The Las Vegas Arabian Horse Association would like to invite riders from all disciplines with horses of any breed to join in the fun at their 1st Trail Trials Competition. The event will be held at Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs in Northwest Las Vegas on Sunday, May 2, check-in starting at 7:30 a.m. and competition starting at 9 a.m.
A Trail Trials competition consists of several different ‘natural' obstacles for the horse and rider to negotiate in a safe and relaxed manner out on the trail. Judges, sometimes ‘hidden,' score the horse and the rider as they complete the pre-set course. Scoring is based on the ability to complete the 'obstacle', within the time allowed and for calmness. Safety is emphasized at all points. Riders may ride solo or in small groups. Prizes will be awarded.
The LVAHA organization is really looking forward to this event. Spectators are welcome as are riders that wish to participate in the trial but not compete for prizes. Food, games and music are planned so that everyone can have fun at the event. This is a great alternative equestrian event sure to provide a little healthy completion mixed with lots of fun for Las Vegas riders young and old.
