The day will begin at 9 a.m. with the drill teams — including the recent national award winning Crimson Acres Glory Riders—competing for more than $1,000 in prizes. At noon, high school and middle school IEA (Interscholastic Equestrian Association) riders will demonstrate how they are paired-up with a horse, and spectators will have a chance to judge which they think will win.

At 1 p.m. the “versatility" contest begins with riders trying their luck on an exciting course of obstacles to test control, teamwork and courage. Throughout the day there will be demonstrations of equestrian training, information about horses and organizations and food for sale on the grounds.
