 1/13/2020 -I still cannot get on my facebook accounts. I have tried calling Facebook (which they will not answer) and it still states when trying to log in that I have to wait.  Sorry for this inconvenience. Please email me at floridaequineathlete@gmail.com, if you should need to contact me.


Rules & Regulations for 2019 are posted. Click on the link in the next column and  Please read. 

Overall Highlights

Point system and awards:
1)  For the Open, although the top 3 are awarded, points will be given to the top 6 at each show  (30, 25, 20, 15, 10, 5).  NEW - For the Youth, top 2 are awarded; but the top 4 in each division at each show will receive points (30, 25, 20, 15).  This is to, hopefully, eliminate so many ties.
2)  6 shows held during the year and to stay in standings
3) Membership dues are $35 (will include subscription to the Florida Equine Athlete online magazine; 
4) Year end Awards - Open 4D - Champion in each division will win a buckle; Reserve Champion will win trophy stirrups; and 3rd will win bronc halter. Pee Wee Champions will win trophy  at the end of the year.  Youth 2D champions in each division will be awarded a buckle; Reserve Champions a bronc halter. No other placings for awards.
5) Incase of Ties - this is what will be done: 1) the one who helps at  shows (notes will be recorded of who, what, hrs) the most will get the spot; if still a tie then,  2)   the one with the most attendance will get the spot.

Dress Code: No spagetti straps, halter tops, low cut shirts; keep respectable; boots - no tenneshoes, sandals, etc. Please see rules and policies for full detail.  Helmets are optional

CASH ONLY ENTRIES AT THE SHOW W/CASH PAYOUT!  Can pre enter with prepay. If prepay, non members get the member rate

No alcoholic beverages allowed! This is also due to insurance. If you are caught with alcohol (whether trying to hide in a cup, etc) you will be told to leave. There will be no refund of your entry fee and if you win money, this money is forfeited. This applies even if you have family members with you or friends with you drinking. Please be responsible.  


Due to insurance requirements - All dogs must be kept on a leash and exhibitions are one at a time. There is no riding around in the arena while exhibitions are taking place.

NO DRAMA is allowed at the events. Please leave them at home, your barn, or at the gate. :) We are here to have some family filled, clean fun.


Please do not take the following personal, it is just me and how I work. When the show begins, only 1 more other person allowed in the announcer's stand with me, unless I call for one more. As you know, I multitask and to stay straight, I cannot think when I have a lot of other stuff going on in the background around me. I want a smooth, flowing show and that is what I aim for each month. This is a personal goal of mine. :)


After results are announced, unless I state that you can come and payout is ready, please do not come rushing in the announcer's stand until I announce it is ready to be picked up. 


PLEASE PLEASE!!!  I AM GOING BACK TO THE OLD SCHOOL OF WHEN I PUT ON SHOWS!!!


IF YOU WANT A TIMED EXHIBITION AFTER CLASSES (SHOW IS) ARE DONE, YOU NEED TO LET ME KNOW BEFORE THE SHOW BEGINS.


WHILE SHOW IS GOING ON, PLEASE DO NOT COME IN THE ANNOUNCER'S STAND. WAIT TILL DRAG(S). REMEMBER, THOUGH, ON THE BIG DRAG, I AM GETTING PAYOUTS READY.
