Some class ideas for a fun H/J show geared towards kids/novice riders?
I'm looking for some ideas on show classes to spice up a show. We're gearing it towards kids/novice riders/green horses/schooling, want to keep it low key but offer some classes that maybe people don't see at most shows but would like to.
We want to really focus on the riders equitation & horsemanship vs. the horses style/way of going.
Not really looking for "gymkhana" type stuff or "egg & spoon" races etc but more english classes or hunter jumper with a twist. Some flat classes mixed into the day to attract some riders that might not jump or want to jump. We're aiming to offer something different from the standard hunter show consisting of a thousand courses of "line, diagonal, line, diagonal, line...and a hack class".
Thoughts or ideas? What was a memorable class for you and why?
