Learn, Ride, Have Fun…
Even Win Scholarships!
The Horsemastership program tests the
participants’ knowledge of proper horsemanship, horse anatomy, basic horse health, grooming and safety.
The competition involves three tests: riding, written, and grooming. The Region participant with the highest total score in each division will be declared Champion, and will be eligible to represent their Region at the CSHA State Show of Champions. Participants at Show of Champions earn buckles, prizes and Champions are awarded college scholarships.
This is an educational program, offering the beginning horseman the opportunity to acquire a solid foundation of equine knowledge and skills. It challenges the experienced horseman to build upon this established foundation and to achieve excellence and distinction.
Any CSHA member in good standing may participate.
Five riding categories are offered: English (Jumping), English II (flat only), Gymkhana (barrels and poles), Western (Stock Seat) and Combined (Jumping and Stock Seat).
Within each category there are 2 divisions, Juniors and Adults.
