The Professional Riders Organization introduces the PRO/AM Team Competition Series where juniors/young riders and adult riders team up with professional riders in a fun, educational team format. The kick-off of the series will be June 26-27 at the Surefire Farm Horse Trials in Purcellville, VA.
Offered in addition to the eventing levels at each competition, the PRO/AM Team Competition Series pairs a professional rider with three or four junior/young riders and adult riders competing at the Beginner Novice,Novice and Training levels.
PRO/AM teams vie for prizes and ribbons in a score sheet competition. Each competitor will receive a gift for entering the team competition, a team photo, and a course walk and coaching tips from their PRO rider.
Members of the winning team at each competition will receive prizes, such as Ecogold’s Secure XC saddle pad.
“PRO is excited to be able to offer an occasion for professionals to come together with young riders and adult riders in a new way,” said Samantha Lendl, PRO Executive Director “We hope that this will be a fun format that offers some educational opportunities to participating riders.”
