Stone Gate Farm Horse Trials

Thank you so much for volunteering at the Fall Horse Trials ! We couldn’t do it without your help!

ALL volunteers NEED to e-sign a Stone Gate Farm Release form (if not already done, only needs to be done once a year) And if for haven't already filled out the USEA Waiver when you signed up click here to download the form and e-mail it to the secretary@stonegatefarm.org.

Please check out the links below as well as the Volunteer Resource page that has important information that will help make your job easier, including NEW instructional videos.

All parking will be down below by the stabling barns in the designated car parking area. If there is a dressage test going on in the ring closest to the drive please wait until they are done. Please check in at the volunteer table under the pavilion a half hour before your scheduled start time.

Dressage and Show Jumping will pick up their lunches at the food trailer, they should be ready and waiting for you if you submitted an order. Cross Country lunches will be delivered. Don't forget to drop off your lunch orders before heading to your fence.

Links: Please check the links below for the schedule as some times or assignments may have changed. If by chance you can’t make it please text me at 330-277-6964


Dressage:

Dressage warm up for rings 1 & 2 will start in the sand ring below Show Jumping . Riders for rings 1 and 2 will be sent to the final warm up 5 minutes before the start of their test. Please instruct riders to enter the arena as soon as the horse before them heads down the centerline for their final halt for ONE lap around the inside of the ring at the trot and then exit to wait for the signal to start. Ring 1 by the pond is a bell and Ring 2 by the dome will use the truck whistle. We need to stay on schedule!


Show Jumping:

Regardless of your assigned position, we will need all hands on deck for course changes. Those times are shown on the Order of Go. Thank you

Cross Country:

The briefing for Saturday will be at 11:30 under the pavilion. For those who are working dressage and will miss the briefing, please pick up your clipboard and radio and take it with you. The letter assignment indicates which clipboard is yours. Don't forget to drop off your lunch orders before heading to your fence and put your Letter Assignment on the form. If you are with a friend, put both orders on the same form.

Please review the guidelines for jump judging and watch the video on the resource page. For those who are riding in the morning, you may pick up your clipboard and radio at the volunteer table under the pavilion anytime. You may drive your car to your jump just to keep you more comfortable. PLEASE DO NOT drive in the alfalfa fields. But be sure to bring a chair if you won't be using a car. We will be scoring live so it is very important that you clearly call in any penalties at your fence as they happen. WE WILL NOT BE PROVIDING MAPS, PLEASE GO TO THE LINKS ABOVE TO VIEW AND PRINT MAPS IF YOU NEED TO.
