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.
