Wednesday, November 7, 2018— End-of-Year Awards Banquet.  Prizes listed below.  For information on the banquet, including ordering tickets, please see the Points page.banquet17

Our facility boasts excellent footing, great judges,  new jumps, multiple warmup arenas, professional lighting/sound systems, sprinkler systems for the outdoor rings, and spectator seating. Our shows have always been fun and welcoming to all riders. Our staff is friendly and helpful, and our ribbons are memorable. Come and join us!  Ribbons are awarded to the top 6 riders in each class. Champion and Reserve Champion ribbons and prizes will be awarded in each division with 3 or more entries. The shows operate under the rules of the VHSA (Virginia Horse Show Association). Points earned from ribbons will be reported to the VHSA, DC Area Horse Show Association, TIP, and recorded here at Red Gate Farm. Red Gate Farm hosts a wonderful banquet at the end of the year that recognizes the top 6 riders in each division for the year who have attended 3 or more shows.

  • Trailer parking is available  with easy access to the ring and facilities. Picnic tables and bathrooms are available, as well as water for your horses. Our upstairs viewing gallery in main barn has lots of seating/tables, kitchenette, heat and air conditioning, and bathrooms.

We encourage all beginners, kids, first-time competitors, even adult beginners to begin showing at Red Gate Farm. Our staff will assist young riders if needed. Classes with young children will receive small prizes in addition to ribbons. Red Gate Farm wants everyone to have a pleasant, safe, and fun experience. Good luck to all!!
