have a fun class at each show as a fundraiser.” The 2015 show dates are: March 27-28, MegFord I; April 25, Hunters Edge Stables; May 23, Oak View Stables; June 19-20, MegFord II; July 11 and August 1, Oak View Stables; August 21-22, MegFord III; September 25-26, West TN Pony Club; October 17, Oak View Stables; October 30-31, MegFord IV.

The awards banquet for the 2014 schooling show series will be held February 28, 2015. Year End Points are posted at the MegFord website: www.megford.com
