Showing is an important part of learning to be part of a team and to participate in a competitive sport. At Starlight Farms we believe taking part in the Show Team teaches additional responsibilty and good sportsmanship. It requires more dedication on the part of the student and encourages a commitment to excellent horsemanship.

Showing is a fun and exciting activity. It encourages camaraderie among the students and a feeling of pride and achievment. It also requires quite a bit of time commitment on the part of everyone involved.

In addition to the time and emotional investment in showing, there are fees involved. Below is a partial list of expected fees:

Trailering to local shows: $50 per horse
Coaching Fee: $50 per day

Pony Use Fee:
