This year, Barnstaple South invites riders to their Fall Jackpot Schooling Show Series. At each schooling show, riders have the opportunity to clinic with our dressage judge on Day One and perform your test in front of them the following day in the show. Each dressage test is videoed with judge’s commentary thanks to Richard Equine Video. Jackpot! Learn more here.

Dressage and Show Jumping will use the beautifully maintained fiber arenas at HITS Ocala. The cross-country course will be numbered, flagged, and open for schooling the week prior. New additions to the cross country course include everything from logs, coffins, banks, ditches, and a beautiful water jump. The course has everything you need.

Tamie Smith’s year has been nothing short of action-packed as she packed up all 25 of her competition horses and made her way to the East Coast for the first part of the year before hopping on a jet to Tokyo where she served as the U.S. team reserve for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. She then stayed overseas and competed abroad for a little while before returning home to the West Coast. While this year has been full of opportunities to show, her aspirations are bigger than just competition.
