Rain or shine, the Summerland Rodeo Grounds is hosting its first show, which is a fundraiser for the grounds, Friday to Sunday.

On Saturday, the Summerland Rodeo Grounds Equine Development Committee will be hosting a Jumping Day. Classes will include everything from beginner jumps (rails on ground and low cross rails) to the fast and exciting two-foot-nine match the clock and power and speed classes. New this year is the Survivor Jumper Rounds that involves prize money and other prizes.

On Sunday, the show committee is offering the precision riding of Dressage. This is an event that although not as fast and dangerous as the jumping, showcases the communication between horse and rider as they follow a specific pattern. They are judged on accuracy, quality of movement and attitude and are awarded points for each part of the pattern. This year the show will also have a Western dressage set of classes that will be judged on the same criteria as the English version, but the horses will be shown in Western tack.  Visit us at
