What are server shows?
Server shows are server-wide horse shows that will run on Saturdays on a weekly basis. The horse shows are based off of real-life disciplines from the English and Western riding styles! Server shows will operate in seasons; each season will include 6 shows. Either Western or English. Styles will alternate between seasons. If you place in the top 6 at a show, you will earn points and at the end of each season the top 6 riders of each division will be invited to participate in a rodeo (Western) or an eventing show (English) where the final placings for the season will be decided and players will earn prizes!
How do points work?
If you place in the top 6 in a server show you will earn points. The better you place, the more points you will earn.
1st place – 7 points
2nd place – 5 points
3rd place – 4 points
4th place – 3 points
5th place – 2 points
6th place – 1 point
At the end of each season (6 shows) the top 6 riders of each division in each category will participate in a rodeo (Western) or an eventing show (English) where the final placings will be decided and various prizes will be won! The champion of each division will win a title (Ex. Western Div 2 Champ).
What are divisions?
Each show is divided into 4 divisions based off of your horse’s swiftness level. All divisions participate in the same show however they will be placed (1st, 2nd, etc.) separately. The divisions are divided as follows:
Division 1: 0-25s
Division 2: 26-50s
Division 3: 51-75s
Division 4: 76-100s
Please note that at this time we are not running a division 4.
***You are able to pause the leveling of your horses swiftness/agility/groundwork stat with the command /h pause <StatType> <HorseName>

Show Day Schedule
To enter into the server shows you must drop a piece of paper into the appropriate hopper by the server show info board with the horses name, your IGN, and the horses swiftness level on it. Entries close on the day of the show once vet check is closed. Ideally you should aim to have your entry submitted 1 hour before vet check opens in order for things to run smoothest.
All horses must see the vet prior to participating in the show to ensure they are injury/illness free as well as up to date on their vaccines. If your horse is found to have an injury or an illness they will be unable to participate in the show until they are treated and fully recovered. Vet check is open for 1 hour before the show is scheduled to start.
The shows will begin with division 1 at its scheduled start. If there is any practicing to be done it is suggested you do so before the start time. There is no guarantee you will have time to practice in the show arena once we’ve begun. When it is your turn to go your IGN will be called over broadcast. If you miss your turn there will be a last call before starting the next division, if you still are not present you will lose your spot in that division.
Placings will be announced in-game over broadcast and posted in #ranch-n-fun on discord for ALL divisions at the END of the show each day. Total points for the season can be viewed in the Show Standings
If you have any questions about the server shows you can PM Jo#3626 or Dare#9109 on discord or /mail send moonstruckmoth (Jo) or lovesickmoth (Dare) in game.
