Auburn Equestrian Has The Mane Event


Auburn Equestrian Has The Mane Event

If you haven't been to an Auburn Equestrian meet you're missing out on one of the most fun, FREE events in town. 

Not only is this event free, but the best part is not being saddled to your seat. Every equestrian meet features pony rides, cornhole, inflatables and (our personal favorite) paint the pony! Oh yeah, and there is an equestrian meet going on too. The horses are beautiful, and the riders are remarkable!

These ladies aren’t horsing around. Watch as they compete in the western side of the competition featuring horsemanship and reining. They’ll also compete in Equitation Over Fences and Equitation on the Flat. In over fences, the riders are judged not only on their ability to negotiate a course of jumps on their horses, but also on their style and position while they do it. On the flat, riders are tested at the walk, trot, and canter at the lower levels and at more difficult gaits.

These ladies usually pony up in September and the season lasts through March. So, quit stalling and put one of these meets on your calendar today.
