Our fall schooling show on Sunday, November 3rd brought the whole VRA community together for a fun and interactive afternoon! The show provides a chance for our students to receive feedback from a judge who has never seen them ride before, get to know other riders who do not normally ride in their lesson, and watch exhibitions by Vogt's most advanced riders and also our newest beginners.

Vaulting, which is often described as gymnastics and dance on horseback, helps Vogt's beginning riders develop coordination, balance, strength, and creativity while working in harmony with the horse.

FEI Junior Freestyle Exhibition

Vanessa Barnes on Faolan

Vanessa and Faolan competed in the spring of 2013 at the FEI Junior Level in hopes of qualifying to be on the Region 3 Dressage team at NAJYC. In order to qualify, she had to create a musical freestyle, which is what she performed the day of the VRA schooling show. Some compare NAJYC to the junior olympics; it is a competition held in July each summer that encompasses most disciplines of equestrianism and allows riders from all of the U.S. and Canada. Vanessa and Faolan werethe first alternate for the Region 3 team(southeast). 


When all of the competitive classes and exhibitions were finished, several of the reiders participated in a game of "musical chairs" on horseback, providing a fun and lighthearted end to another successful Fall show.
