Equestrian group to host final open horse show of season Saturday

Rowan Advisory Council for Equestrian (RACE) 4-H clubs will host the final open horse show of the season on Saturday at the Ellis Park Event Center, 2056 East Ridge Road.
This show is open to all equestrians and spectators. Gates will open at 8 a.m., and participants must be ready to ride by 9 a.m. Entry fees are $8 per class or $45 to ride all day. Current negative Coggins required for each horse on the grounds. Admission for spectators is free and food and drink concessions will be available.
There are 60 classes, including English, Western, Gaited, games, a trail class and a costume class. Classes are open to novice riders who are in their first year of showing (with fewer than five ribbons), junior (ages 12 years and younger), senior (ages 13-18) and adult (ages over 18). Daily champion and reserve champion are awarded in each of the six divisions (Novice English, Novice Western, Limit English, Limit Western, Open English and Open Western).
The 4-H horse program encourages youth to develop leadership abilities, build character and assume citizenship responsibilities. Appreciation is also developed for horseback riding as a healthy form of recreation. Good sportsmanship is taught through a friendly, competitive atmosphere.
