Hunter/Jumper Show info and some date changes

Below is a link the Hunter/Jumper Show entry. Please note Catherine is now the secretary for these shows, not Pam, so direct any and all questions to her.

Many of you know how hard it is to find show dates. We have to schedule around horse trials, dressage, and hunter/jumper shows in three states. Sometimes, as well as we try to plan, a wrench gets thrown in.

This year’s wrench is the rescheduling of a recognized dressage show in Santa Fe from August to July… specifically to the weekend in July that we were planning on having our dressage show. As the secretary and manager, as well as many of our regular dressage people, plan to be at that show having one at home just isn’t going to work. We’re rescheduling that show to August 21st. Unfortunately, this means we won’t have jumping and dressage shows back to back and can’t have a Combined Test this year. We apologize to those of you who were looking forward to it. Alas, the scheduling gods…
