On May 21st, Elvenstar hosted another successful Academy show. Many riders in the bi-annual Elvenstar Academy Shows are first time competitors. For everyone who has competed before, you know this was a big a moment, and for everyone who hasn’t it’s a big moment to look forward to. Grandparents and aunts and uncles come from all over to watch their young family members compete. In Academy Shows ribbons don’t matter, it’s the satisfaction of completing your first horse show. Every rider walks out of the arena with a huge smile, because they know they went in the arena and showed the best of their skills, and that’s exactly what we love to see. These shows wouldn’t be possible without the support of the kids’ parents, who make it possible for them to ride and cheer them on.

All the classes at this show ran smoothly from the Beginning Eq classes at 8:30 in the morning to the Field Classes at the end of the day. Aside from the classes, there was a bake sale and tack sale held at the show. Both sales benefited the Elvenstar IEA team, raising a total of $234. There was also a booth supporting All in Stride Equine Therapy where horses are rescued and used to help a wide spectrum of people with emotional and physical disabilities.

Finally, a big congratulations to all the riders that participated and thank you to Olwyn Kingery for judging!
