Sign ups will open at 9:30 and close at 10:30 a.m, and you may warm up your horse at this time. Listen-up for riders will begin at 10:30. At 11:00 a.m. we will start with brief (30 sec.) introductions to the gallery: Line up in the arena. On your turn be ready to go as soon as the last person has moved back into line. Walk up to the rail and give your name, your horse and one sentence about why your are competing and then move back in line.
If you are competing in the Turn-out/Costume competition, stay in the arena you will all ride at once on the rail for 1 circuit in one direction, then reverse for 1 circuit and line up in the center for questions from the judges. The arena will then be split in two areas: A & B. A will be the side for those competing in Horsemanship Patterns, and Franchise will run simultaneously on the B side. If you are competing in both, once you have done one competition, you can move to the other side for your turn. There will be a short break while equipment is brought in for the Non-Martial Challenge Course, and you will be give your order to go.
Once all competitors have ridden, we will clear the arena and take a break from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. There will be no schooling on any games course, but you may walk it unmounted. At 2:30 the Mounted Archery range will be set up so the competition may begin at 3:00 pm. As soon as Mounted Archery is finished, the courses for Swords and Hastiludes will be set up side by side.
After your run, if you have entered the other competition, get in line for your turn. Once everyone has had their go, you will get instructions for the Mixed Weapons course which will be Gambler's Choice. After scores have been tallied, Finals will be announced.
