We regret to let our riders and families know the March New Smyrna show at Silver Sands is cancelled at this time due to precautions mandated by the Corona Virus.  Please watch the schedule to see if we can add another date or will be double pointing another New Smyrna show to make up for the March date.

In a joint decision between HSITP and Grand Oaks it has also been determined it would be in our riders, families and nation’s best interest to cancel the April Grand Oaks show due to the Corona Virus.  This decision was not made lightly and was given great thought.  We had a very large number of dedicated riders and owners, growing exponentially by the day,  who wanted to horse show that first weekend in April, but when weighing the potential serious communal health related implications of holding what was on it’s way to becoming a major event, it was determined that not doing so would be in the best interests of our friends and families.  As a horse show manager and owner, Jeanne W. values her customers, friends, families and staff’s safety and good health far more than a weekend’s horse show’s fleeting glory.  Let’s all say a prayer, listen to our nation’s guidance and return to horse show another better day.  It is hoped that by “flattening the curve” now we will be able to move about and return to our schedules as planned for the remainder of the shows this year in each location.  

As a result of the removal of the April Grand Oaks show, the August Grand Oaks show will be double pointed.

Please remember that all stalls at Grand Oaks are billable after Tuesday.  If we have a large show and have to use additional stabling brought in,   Jeanne writes a very large check to the stall rental company(Each stall is $125 plus dumpster removal) on Tuesday whether they fill or not… so the number she gives them on Monday or Tuesday morning is how many we get billed and pay for.. FEI Tent Tack Stalls are now $125, and can be split among riders using them.  This is the actual cost of the stall to the show.

AT GRAND OAKS STALLS ARE NOW RESERVED ONLY WITH ACTUAL COMPLETE ENTRIES. …so be sure and get them in by SUNDAY if you know you’re coming so you don’t get closed out.  Please look at the class schedule and indicate the class numbers you plan on entering.  If you have a stall, your entries must total a minimum of $50 per day or the difference will be added in the show office upon check out.  Entries without class numbers are not a valid nor complete entry and stalls will not be issued.

If stabling is limited due to show size, all horses in a stall are charged a minimum of $50 per show day plus office/medic fees. Showing horses will receive stabling preference.  In 2020, mandatory security nightwatch through Noble Nightwatch (lic vet tech)  is in effect @ $5. per night unless show notifies otherwise. All horses/ponies will be monitored at minimum every 2 hours, night and morning feeding services also available at additional charge.
