Starting in 2016, the Maryland Horse Trials invites the instructors/coaches of our competitors to identify themselves to us. Because instructors/coaches are so important to the quality of event riding, we would like to recognize their efforts. We will tally the results of competitors with identified instructors/coaches in order to present a monetary award to instructors/coaches at the conclusion of the 2016 MDHT event series.
Betty Thorpe passed away in December. We will never forget her 10 years with us. Betty was here for the first horse trial as our dressage judge. How I wish she could be here for the next 10 years. We miss her. To honor her, the Betty Thorpe Award will be awarded annually to the dressage volunteer who best exemplifies Betty Thorpe's kindness, strength, willingness, and generosity of spirit.
Come ride or audit, Thursday October 13 and Friday October 14, 2016 on The Maryland Horse Trials Competition Course! $10 audit fee includes breakfast and lunch.
