playdays

The Bismarck Horse Club Playdays are a favorite event among the BHC members. Taking place at our very own facility in Bismarck, ND, these fun shows are a way for family and friends to gather with their horses for a day of friendly competition and learning.

Put on from May through August, the Playdays are an affordable way for adults and children alike to show off their horses, their riding abilities, or maybe even pick up a few tips along the way. Yet another great appeal to these local shows, is there are five age divisions, so you know you are competing at your own level.  It’s always more fun when you are among your peers.

***ALL ENTRIES ARE DONE AND ACCEPTED ONLINE.  ENTRIES CLOSE TUESDAY EVENING PRIOR TO THE EVENTS.  NO ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER CLOSING.  NO ENTRIES ACCEPTED DURING THE DAY OF EVENT.  There will be no exceptions.***

The Playday committee puts in a lot of hard work to find qualified judges so you know you are getting your money’s worth.

Class format

The Playdays offer a full range of English, Western performance, and speed events. Everything from classes over fences to western pleasure and fun game events are available so you know you’ll always be able to find your very own niche class.

These shows are a great place to strut your stuff, get your feet wet, or just practice. 

Age divisions

Something the Bismarck Horse Club loves to brag about is the fact that we attract enough people to be able to host four different age groups and still have enough entries in each class to make it worth it. We use January 1 of the current year to determine age so you won’t have to worry about having to change age groups in the middle of the year.

Age divisions are as follows:

  •  7 & under - Walk/Trot
  •  8 -  11      - Childrens
  • 12 - 14      - Juniors
  • 15 - 18      - Seniors
  • 19 & up     - Adult 

Fees

The best part about the Playdays is that they are one of the few family entertainment opportunities left that are affordable. The entire family is able to come down for the whole day without breaking the bank.

Walk/Trot - $18 all day fee
All other divisions -$6/class or $30 all day (see Fee Schedule for details)
Exhibition entries - $6 / class / horse

All entries not sent via the website registration process and received prior to 5pm, Tuesday preceding a show, will incur an additional $10 charge and a $2 office charge.
