4-H Dressage Schooling Series Show Set for July 4

The Cumberland County 4-H Horse Program will host a Dressage Schooling Show on Monday, July 4 at the Cumberland County Fair.

Dressage is an advanced training discipline of horses in which horse and rider combinations perform precision movements at the walk, trot and canter. Entries are judged on exactness and consistency. Dressage has often been described as ballet on horseback.

The show will include introductory level, training level and first level tests as well as upper level tests. The cost is $25.00 per ride. Prizes and 1st-6th place ribbons will be awarded in each class. Closing date for entries is the Monday before the show.

This Dressage Schooling Show Series is sponsored by the Cumberland County 4-H Horse Committee. The officers of this group include President, Janet Biederman of Bridgeton; Vice President, Ingrid Bergen of Vineland; Robin Donohue of Bridgeton and Treasurer, Barbara Newkirk from Roadstown.
