Hello all!

I was wondering if any Area 1-ers out there knew of any jumper shows that take place on weekends in the greater Boston/Southern NH area to get some SJ practice for a youngster. I love the Apple Knoll shows, but really can't swing Wednesday nights with my work schedule, so was curious if anyone knew of others in the area that were held on Saturdays or Sundays.

Thanks in advance!

Cutter Farm is in Dracut, MA, which is right on the border in between Lowell and Pelham. The 2-phases are fun, though you have to do dressage, too. Dressage is in the indoor, and SJ is outside in the huge outdoor... The courses can be tricky, though!

During the winter, the shows are SJ only, in the indoor, which is big enough for a full course, albeit a little tight. The attendance at the winter shows is very high if the weather isn't too bad... There are not a lot of full course sized indoors in this area.

These shows are usually on Sundays, but occasionally on Saturdays.

Midnight Moon Stables in Chelmsford has jumper shows a few times during the summer. Are you a member of Equinesite's Bulletin Board (www.equinesite.com)? If you don't get a lot of help here, there might be people with other ideas over on the Massachusetts BB.

Why not try a h/j show? Many to choose from in MA ;)

Here are some leads for you. Some of the NEHC shows are USEF rated, some aren't, but it gives you a good starting point. 'Opportunity Classes' even at USEF shows are not-rated & do not follow the USEF rules & regs & therefore don't carry the accompanying fees.
