 Classes/Ride time tipsgrayoverlog

  • How may horses can I  enter?
    You can sign up  3 horses, but be mindful that your x-county times and stadium times could be only 30 mins apart.  You many need help if you are riding 3 horses.
  • When is stadium? And, why are there no times for stadium?
    Stadium is normally Sunday morning at 8:00 AM we go in numeric order.  Stadium could start earlier if the show is big.  We do not have specific times but you can guess your time.  All rounds are 2 minutes with 15 minute breaks between levels.  If the show is very small (80 horses or less stadium may be held on Saturday.  (All 3 phases the same day.)  This would be announced before you arrive to the show grounds.
  • How do I get my ride times?
    Times will be available on this site approximately 7 days before the show. It maybe later if we are taking late entries.
  • I would like more time between rides. What can you do?
    We try and give people as much time in-between rides as possible. This is not always possible especially if you are riding more than one horse.  If you have an issue with times please contact the Show Secretary ASAP.  If something can be changed it would be better to know BEFORE check-in day.
  • I’d like to swap ride times with a friend -- is that ok?
    You CANNOT ride out of order in a class unless there is a time conflict.
  • Can I change my division after I enter?
  • Yes.  If the schedule not done yes no problem!  There is a fee for the change.  After the rides have been schedule you can still change if the there is an empty spot or a scratch.

  • What is your policy for refunds.
    There are no refunds for any reason after closing.  We will allow a substitute horse or rider for a change fee.

Stabling tips

  • What is the Silverwood stabling like?
    The outdoor stabling complex has 160 stalls. Each aisle includes convenient watering and lights. Stalls all have sliding doors and individual turn down windows so your horse can look out.

    Larger permanent stalls may be available in the main barn.  If you pay for the larger stall and it is not available, you will be refunded the difference and be assigned to the complex.

    We cannot guarantee empty stalls next to or behind stallions.

    Tack stalls are available in most cases.
     
  • stabling1Can I move my horse next to my friends if stabled in another aisle?
    Please do not change your assigned stall location without talking to Silverwood management unless it is with-in your group. Be mindful that if you have a Mare we have made sure she is not behind a stallion.  If you move your horse you need to check the other horse around her.
  • I want to stable with my friends at upcoming show. What do I need to do?
    If you are coming with a group PLEASE use ONE name.  For example: pick a farm name or one person or horse.  Have everyone in the group specify this same name.
  • How many bags of shaving should I get?
     There is one bag included in your entry fees. We recommend 2-3 bags per stall. Please order your savings early in the day. Shavings must be ordered by 3:30pm,  If possible order shavings with your entry!
