Riverwood Obstacle Playday
September 5 2020
We believe that obstacle training is the ultimate way to gain a stronger partnership with your horse and to experience an overall horsemanship challenge. At every Playday there is an opportunity for riders to try a variety of challenges while applying principles of desensitization, patience and trust. Riders and horses of all ages and skill levels are welcome to attend. No previous experience is required. The day has a relaxing tone were riders can come try the obstacles at their own pace. With our knowledgeable and patient staff on hand, we can assist riders attempting new goals and challenges

How the Playday Works
– Hours of Operation 10am-5pm
– Cost $25 a horse (riders are encouraged to bring multiple mounts)
-Open door policy – in order to allow riders to work at their own pace, riders may leave and return to the course at any time once their entry fee has been paid
– man-made and trail obstacles available. Course is grass and outdoors unless extreme bad weather and then the obstacles will be moved indoors. (regulations and scheduling will then apply)
– no pre-registration is required. Register upon arrival. First come first serve basis. If the course becomes too busy riders will be organized into heats. There will be an etiquette waiting system in place. Max 15 riders on the course at one time. Riders will rotate and take turns.
– Wranglers will be available on site at any time to assist new riders

Jackpot/Camping and Cowboy Social-September 5 2020- 6pm
The fun doesn’t stop after the playday!!!!! Riders are encouraged to join in on our jackpot social on Saturday night! Riders simply pay $10 bucks for the chance to take all the money home!

Sunday September 6th- Riverwood Ranch Fun Cowboy Challenge
The Canadian Cowboy Challenge Association decided to cancel their point challenges this year due to the Covid Restrictions. We here at Riverwood decided to use this opportunity to host a FUN Competition where riders of all levels can come and try the challenge without the worry or stress of a points competition. This fun show will allow riders to gain valuable knowledge about the CCC while also getting a chance to show off their obstacle skills while competing for some amazing prizes! Whether your an avid obstacle competitor, or someone who has always wanted to try this type of competition, this is the weekend for you!

Competition Details
Classes will be split into Three streams. $30 entry fee per class.
