This weekend's shows (FADS/LMF Jumper Rounds and Spring Starter #2) are packed with competitors and are both on a wait list status. That being said, we are low on dressage warm up volunteers. We are hoping that our competitors will treat our volunteers with the utmost respect and tell them how much they are appreciated. Like we've said before, there would be no eventing competitions without our volunteers. So when you see one, thank them. And next time you are not competing, give back to the sport we all love volunteer to help out. It's important and we promise you will have fun!
Due to circumstances beyond our control, we were unable to record the XC scores. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Linked below are the RIDE TIMES and entry status. Apologies for the delay!
Missing paperwork can be emailed or brought on Tuesday, and missing payments can be made online or also brought Tuesday.
