Riverwood Spring Fling Horseshow

Riverwood’s Spring Fling Horse Show is a glorious event in which riders with special needs can share their gift for horseback riding and demonstrate progress toward goals by participating in judged classes. Horse show participants will include Riverwood riders, as well as a group of 10-12 riders from Bright Star Stables in Rougemont, NC. The show consists of 20 classes divided into Equitation, Obstacle Course, and Pole Bending. While the students are showing off their skills, families and friends can spectate classes, eat lunch (provided) participate in games and raffles, and walk through our new Mobile Education Outreach Unit and visit with the miniature ponies!
