Join us for the QRF Winter Derby Feb 20th with XC Schooling Feb 19th

Quail Run Farm Competitors,

We are pleased to announce our Annual Derby with Dressage Judge Becky Brown, L*.

For the FIRST time our Show Jumping will be held in the usual Start Box field, which is close to trailer parking. The Jump course will flow onto the cross country course and proceed around the beginning of our usual HT course and include the banks and water jump complexes and finish by the lake.

This will make life so much easier especially for our foot weary trainers!

We are willing to offer a Modified Prelim/Training course for anyone wishing to warm up for the season ahead, to include Prelim Dressage followed by Prelim SJ and a more challenging Training XC!  If we do not have three entries we will not flag the course.  It takes many hours to flag every course!  Please see the event flyer here.  Enter at www.PearlsOffice.com.  Entries close Feb 13th or when full (limited entries available)!

SSPC will supply a selection hot and cold food at the concession stand. Please support this FUND RAISING ACTIVITY.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Jan & Peter
