THE VISTA ONLINE HORSE SHOW
Continue to show through this epidemic!

The Vista has decided to keep the horse show bug alive in all of our fellow equestrians. We will be hosting an ONLINE horse show. This will allow for the equestrian community to continue to show from the safety of their own home/barn. We will be having TWO photo classes and TWO video classes. All Entries will be judged by a PROFESSIONAL LICENSED judge. Video's need to be taken from "C" and do not require a full dressage ring (at least corners and letters around the ring). If those interested need a place to take a video, The Vista will be offering our dressage ring for $25. The top six placings will be pinned. All ribbons will be available for pick up at The Vista along with any prizes won. If mailing ribbons is needed, we can mail them to anyone for a $3 mailing fee. Once the entry has been submitted, no refunds. If an entry is received with no payment, the entry will not be counted.

Photograph Class: $11 Video Class: $25

Opening Date: 3/31/2020 Closing Date: 5pm on 4/11/2020
