Whether you want to prepare for future events or looking to compete in the USIHC National Ranking, the Virtual Summer Show is a great opportunity to test your skills.
Before registering, please be sure to read all of the information on this page. Participants must be active USIHC members. You may check your membership status by logging in to your profile. All Registrations and Videos must be submitted by July 1, 2020.
The Sanctioned Show classes qualify for National Ranking and are indicated by "NR" on the class list in the registration form. If you choose this option, your video(s) must comply with these area specifications:
- The area in which the horse must perform must be an oval with an approximate circumference of 200-250 meters. An area of somewhat less size may be satisfactory but there must be long sides of sufficient length for pace and for tempo differences (slowing down and speeding up) in tolt.
The Schooling Show classes offer an opportunity for riders who do not have access to a large oval area to compete. If you do not have access to a riding space that meets the Sanctioned Show requirements, you may use a 75 meter (246 ft) straight flat surface (such as a driveway).

After registering for your classes, you will receive a link by email to upload your videos.
- Please make and submit a separate video for each class. Videos must be made between May 1 and June 30, 2020. Videographer should stand in the center of riding area and continuously video the performance (editing or splicing are not allowed). Keep Horse/Rider in center of the frame. Maintain perspective (do not zoom in or out). Indicate beginning and end of long side and middle of short sides with cones or flower pots. Please, no music or commentary during the performance.
- Generally, each required gait in a class is ridden for one round. The exception is walk which is ridden (judged) for a half round. Specifics for each class are below.
- If you are riding for the schooling show and are using the straightway option, please have your videographer stand in the middle of the run and video continuously (even when you need to turn around), until the program has been completed. Two runs will be the equivalent of one round on a track.
- In order to ensure the entire program (class) is captured on the video, please begin video as soon as the horse enters the track and continue video until horse leaves the track.
- Label the video as follows: first 2 letters indicate National Ranking or Schooling Show, next 2-3 are class, Riders Last Name, Riders Initial of first Name, Horses Name.
- example 1: Jane Smith video for the sanctioned show in Novice Tolt on Herdis = NRT7SmithJHerdis
- example 2: David Jones video for the schooling show in Intermediate Four Gait on Thor = SSV3JonesDThor
Please note that the judge has the right to reject any video that he finds is of insufficient quality to allow judgement and/or if the track exceeds required specifications for a Sanctioned Show.
