Hall PC, Attorney at Law, Hunter Ring 2. This year the Bedrock Series offers two-day shows of both hunter and jumper classes for riders in both disciplines.

The four sections are Age 12 & Under, Age 13-17, Age 18 & Over, and Professional. Riders are first tested against the competitors in their group, and then the top four riders from each group advance to the OHJA Equitation Challenge Final to determine the overall winner. The entry fees from the class entirely benefit the Oregon Hunter Jumper Association. The judges put the finalists through their paces, and in the end awarded top honors to pro Tara Niculescu, trainer at Capstone Equestrian in Bend.

    Father's Day was Sunday, June 17th, the final day of The Oregon Trail. In honor of the wonderful horse show dads who support their offspring's endeavors in the show ring, the third annual Quiet Rein Riding School Father's Day Leadline class was held. Dads boldly competed with tots, showing off their outstanding horsemanship as they were lead into the arena. The judges were faced with a plethora of outstanding riders, and in the end announced a tie, with all exhibitors being awarded a blue ribbon.  However, it was Pickles the Pony in a frothy, sparkly purple ensemble carrying pint-sized Leighton Bourgeois that caught our eye and slayed us all with cuteness.
    The Dibbins Fox Cup
    Each Sunday of the series, Team NW celebrates sportsmanship by recognizing an amateur rider exemplifying superlative horsemanship. Chosen by staff, these candidates live the principles of the late Cynthia Hoyt Dibbins, who cared deeply about the sport, and the horses and riders who populate it. At the Oregon Trail, horse show staff selected Marian Ehlers, who rides at Capstone Equestrian with Lindsey Garner and Tara Niculescu. Marian fundraises for Healing Reins Therapeutic Riding and is a Junior Ambassador for Just World International. She is well rounded as although horses are her passion, she also plays tennis and golf.
    The Maverick Trophy
    Each year at the Oregon Trail, the Maverick Trophy is presented to the barn that traveled the farthest to attend the show (and the Maverick pizza party!) For the second consecutive year, Archway Equestrian was recognized for their journey. Archway also generously fed trainers and grooms lunch on both Schooling Tuesdays; we salute Clare and Corey for their thoughtfulness!
    Bedrock Show
    The 2018 Bedrock Schooling Series debuted with a show June 16-17, running in conjuction with The Oregon Trail. These OHJA-approved shows are also USHJA Outreach competitions, giving riders and horses an outstanding opportunity to compete and gain experience in a quality venue without the fees of rated shows. This year the Bedrock Series consists of 2-day shows with both hunter and jumper classes being offered.
