WELCOME TO COYOTE CROSSING EQUESTRIAN CENTER
We are very excited to be hosting four Equine Trail Sports rides this year!
June 11 and September 3rd will be an Obstacle Trail which means it will be a combination of pasture and mountain trail course (about 3 miles total) with at least 8 obstacles. Multiple horses per rider may be allowed. You are able to ride in small groups with friends or family to compete.
September 4th will be an In-Hand Challenge on the mountain trail course. There will be at least 8 obstacles to be completed.
Throughout the four events you and your horse will collect points towards our tournament. There will be a Champion and Reserve Champion for each of the three brackets (Novice, Intermediate, Advanced) as well as for youth (7-17 years old). Tournament awards will be given out at the end of the October 1st ride.
A lesson on the course is NOT required to compete in these events
So, how does it work?
Upon the approach of each obstacle, you inform the judge of the Challenge Level that best suits you and your equine, allowing you to best showcase your equine, helping you achieve success. Obstacles are not timed!

It's back! Our annual Buckle series. We will be hosting two Mountain Trail Shows. These shows will include 5 division levels: Novice, Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, and Open. Each division level has an in-hand pattern and a riding pattern that you may choose to compete in.
Novice: This is for riders and horses that are new to the sport.
Level 1: These are walk only patterns.
Level 2: These are walk/trot patterns.
Level 3: These are walk/trot/canter patterns.
Open: Normally a walk/trot pattern but could include cantering.
At the end of each show a High Point and Reserve High Point Champion will be announced. At the end of all three shows the total rider/horse team points will be tallied to decided the High Point Champion and Reserve Champion.
There will be 3 buckles given away at the final show. A Novice buckle, and Adult buckle, and an Open buckle. There will also be a Youth trophy given away for the your high point champion.
