THE NO SHOW is designed to give young horses and/or young riders show jumping experience over courses set at the “A” show standard.

Hillary Ridland created the innovative THE NO SHOW equestrian circuit, providing riders, owners and trainers with an unprecedented high-quality, low-cost alternative to the traditional “A” & “B” licensed show circuit events.

Based on the European schooling show model, THE NO SHOW events emphasize good footing, world-class jumps and safe courses, while doing away with the unnecessary expenses of judges, announcers, ribbons, trophies…and “hassles”! The concept of eliminating the costly necessities of traditional “competition” management, has allowed younger riders and horses to focus on the training benefits of jumping courses at an “A” circuit facility like the Riding Park, but at an extremely affordable price. This enormously popular series has been Hillary Ridland’s give-back to the local equestrian community. Beyond its obvious training benefits, it is well-known for its pleasant atmosphere, live music, and free food.
