  • 2023: IEL Team, YR Update, Fall Event Wrapup

    From Chris Donovan, Area II Young Rider Coordinator/IEL Team Coordinator:

    A reminder that our new year starts December 1st, 2023, and our first activity is Winter WoW Eventing Camp at the Virginia Horse Center, Lexington, VA., from 12/27-30, 2023 (midweek). We have XC fences left out to use (weather permitting) and we will focus some of the lessons on riding terrain, in addition to our usual focus on dressage ring craft, and show jumping in the indoor arena. No worries about the weather -there is a 100% refund if we need to cancel due to winter storms. This camp is open to everyone! (Young Riders, Adults, etc.) All the details can be found on - key search word "WoW" - and please feel free to email with any questions. Here is the link:  
    Event/Teams Report:
    Virginia Horse Center Horse Trials was busy and exciting, with our YR members participating on IEL, Collegiate, and FEI teams. There were also Pony Club awards to the highest place PC'er in each division. The bonfire was moved from Friday to Saturday. The s'mores and stuffed potatoes were a great treat, and we are grateful that VHC hosted such a great party!  We are already looking forward to May, 2024 at VHC. You can find all the team results at:$t_IgmiFYtmMwn5GG_Q==
    There was a single award for the top Collegiate team - Virginia Tech Hokie Hustlers took home a nice set of boots for each of their horses.
    The top 4 Interscholastic Eventing League teams are listed below. The ribbons for these riders will be mailed out this week.
