Three Ring Circus
Frequently Asked Questions


Q: Where do I check-in?

A: Dressage riders will check in at the Ribbon/Hospitality tent next to the green show office.
Hunter/jumper riders will register and check in at the (green) show office.

Q: Do I need a different show number if I’m showing in multiple disciplines?

A: No, once your horse has been assigned a show number (show number stays with the horse, NOT the rider), you will use that same show number with each discipline.

Q: Can I enter more than one discipline?

A: Yes. The rings run simultaneously, so it just takes a little communication. The gate people are very good at keeping track if you let them know ahead of time.

For example, if you are riding dressage and are entering hunter classes and believe the times may conflict, you should go see the hunter gate person and let them know which hunter class(es) you entered and let them know your dressage times. Then the gate person can make a note so they can wait for you in the hunter ring, if necessary.

Q: What is appropriate show attire for the Three Ring Circus Schooling Show?

A: All competitors must wear an approved helmet and appropriate riding boots when mounted. NO EXCEPTIONS. The rest is up to the rider – basically, neat and tidy, presenting yourself well.

Q: How do I scratch from a hunter and/or jumper class?

A: You will need to complete and submit an “Add/Scratch” form found in the show office. The original will stay with the show office and you will need to take the copy to the ring gate person. No refunds will be made after your class has begun.

Q: What if it rains?

A: The show will continue and only be stopped if the weather becomes dangerous.

Q: Can I bring a horse and not show him/her?

A: Yes, there is a $10.00 insurance fee for the day.

Q: Will there be food at the show?

A: Yes.

Q: Where do I find my score?

A: Dressage scores will be posted on the backside of the announcer’s stand and will then be available to pick up at the ribbon/hospitality tent. Hunter and jumper scores will be found at the ribbon/hospitality tent.
