High Point Horse Week – Quadrille
July 11 @ 1:00 PM - July 14 @ 4:00 PM EDT
High Point Farm is excited to offer several sessions over the summer for riders of all levels.
Quadrille Week: Each day is 1:00-4:00. The first half of each day will be in a “classroom” setting, and the second half will be riding
ALL STUDENTS SHOULD BRING:
– Sack Lunch
– Riding Helmet if you own one; if not, a public one will be provided
– Water Bottle
ALL STUDENTS SHOULD WEAR:
– Long pants or breeches
– Boots or shoes with at least a half-inch heel (cowboy boots work great for the beginner/novice sessions, unless they already have paddock boots) *kids may NOT ride in sneakers*
– Shorts and light clothing may be worn after horse activities conclude (recommended); closed-toe shoes are preferred
– NOVICE/ADVANCED SESSIONS should wear paddock boots and half chaps, if they are not already wearing tall boots
QUADRILLE: 4 riders at a time will practice and perform a single dressage test (performed on the last day of the session); we will have a “novice” group option, where the test will only be walk and trot, and an “intermediate” group option, where the test will include canter.
On the Thursday of the Quadrille Session, the students will perform the quadrille that they will have practiced all week. Since this Session is smaller, parents are encouraged to attend the quadrille performance! Alaina will let everyone know what time to be there for the performance.
