Pegasus Equestrian Center has scheduled its third Hunter/Jumper show. Taking place June 25, this one will feature a Thoroughbred division. Proprietress Erin Rorabaugh promises “a fun-filled day of great classes and great prizes!”

Rorabaugh said she conceived the series after hearing from many local riders that there was a need for one-day shows that would provide green riders, as well as busy adult amateurs, the opportunity to compete, hone their skills and enjoy an afternoon with their horses without the huge investment in time and money that the major shows entail.

Trainer Kevin McGinn applauds the fact that the show will feature a Thoroughbred Hunter division. “In the old days, they used to have special ‘non-Thoroughbred’ hunter classes. Now it’s reversed: most of the horses showing are Warmbloods, and the judges’ have become conditioned to the way they move. But the Thoroughbred is a wonderful breed. They cover the ground so beautifully.”

The Pegasus shows welcome all breeds, and the earlier shows had a substantial pony contingent. “Erin’s event is a great introduction to showing,” said McGinn, who is based at Pegasus. Even those who aren’t competing would be well-entertained spending a day under Pegasus’ majestic oak trees, checking out the beautiful facility, located in Thousand Oaks.
