March 22nd

Dear Riders, Competitors, Volunteers and Friends,

This wet winter surely can’t continue! Our lake is overflowing and our soil is good and wet but the hardy are still able to hack all over our property- I am no longer one of them! Thank you God for the well needed rain, please may we have a break!

USEA/USDF judge and TD Ana Schravesande, will be our Dressage Judge on Sunday and will run 30 minute Ride A Test lessons on Saturday. This gives riders a wonderful opportunity to find out what the judge is really looking for and drastically improve their score!

We will award beautiful Cotton Anti Sweat Coolers to the winners of any division with 6 riders or more! Ribbons 1-6 will be awarded in both Dressage and Horse Trial Divisions and also to those who forgot to pick up their ribbons at our February show after the rain started. Two riders, Marta Marks and Sharon Miesen both rode their Derby Course in the rain for the experience and had a great time doing so. Even though it had been raining for an hour or so the going was safe, they both told me.

Janet Taylor and Zarpazo Beat an all-time QRF Dressage Score Record with a Score of 19.6. Judge Ana said that she would have awarded that score had Janet ridden at any USEA/USDF Dressage class anywhere in America or Latin America, where she is frequently a Judge!

If you signed up for the February Derby you have a $25 discount towards our March HT.
We look forward to seeing you March 21, for Cross Country Schooling and RAT and on Sunday 22, for the Horse Trials!
If time permits we are willing to run Dressage Only. Preference will be given to those riding the Horse Trials.
Let us pray for good weather at the weekends during the Event season!

Go to our Events and Scores page for Entry Form and Release. Please send to Kathi Roof by March 14 to avoid LATE FEE! In order to serve you better entries will not be taken after Wednesday 18! Times will be posted on Friday 20th.
