ANNOUNCEMENTS / EVENTS
!!! OFFICERS NEEDED FOR NEXT YEAR !!!
Please consider volunteering for the President or Treasurer officer position beginning next year!!! We will be in need of those officers since Ted and Lori will be stepping down at the end of the year. We do not want to see the group disbanded and the shows shut down for lack of officers!! Please contact Ted or Lori for more details and information. Thanks for considering these positions, or feel free to suggest anyone who might be interested!
Clarification on Friday night trail classes. These will run as an open card. Any rider in any trail class can show between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Check in with show management before 8 p.m. You will have to check in at the gate before 8 p.m. to ride in trail. The classes will run at the same time, concurrently and in the order as come to the gate. For example, if you wanted to show in amateur and open trail, you will check in at the gate, and you could ride in both classes back to back. We will notify the judge as to what class you are riding in as you go in to ride the trail pattern.
Warm-up will be allowed in the arena until trail classes begin, and allowed afterwards until 9 p.m. Please pick up the trail pattern from management and walk the pattern without your horse before showing.
Betsy Gouedy is the show coordinator and she will be organizing the volunteer hours for workers for the shows. Remember, a minimum of two (2) hours must be worked by the exhibitor or designated representative to be eligible for year-end awards. This will be enforced and please volunteer early in the show season to ensure that all shows are covered.
