"Don't Dream It, Be It!"
CCEC Show team competes around the United States. Many of CCEC's show team riders have gone on to win World and National titles and People's Choice Award wins. They are dedicated to their sport and practice hours upon hours for their achievements.
Anyone who says riding isn't a sport should talk to a Cape Cod rider. Most of our riders started right here in our Riding Academy, and practice 4-6 days a week. If you have dreams or aspirations of showing at a National or World level, contact us and we can walk you through the process. It is something we have been helping our clients with for over 30 years! There is no age limit, there are classes at the horse shows for the smallest of exhibitors, age 8 and under, to adult classes. It's never too early or too late to show a horse!
In order to participate in horse shows with Cape Cod Equestrian Center you must own or lease a horse, or be a member of our prestigious Select Academy Team. We participate in horse shows as close as the Springfield, Ohio and as far as Kansas City, Missouri. We typically travel to at least one show per month with our horses and riders.
Showing horses is one of the most exhilarating experiences you will ever participate in. Whether you choose to show on a local level or you show at a world class level it is more fun than you could ever imagine. The possibilities are endless for riders that choose the showing path with their riding!
The typical "Show Season" usually begins in late March and goes until mid November.
