April Update: CDCTA and Schedule for 2022

CDCTA Horse Trials, Apr. 9-10, 2022

From Chris: It was a cold and windy day.  With fresh horses, there were very few dressage scores in the 20's.   For those not used to Show Jumping on grass, we saw lots of rails and some time faults.  BN Jr had a 4 way tie for 4th that was broken on who was closest to Optimum Time XC. Good experience maintaining the appropriate pace. Overall, we had 20 Area 2 Young Rider program entries. Below are the medal results. (Medals will be mailed.)

Our next activities are at Waredaca.There will be an IEL team competition at Waredaca as well as Achievement Awards.  If you have not submitted your Affiliate forms for IEL - please do it asap. As a reminder, all program riders  of high school age, who are not on someone else's roster, will be on the Area 2 YR Program Member roster. 

What else is on the schedule? See the 2022 Schedule (uploaded pdf "A 2 YRP SCHEDULE 2022" above left in the YR Documents folder)
Note that E21 and WoW are scheduled in July just before PC Championships.  Entry forms and other details are forthcoming.

March Update: Aiken Invasion

It was lovely weather in AIken.  No need for the woodstove in the show office.  The week of competing and lessons wrapped up with an IEL Challenge at Sporting Days.There were 10 teams! Full Moon Farm finished 3rd and the Area 2 YR Program Riders finished up 4th. Our next activity is CDCTA Spring HT (Berryville, VA) in April.  We will give Merit Awards based on scores.  Area II's "Behind the Scenes" program will kick off 2022 at CDCTA as well. These activities are how we familiarize kids with the operation of horse trials, and all the details needed by officials to provide a fair and competitive sport. Opportunities will be offered for those interested and ask to be mentored -- It is a great opportunity to learn what the dressage judge really thinks, and understand what the course designers do. Contact Chris if you would like to be included.
