CTDA’ s first recognized show of the year is approaching quickly!! Spring Fling at Old Hillsboro Manor is Saturday, May 2 and we need you to enter! This is a fun, low-key show and will give you a good start to the season. Click here for the prize list and additional information. You can also enter online at www.equestrianentries.com. Entries must be received by April 17.
Let’s put behind us those months that end in “ary” and look forward to some spring weather!
April 4 is the first CTDA schooling show at Walnut Trace. You can access the online entry form by clicking here . Absolute closing date is Saturday, March 28. These shows are very popular and everyone will be ready to get outside so get your entries in early! Once we fill the day, we cannot accept any more entries, even if it is before the closing date.
Then, it’s Spring Fling, our USDF recognized show at Old Hillsboro Manor in Franklin on May 2. It is a one day, one ring show so, again, you will want your entry in early! Prize list can be downloaded by clicking here. The judge is Charlotte Trentelman and she will be conducting an educational symposium the next day on the new 2015 tests. Watch for more news about that!!!!
You can get ready even in this wicked weather by at least putting the dates on your calendar and memorizing your tests. You can even start practicing in the living room (oh you know we’ve all done it!). Things that are new for this year are a schooling show cancellation policy (click here to view) and an increase to 8 volunteer hours required for Year End Awards.
