Throughout the year, MacNair’s Country Acres holds Open Schooling and MacNair’s Riding School Shows. Our advanced riders travel to competitions at USEF “A” and “AA” events, NCHJA, and local and regional “C” shows.
This diversity allows beginners an opportunity to start their showing careers and gives more seasoned riders a venue to keep their competitive skills sharp. We believe success in showing is defined by how much improvement rider and horse make from show to show. Ribbons tell us we have done our homework well.
The United States Equestrian Federation’s highest rating goes to “A” and “AA” shows. The Hunt Horse Complex in Raleigh, North Carolina is host to USEF “AA” shows and “A” shows throughout the year, and is just six miles from the farm. We also attend other “A” and “AA” shows throughout our zone and region.
Many of the riders at MacNair’s Country Acres participate actively in local North Carolina Hunter Jumper Association “C” shows throughout the state of North Carolina.
Every year, we host Open Schooling Shows for hunters and jumpers. Our beginner through advanced riders have an opportunity to compete, not only against each other, but also riders from elsewhere who trailer their horses in. The jumps, footing, judges, and show staff are all of superior quality. Lesson students, boarders, and riders from other farms are welcome. Formal show clothes are required. Riders from off the farm should fill out the Schooling Show Entry Form and email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Winners from each division will receive gift certificates from the local M & M Tack Shop in Raleigh!
