A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who helped out throughout the day, some of you all day and some who stepped in when I needed you most! Forgive me if I fail to mention your name, it will come to me when I hit SEND! I get a bit brain dead after a show!
Steward Ginger Stueck manned the Dressage Warm up and kept everyone a little ahead all day long-a hard job well done! She also helped scribe after Meghan Markham and Judy Frappier who then rode their dressage tests!
Thanks to Samantha Garbarino and Shelley Peters who kept the Start Box moving so efficiently running riders at 2 instead of allocated 3 minute intervals! Thanks for Grace Guardo and Kim Dickman who kept the riders moving to the start box on time.
