Gulf Coast Arabian Horse Club is thrilled to put on this show and thrilled that you are considering entering the show. To have a safe and successful show we WILL be following the requirements of USEF, AHA, the State of Texas, and Brazos County. We ask your cooperation and acceptance of the changes that will be required to be in compliance, i.e., masks/face coverings, hand sanitizer, practice safe distancing, etc.
One USEF MANDATORY Requirement is the completion of the 'Waiver and Release of Liability, Assumption of Risk and Indemnity Agreement' which must accompany Entry Forms.
On or before September 1, 2020, we will post the most current COVID-19 requirements that we must adhere to in order to host this horse show (under COVID-19 dropdown tab). If at that time, you feel you cannot commit to following these requirements and you have already entered, you must provide written notification prior to Wednesday, September 16th, and upon receipt of it we will shred your check or refund your payment in full.
To reduce health risks, it is paramount that we implement and adhere to the recommended health safety guidelines. Therefore, we WILL have a Hospitality Room but it will only be stocked with bottled water and individually wrapped snacks. It will NOT have coffee, gallon containers of tea/lemonade or donuts that were provided in past years. So, for those of you who love a good cup of coffee in the morning, you may want to bring a coffee pot.
As amply captioned in an ASHA article, “What Matters, Rolling with it Matters,” please remember we need to look outside ourselves as we go back to shows and put the safety and health and consideration of our fellow enthusiasts – exhibitors, owners, trainers, grooms, support personnel, show officials, volunteers – before our own. We can do it! We can roll with it!
On a brighter note, for our 2020 Show:
TRAIL - We have added additional trail classes to our show schedule and increased the number of goes to 70. Trail will start at 8:30 AM on Sunday, September 20 in the North Arena and be judged by Buck Grass (R). We reduced the class fee since this division will NOT be judged concurrently.
WESTERN & HUNTER - We've added Amateur Owner to Ride (AOTR) classes.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are not certain if the Aggie Football game scheduled on our show weekend will happen or not. But, we do suggest you make your reservations early to take advantage of these
