Light Horse Show Prize List September 20-22, 2019 - Hants ...
Welcome Competitors to the 254th Hants County Exhibition!
.
          Horses have been involved in the exhibition since the first one in 1765
beginning with horse racing and auctions. An oval track was constructed in 1771
for the horse races and the exhibitor that bought the greatest number of horses
during the exhibition won a saddle, bridle, and a medal. The light horse show has
developed over the years to where it is now with a mix of english, western,
gymkhana, and driving divisions.
          In 2012, the “Dexter Construction Mary Henry Equi-Centre” was built to
give competitors an improved facility for warm-up and winter riding protected
from the weather.
          In 2019, new footing was implemented in the arena to further benefit the
competitors and their horses. This change has received much positive feedback
from all disciplines that have experienced it over the summer months.
The Hants County Exhibition is looking to continually improve the facility to create
a better experience for all competitors and the general public.

          We are happy to announce that Hants County Exhibition will be a Scotia
Series pointed show again this year through NSEF.
          We are excited to bring back some of the favourites including the Hants
County Jumper Challenge and the Walter McLean Memorial Horsemanship
Challenge. We also are introducing some new classes this year with the Hooves,
Paws & Boots Showdown, the Bits N Bridles Hunter Classic and the Low Handy
Hunter Stake.
          There will be beautiful ribbons and championship prizes offered again
this year, along with exceptional prize money.

We hope to see you at the 254th Hants County Exhibition!

New for the 2019 Light Horse Show

Hooves, Paws, & Boots Relay (Jumper)
We are excited to offer new timed events for both jumpers and gymkhana riders. Teams
will be created with one horse/rider combination, one dog/handler combination, and one
runner (could be the rider or an extra person). The horse/rider combination will go first
by completing a jumper course of 0.75m, and then they will either tag their runner or
hand their horse off to a groom. The person will complete a series of obstacles on foot
before tagging the dog handler to start the dog agility course. The timer will stop when
the dog finishes their course.

Hooves & Paws Relay (Poles)
We are excited to offer new timed events for both jumpers and gymkhana riders. Teams
will be created with one horse/rider combination and one dog/handler combination. The
horse/rider combination will go first by completing a pole-bending course set on the
quarter line. As they cross the finish line, this will cue the dog handler to start the dog
agility course. The timer will stop when the dog finishes their course.

Low Handy Hunter Stake
The Low Handy Hunter Stake is a new class offered in 2019 for horses/ponies showing
in hunter divisions of 18”, 2’, and 2’3” and ponies showing in the combined pony hunters.
There will be no related distances. This is a one-round class. The course will be set at 2’
and 2’3”.

Bits N Bridles Hunter Classic
Bits N Bridles Tack Shop located in Falmouth, NS is offering a new special hunter class
for all riders showing at 2’6” and higher this year. The Hunter Classic will run as a two
round class at 2’6”, 2’9”, and 3’. Each rider will complete their first handy hunter round at
their respective heights and receive their score. The top 10 scores will come back for a
second handy round starting at 3’. Rounds at each height will run lowest score to
highest score. Scores from both rounds will be added together to determine the final
placing.
