2023 show dates are below.  In 2023 the Canterbury and Grand Oaks circuits will be separate.  There will be NO minimum show day requirements in 2023, and double pointed shows will be limited to the  final show of the year at each venue.   The ACEA/Canterbury show may be slightly different divisions than Grand Oaks, and management has built an additional 4th arena for us to use should entries warrant!!

GENERAL GRAND OAKS SHOW NOTES …..

AT GRAND OAKS STALLS ARE NOW RESERVED ONLY WITH ACTUAL COMPLETE ENTRIES INCLUDING SIGNED WAIVERS and CLASS NUMBERS. …so be sure and get them in if you know you’re coming so you don’t get closed out.  Stalls will be assigned by the Monday morning before the show given the complete entries we’ve received .  We may sell out of stabling prior to Sunday before the show and status will be noted on our Facebook page and this website.  A signed, scanned and electronically sent entry form with credit card information is the best way to enter the show.  (You can still substitute a check or cash at the show if you want to  do so)  The show office, will only serve one client at a time per show secretary and prizes/ribbons will also be outside on the porch area. Prizes and ribbons must be picked up at the show where they’ve been earned, not after.  The more you have completed and submitted electronically prior to the show the better!!   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 $55 per day or the difference will be added in the show office.  Entries without class numbers, rider or parental signatures and credit card info are not a valid nor complete entry and stalls will not be issued.

In 2023, at Grand Oaks 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.  You can call Noble Nightwatch also at  727-804-1694 to arrange for additional services as well such as morning feeding.
