CHA presents Spring Fling fundraiser May 1 & 2

April 20, 2010

On May 1 and 2, The CSU Collegiate Horseman's Association will hold their annual Spring Fling fundraiser. The event features horse riding classes for all types and skill levels.

Classes for all skill levels

The summer horse show season will kick off on May 1 and 2 when the Colorado State University Collegiate Horseman’s Association, or CHA, hosts their annual Spring Fling show and fundraiser.

“This is a great way for us to contact the community and be involved with the horse industry. It also gives members of CHA experience running a show. It’s a great experience all around,” said Jessica Stockton, CHA president.

The two-day show will offer classes for all levels of riders in both English and Western riding. From in-hand classes for the very youngest riders to jackpot level reining classes for experienced riders, there is something for everyone.

“We expect to have mainly people schooling—people with a wide variety of horsemanship levels and people getting ready for the summer show season,” Stockton said.

Register today

In total, there will be 25 English classes on Saturday, May 1, and 22 Western classes on Sunday, May 2. Riders who wish to participate are encouraged to register before April 23 to receive discounted registration.

Registration for jackpot classes will be $15. For all other classes, early registration will be $6 per class, and the price will go up after April 23 to $8 per class.

CHA is also currently seeking sponsors to help put on the show. Sponsors can receive placement in the show program and an opportunity to put banners at the event.
