Competition & Adventure

Competition

While RPE's main preference is Jumper competitions, RPE has competed in Jumpers, Hunters, Pleasure, and Equitation in the local horse show series over the years. RPE horses have been invited to the Thoroughbred Alliance Horse Show and the Colonial Classic Horse Show upon winning several divisions in the Jumpers and Hunters at the local BEST Horse Show Series.

Adventure

Glow Night on Horses

While competing is plenty fun, RPE makes it a mission to enjoy more than just ribbons with the opportunities that horses bring. We regularly schedule trips for trail riding at nearby state parks as well as try out small cross-country courses available. RPE plans swimming trips annually during the summer season and is constantly looking for more locations to add to our swim list. We have participated in fox hunt clinics in the past with various regional hunt clubs and plan to continue participation with the Marlboro Hunt Club. RPE also keeps an eye out for fundraising events such as Pimlico's Canter for the Cause which is always a blast. And if any trail ride obstacle courses come up we will go out of our way to put in our name. We also have fun setting up our own obstacles and cross country jumps at home to further test our horses and to make sure that they are ready for anything that comes their way when they go off-property.

RPE 2019 Schedule

Reigning Phoenix is taking 2019 off for competing at the local show series for strengthening foundational training and focusing on non-equine work. Note that while RPE is not actively showing in 2019, we are still planning and taking trips off-property in our wanderlust and are also focusing on structuring the ESHS Equestrian Club as 2019 is the first year of official hosting. As for future notice, RPE is looking forward to the 2020 show season to begin competing in the local show series again.
