Updated: HT Registration 101 for Fullmoonians!

October 10, 2023

Last updated May 12th, 2024: For an introduction to eventing, check out the USEA’s Discover Eventing site.

If you’re getting ready to register for a HT, you probably have a lot of questions about how to register…

Hopefully this information will help!

Registration for FMF’s Horse Trials is done online at evententries.com (“EE”). (You’ll need to make an EE account to register for a show.) Some shows do not use EE, and may use Xentry (via USEA) or StartBox Scoring.

  • Here is a link to the how-to guide for EE, since it can be a bit overwhelming at first! https://www.loom.com/share/f68cf9210aaf44ceace1e6b5476ed2b0​
  • You may have the option of Horse (H), Rider (R), or Open (O) when registering. If you’ve never evented before, it’s safe to assume that the Rider division is best for you, but when in doubt, just know that ALL riders are eligible for the Open division. Check out USEA’s explanation here.
  • If you need to make any changes to your registration, please reach out to the show secretary for the show– for FMF HT, the email is entries@fullmoonfarm.com.

Please note the following tips specifically for FMF riders:

1) Trainer: Please enter Karen Fulton (You can search using USEA # 58956) as your trainer.

2) Waivers: Every show organizer requires different waivers. For a recognized event, there are USEF/USEA forms that must be uploaded every time you compete. Usually the show organizer has its own unique waiver in addition to other USEF/USEA forms. Tip: For FMF HT, FMF riders may leave the FMF Waiver upload blank. We will mark your waiver as completed because you’ve already done it as an FMF rider.

3) Coggins: Simply put, a Coggins is a piece of paper with the horse’s info on it. You must submit a copy of the Coggins every time you enter an off-site show, which is why this is required on EE. All FMF Coggins are in the white binder next to the desk in the office. They are alphabetical by show name, not by barn name (for example, Chuck will be under “December’s Chestnut Rain”). You should take a photo of the horse’s Coggins and upload the file when registering for a show. Tip: You can leave the Coggins upload blank when you register and add it later.

5) After you’ve registered: If you need to change your entry for any reason (e.g., change of horse or division, scratch due to injury) you MUST email the show secretary (for FMF HT: email entries@fullmoonfarm.com). We’re in the real horse show world now, so letting Ms. Christine, Ms. Karen, or Ms. Ashley know unfortunately isn’t enough. That being said, you should always consult one of us before you make any changes, so we can ensure everyone is on the same page!

6) Coaching Fee, Shipping fee, &/or Horse-Use Fee: You’ll need to drop off a check in one of the Payment Boxes at the farm. (Please combine all fees onto one check.) For FMF HT: Coaching is $50 and Horse-use is $50; if paying both, please write one combined check for $100. For off-site HT: Costs for coaching, horse-use, & shipping will be on the sign-up sheet. Tip: Write your check & put it in the Payment Box when you sign up on the sheet in the Grooming Barn, so you don’t forget!

7) To ensure your online entry has been accepted & is complete: For FMF HT: Go to https://fullmoonfarm.com/competitions/horse-trials/ and click on “Entry Status here.” For off-site HT: Go to the HT’s website, or email the Secretary if you cannot find the link.

8) Dressage Test: Your rider needs to learn the dressage test assigned for their division. A list of the tests for each division (complete with links to the tests!) can be found on the show’s Omnibus. For FMF HT, it is also on the FMF Horse Trials page. Tip: If you don’t own/lease a horse, sign up for a Practice Ride via Hopoti, so your rider can practice their dressage test!

9) Ride Times: The week before the show, a link to the Ride Times will be posted. For FMF HT, they will be posted on the FMF Horse Trials page. This is how you’ll know when your rider needs to do each phase of the horse trials. Tip: Ride Times are always subject to change. You’ll need to re-check your times the night before the show, and make sure the times are the same the morning-of when you pick up your show packet. For FMF HT, packet pick-up is at the Chateau.
