Competitors are expected to clean their tack before a show. Competitors are expected to arrive at the barn before the show to help with morning chores and load their tack and horse. Competitors are also required to return to the barn after the show to help unload horses and equipment. If two students are sharing a horse, they may decide to split pre and post-show chores between them (e.g. one student does pre-show chores, the other does post-show chores). Failure to abide by this policy will result in a $30 charge.
