2021 Western Game Show
Equine Country is cancelling this years Game Show Series. This is not a decision we take lightly, but several concerns compel us to take this course. Perhaps its due to everyone's dealing with Covid-19 stress, but there were more complaints in 2020 than in all the years we've been doing shows combined. More complaints about rules, complaints about disqualification calls for horses and riders, complaints about staff handling unruly horses in and out of the gates. Our first concern has always been the safety of our staff and volunteers as well as for the safety of our participants. Dealing with the avalanche of complaints has made this increasingly difficult. We have thoroughly enjoyed running the game shows for the last 18 years and even though the economy has changed dramatically, we have continued to keep everything the same. To the extent where the expense to have the shows have outweighed the entry's. We are continually reviewing the events we have from the formats, affordability, operations, and considerations for today's world. Any future events do and will take all of these into consideration. So the 2021 gaming shows are canceled. The decision as to whether there will be others is still being looked at, but if so, changes to cost and format will be considered.
