We’ve constructed an over-the-top, regulation obstacle course for the Working Equitation Practice Sessions & Mini clinics. The obstacles are key to practicing the Ease Of Handling and Speed Trials within Working Equitation. Our entire course or several obstacles will be set during each practice session. We will provide different sets with varied obstacles at each session. Come to one or come to all of the practice sessions. You can come to just have some fun with the obstacles or come with the intention of going on to compete at local, regional or national levels.  The sky is the limit. We assure you our practice sessions and course will prepare you for anything you want to do in Working Equitation. Come join the fun.  Look forward to seeing you.

If there are not a minimum number of participants registered we will cancel the date.  Due to the labor demands to set the course and the investment KarMik Acres has in the obstacles there will be no refunds so please make sure you are able to attend prior to registration.  If KarMik Acres cancels a session refunds will be issued.

We must have a current coggins on file for each horse attending and a signed KarMik Acres release form for each rider.  Practice sessions are open to all breeds, disciplines and levels of riders, however, these are not teaching/coaching sessions. In order to attend Practice Sessions, riders must first attend a KarMik Acres’ mini clinic or have prior experience with Working Equitation and have our approval. KarMik Acres Group Members will have priority  in registration.

Rider Cost: $40 per session rider, $15 each additional horse. Coaching is available at an extra charge (email for details).
Auditors: FREE! Come find out what the sport is all about.
