Hey- I am interested in finding some dressage schooling shows in North and South Carolina (Maybe some TN and GA). Anyone know of any or have any ideas how to find some?

Try these two sites. The Foothills Riding Club usually has three very nice shows each year (dressage and combined training) as well as sponsoring lower level horse trials. They are usually posted on the following two websites. Well organized, good turnout, nice facility.

The harness track at Pinehurst,NC has a series of dressage shows that are always nice.

I think the prizelist would be on sporting services..or just check out ncdcta.org and can most likely find links.

What part of NC are you looking and how big of a schooling show are you wanting? A few off the top of my head are:

McNair's Country Acres (they have a ton throughout the year) in Raleigh
FenRidge Farm in the Hurdle Mills area
Stoney Creek Stables in the Reidsville/Caswell Co. area

All three of those have websites, they also hold CT's as well, FenRidge actually has schooling HT's.

Averett College (it may be University now) sometimes has them (the equestrian facility is actually in NC whereas the school itself is in VA)

TTC is great. They usually hold cross country schooling, dressage show, and a jumper show on the same day. It's awesome. Took a jumper pony and a dressage pony once and had a blast.

Thanks guys! I am in Asheville part of the time and then will be near Southern Pines for a month or two. I am just wanting to get my guys out for some dressage fun without spending a ton of money on rated shows.

Thanks for your help!
