July Show Entries Open, Prize List Posted

We are pleased to announce that we have opened entries for our 2021 July Cascade shows, including the brand new Pacific Crest Preview on July 10-11, generously presented by Oak Street Law Group, and our signature Pacific Crest Open and Pacific Outreach, now expanded to 5 days, July 14-18.  We would like to thank all of our great sponsors for helping to make these shows possible.

Our July shows will feature more of our exciting spotlight events and provide everyone a fun showing opportunity this summer. As a reminder, all of rated events in July are eligible for our Cascade Circuit Championships, and you can qualify for a discount if your entries are received prior to the early entry deadline of Monday, June 28.

To get started with your show planning, check out the prize list for our July shows. Be sure to request your RV sites if you haven’t already done so. We have seen high demand for our June shows and expect the same in July, so please get your entries in soon.

Trainers: Entries for the July shows through Equestrian Connect and HorseShowing.com are not yet available. If you use those systems, please make sure you have requested stalls for your stable and ordered tack stalls so that we know your plans.

Don’t forget that this year we have all new footing in our Grand Prix jumper ring, and that Hunter 1 action will take place in the Horse Park’s fabulous new covered arena. There are lots of exciting changes afoot in Cle Elum, and we are excited for you to enjoy them.

We remain committed to delivering a safe showing experience, and we remind you to read our COVID-19 guidelines as you prepare to come to the Horse Park. As with our June shows, we will be providing daily packets for trainers to make exchanging information with the Show Office easier while supporting distancing.

Everyone in attendance, including staff, officials, and family members, will need to sign our required liability releases and COVID-19 agreement before arriving at the Park this year. We urge you and the rest of your barn family to do this as soon as possible, and to help any non-showing family members who may join you to do the same.

The demand for our June shows frankly took us off guard, and things have been more hectic than usual. We have rolled out new technology this season and have some new faces in the Show Office too. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work out the kinks, and we remain dedicated to delivering our signature fun and family-friendly vibe at our shows.

We look forward to seeing all of you in Cle Elum this July!

June Entries Are Open, Prize List is Available… and Demand is Overwhelming

Spring is in the air, and it seems as if the “long night” of 2020 may finally be withdrawing. And what better way to celebrate than with a horse show?

Apparently, you think so too! The sheer number of stall requests we have received for our June 2021 shows, the Swiftwater Invitational and Alpine Preview, has been unprecedented. We have been working hard to accommodate everyone and have negotiated a 25% increase in stalls for June. This is more than the Horse Park has ever hosted, and yet we still have more requests than we have stalls available.

Of course, stalls are never confirmed without entries. Word got out ahead of this announcement that entries were open and the prize list was posted, and you have been sending your entries in. We are so so very close to being fully booked, so please complete those entries today. We are commited to giving priority to sponsors, as without their support these shows simply could not happen, but other entries will be accepted based on date of submission reconciled with the dates of your stall requests. We are still catching up, but will do our best to confirm your entry in as timely a manner as possible.

Online Entry is Easier than Ever

For 2021 we are pleased to announce that we have our very own online entry system, custom designed for us. It is one we believe you will find easy to use. There is no cost, and you can do both your show entry and your required release forms conveniently in a single session from our web site. As always with technology transitions, there may be a learning curve, so please give us feedback on your experience; we are always listening.

Also new for 2021, we have partnered with HorseShowing.com by Sport Data, Inc., the show management system used by the World Equestrian Center. You can use this system for entries and to check schedules, results, and more.  Things may look a little different from what you’re used to, but we trust you will find this new system easy to use and accurate. And of course, we also continue to accept online entries through Equestrian Connect.

Say Hello to Our New Show Secretaries: Lauren Wasserman & Nancy Gannon!

We are delighted to share that Lauren Wasserman and Nancy Gannon, both hailing from California, have joined the Cascade Horse Shows show management team for 2021. Both of them bring years of experience to this role, and we are thrilled to have them working hard for you. You might not actually see them much, as we will be implementing a “limited contact” show office experience this year for the safety of everyone, but they are excited to meet you when possible.

Thank you again for your support, and we look forward to seeing you in Cle Elum this summer!

The Cascade Horse Shows Team
