Speed Shows

Generally held on the first Saturday of every month is our family game show day!  This show features riders of all ages and skill levels demonstrating their skilled partnership with their horse while having fun in a supportive community!

Each show event has four classes: barrel racing, polebending, and two “fun event” classes that vary and are often themed with the month in which the show is held!  The order of the events are not necessarily as they are listed here.  Please verify at registration.  While the focus of these classes are the sportsmanship and community, we do offer ribbons for places 1st-6th, as well as grand and reserve prizes for those who ride in 3 out of the 4 events and earn the most points at the end of each day.  As an added bonus, if you are a member of the West Volusia Saddle Club, these points can also accrue to our fabulous end of year awards at our annual banquet! Points can be reviewed at every monthly meeting. 

Don’t miss out on the fun!!
