NY Amateur

Has anyone been to this show? I think the idea of an all amateur show is really interesting. Could be a good change of pace for everyone. A chance for small timers to come out and participate. A change for trainers to bring some ammies from their barn and just kick back and cheer them on. Doesn’t hit any weekdays, so it’s easy to go. Has anyone been? How is this show different from others? Doesn’t look like there were a ton of people this year…

Also, does anyone happen to know if there was a photographer? I didn’t find that info on the prize list.

    Here is the link for the photographer:
    Some cute and unusual photography (for example, there are actual canter departures!)

    I have shown there a number of times. Very laid back atmosphere… very fun time. I was sad to see the low numbers, I always had a good time.

    I’m not sure if you’re wanting only recognized shows, but Vermont Morgan Heritage Days (held July 4 weekend) has a really nice schooling show and is basically all ammies.
