June 15-21, 2015 - Horse highlights

What horse happenings does June’s third week hold for Midwestern equestrians?

Equine highlights for the third week of June (including Father’s Day and the first official weekend of summer) include breed shows, dressage shows, equestrian training clinics, fun shows, gymkhanas and speed shows, hunter/jumper shows, mounted shooting, pleasure horse shows, rodeos, team sorting, Western dressage workshops, and more.

Horse happenings for the week are listed chronologically for quick reference.

This listing is not exhaustive, although it is aimed at including as many Upper Midwestern equestrian events as possible for the specified period. Show bills and additional information may be obtained directly from event hosts or organizers.

As a general rule, advance registrations, sign-ups, enrollments, stall deposits, and other arrangements are needed. Current negative Coggins test results and veterinary certificates are musts for traveling horses – particularly if equines cross state lines. Horse show, training clinic, and other equine event hosts may choose to block entry to horses arriving on their premises without appropriate documentation. Haulers and horse owners are advised to research requirements ahead of time.

Changes or cancellations sometimes occur with equestrian events. For this reason, riders, trainers, horse owners, auditors, spectators, vendors, volunteers, and others are exhorted to confirm details for their chosen Upper Midwest horse happenings before departing.
