Here are some of our FAQ:
Q: What is the difference between the Local Champions Tour and the Sweet Dixie South Schooling Days?
The Local Champions Tour is a showjumping horse show with judged classes, formal show attire, prize giving ceremonies, and you'll need to submit your entries online by the Tuesday prior to the show weekend.
The Schooling Days are a casual schooling opportunity with showjumping courses set in a show environment. There is no strict dress code. You can show up on the day and do as many rounds as you need to school. There are no eliminations, and we allow re-jumping of a line that needs more practice.
Q: How does the Ride 'n' Bike work?
A: First part of the course will be on horse back over single fences. Faults will be counted as per usual.
Then competitors will hop onto a bicycle in a designated area and complete an obstacle course on the bike. A mistake at an obstacle will count as 4 faults.
Fastest round with the least amount of faults wins
Time starts when the horse rides through the start timers and finishes when the bicycle rides through the finish timers.
Limited to 15 entries. We will have a briefing on the rules prior to event, at the course walk.
Q: How do the Friday classes run? Is it like the schooling days?
A: Our LCT Fridays are unjudged schooling rounds. $35 per round. Multiple rounds are allowed per height.
Q: What is the dress code for the Local Champions Tour?
A: Friday is informal show attire (ie. polos and shirts without a white collar are permitted). Saturday and Sunday is formal show attire (this includes show coats).
Q: Are there any other fees than the entry fees?
A: We do not have ship-in fees, we do not have grounds fees, we do not have non-showing fees, we do not have nomination fees. The only extras are a stall and/or RV spot, a $25 office fee per horse ONLY for those that would like the flexibility of editing their entries (changing classes/days/heights), and a $50 late fee per horse for entries received after entries close.
Q: Will the Local Champions Tour be judged?
A: Yes, the lower classes will be judged and results posted online. There is a Red course and a Black course per day, per height. Only the Black courses have prizes and/or prize money.
Q: Is the Local Champions Tour USEF rated?
A: No. We are not affiliated with any governing body at this time.
Q: Are there any age restrictions on your classes?
A: Not at this time.
Q: How is it different to Schooling Days?
A: Schooling Days are neither judged nor placed. They are solely to practice in a show-like environment. Those rounds are not timed, and there are no eliminations, and you can jump as many rounds as you need to school.
LCT is a horse show with the same rules we know from rated jumper shows with regards to penalties, eliminations, and placings.
