How  Ride Times are Scheduled 

All shows usually begin at 8:00 AM.    The large ring (20x60) will be used for ALL classes but may not meet standard arena size in certain situations. 

Note: The ring size may have to be changed depending on the needs of the show or the venue.   Decision is up to the discretion of the Schooling Show Manager/Committee.

Generally, all shows will start with the higher-level riders going first but is subject to change based on scheduling needs.

NODA and the show committee/ management reserve the right to limit entries, to add, combine or cancel classes, and to make whatever changes may be required by the circumstances of the competition.  When cross entering divisions, it is possible competitors will ride their higher level test first, as we will try to run higher level tests first before it gets too hot, but there is no guarantee on ride time.

Why did we implement this change?
 Our judges have been asking us to organize the show schedule so upper level tests are in the morning when the judges and scribes are more "fresh". Upper level tests are more involved and take more concentration than the Introductory level tests. Also upper level tests require longer warm-up time. Competitors have asked for this schedule change to enable them to ride in the morning before it gets too hot.
