SVF Horse Shows - June Recap/October News

I tried to post this a week or so ago.  Not an excuse... I know it's late.  But something wouldn't let me actually post.

June Show Recap

The first ever Serenity Valley Farm Horse Show went beautifully!  66 Dressage rides, 8 Prix Caprilli rides, 47 Combined Tests and a number of jumper rides.  We started with the first ride at 8am and we finished a bit after 5pm.  AND the weather held off!  According to a friend, the satelite had storms popping up all around us all day, but it wasn't until the very last few items were heading to the storage building that the skies opened up and drenched the couple of us that were left.  I'm so happy it waited!  And it seems that everyone who came enjoyed themselves.  Congratulations to all our division winners:

October Show News

Now that we've had a slight breather, we're starting to pull things together for the show on October 12th.  Not much news at this point but there are a couple items:

1- We will be modifying the jumper class offerings.  Final classes are yet to be determined but there will be at least 1 jumper class at each CT level in addition to the Low and High Gambler's Choice.

2 - In addition to adding a CCI* CT division (for those looking for practice for the fall CCI*s), we will also be adding a T3DE CT division for anyone who may be competing in the T3DE the following weekend at MidSouth.  Dressage tests will be the same as for what MidSouth has posted so it will be a great way to practice that "different" dressage test and get some feedback.

3 - All our CT divisions will be giving a portion of entry fees to a fundraiser for local eventer Kristen Distl who was paralyzed in a riding accident late last year.  The details are still be worked out but the plan is that there will be a raffle of horse and non-horse items at a catered dinner on the show grounds immediately following the last ride of the show.  Items already donated include clinic entry and lessons.  You won't want to miss this AND you can help a great fundraiser!  Stay tuned for more details.  If you wish to make a donation to the raffle, please contact me and I can put you in touch with the right people.
