APRIL SHOW PRIZE LIST IS HERE!!!
PLEASE HAVE STALL COUNTS IN BY SUNDAY BEFORE THE SHOW. LATE STALL ADDS AFTER SUNDAY PLEASE CALL 321-693-5551. We’re looking forward to a fun easy peasy June 1-2 show ….. For all those Mimosa fans, we’ll be scheduling the Mimosa Hunter Classic for the June 22-23 show. The Champagne is on ice!!!!
We apologize for not getting the points out yet, but Jeanne was making great headway and then didn’t survive the second buck, so now after one very broken shoulder and bruised ribs is working on them once again but a little slower. Denise has said she is going to help, thank goodness!! Glad to know Jeanne can always find work as a Human Projectile…..
JUMPER RIDERS!!! Please enter only those classes you think you are going to realistically go in and no more. It’s turned into a free for all at the gate adding and scratching and many riders are now pre-entering classes they have no intention of competing in because they fear being closed out of adds — thereby closing out others who want to show and can’t because our counts say we’re full. If we can’t improve this we’ll have to start charging a $2.00 scratch fee for jumper scratches. . .
CLASS COUNTS FOR EACH SHOW WILL BE POSTED AT HORSESHOWTIME.COM BY THE THURSDAY BEFORE THE SHOW
