UPHA Chapters To Host New Academy Equitation Challenge

In a joint effort to help educate riders and promote equitation at the academy level, UPHA Chapter 10 and Chapter 3/4 have joined forces to create the UPHA Academy Equitation Challenge. Three shows throughout the year will be hosting qualifying classes for advanced and intermediate academy riders. The class will consist of rail work followed by a standard workout. Riders who finish first or second in the qualifying classes are eligible to show in the $750 championship that will be held at the UPHA Chapter 10 Academy Horse Show in Elgin, Ill., on Nov. 13 and 14. Two U.S. savings bonds will be awarded to the first and second place riders with $500 going to first and $250 going to second place.

The three shows that will be hosting this year’s qualifying classes will be the UPHA Chapter 10 Academy Horse Show on April 10 and 11 at Indian Hill Equestrian Center, ASAW Summer Academy Horse Show held July 17 and 18 at the Wild Wind Equine Center in Waukesha, Wis., and then the final qualifier followed by the championship will be held at the UPHA Chapter 10 Academy Horse Show held on Nov. 13 and 14 at the Indian Hills Equestrian Center.
