Early Morning Blues
August 4th & 5th
A special thanks to our competitors who pitched in to save shavings and move horses when 2 barns flooded due to torrential rains on Friday afternoon. Then the sun came out and it was a beautiful evening!
Obviously the footing was fantastic! But, believe it or not by Saturday afternoon we had to water to keep the dust down!
It was a very enjoyable weekend with happy horses and riders. Lots of laughing and smiles. Thank you all for being such great competitors.

Is your horse a Dutch Warmblood?
The KWPN of North American offers a high score award to horses registered with the association.
The criteria for this award is that the horse has to be in the owner's name with the KWPN-NA and that the owner of record

Is your horse a Danish Warmblood?

The criteria is the horse and owner must be a member of NADWA.
In order to have a more level playing field with the
Hanoverian, KWPN and Danish Warmblood high score awards we are instituting a
method successfully used by the Pony Cup people. This system adds points to the
final percentage score based on the level and test ridden.
You can view this chart at http://www.dressageponycup.com/degree-of-difficulty.html
(This system didn't work. Back to the old tried & true - high score is high score!)
This show is a partner in the National Dressage Pony Cup Series
