Schooling Series

School Saturday; Show Sunday!

MACTA hosts several schooling weekends throughout the year. Cross country schooling is offered on Saturday, with an opportunity to compete on Sunday. The schooling shows are designed as a low-cost, low stress introduction to the sport of eventing and give competitors the opportunity to compete in dressage, show jumping and cross-country jumping in one day. MACTA members receive discounted rates for cross-country schooling as well as schooling show entries.
