Hagyard Midsouth 3Day & Team Challenge HT has been blessed with yet another record entry. We have wait lists for all horse trials levels, and are very close to full in all 3 levels of the 3Day!
Since your entries will be wait listed we have asked XEntry to stop accepting credit card payments on your behalf. Otherwise your funds would have been committed for a long interval with the possibility that we would need to refund you after the event.
We realize this is inconvenient for the last minute 3Day entries who wish to postmark at Close today, Sep 16. If you plan to enter those levels today, please email the secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org with your rider/horse/3day division info, then get that entry in the mail! Thanks! 0 comments | Post comment
Flying Cross Farm will offer Cross-Country Course Walks both Friday and Saturday as a fundraiser to benefit our great friend Nadeem Noon. Nad has been stricken with a very serious illness and we hope to be able to assist with his ongoing medical expenses.
A suggested donation of $25 or more will be send to the Equestrian Aid Foundation on his behalf. Listen to announcements or check at the show office for details on the times and where to meet.
The walks will be led by many of our upper level riders, including Cathy Jones Forsberg, Dorothy Crowell, Cathy Wieschhoff and others. 0 comments | Post comment

We still need volunteers for next weekend. We certainly will need more jump crew for stadium on Saturday, with two rings running most of the day. We also need somebody for Bit Check afternoon shift Saturday. Please poll your group and find us some willing hands to help out!
You can contact us through the website, or you can email our Volunteer Coordinator Amy Miller directly at email@example.com

The Kentucky Horse Park has initiated a new fee for non-stabled horses, which will replace the requirement for trailer parking passes.
Each non-stabled horse will be charged a facility fee of $30. This fee will be collected by the event and included on the event invoice from the KHP. Please add this fee to your total if you plan to work from your trailer rather than booking a stall.
There are several rule changes to note for the upcoming season. Please take time well ahead of your event Opening Dates to apply for the new membership and registration numbers now required.
Effective December 1, 2013:
USEA requires that all competitors, including foreign competitors, be members of the USEA in order to compete at USEA-recognized competitions at the Novice level and above.
In addition, all horses including foreign horses must be registered with the USEA with Full or Limited registration status at the Novice level and above. There will be no exceptions.
All Beginner Novice riders must have a USEA ID number. ID numbers do not require membership and can be created by going to the USEA home page and clicking on Online Services. Click “New User?” to create profile. If you choose to remain a non-member with ID only, you will need to submit the USEA nonmember fee with your entry.
All horses competing at the Beginner Novice level must be registered with at least a Restricted status. There is no cost to register a horse at Restricted status, but the owner or rider must have a USEA ID number to register the horse.
In summary, every entry must contain USEA numbers for both horse and rider, and may also require BN rider nonmember fee if applicable.
The starter fees for all national and FEI competitions will now be $21. This includes an increase of $1.00 per starter levied on all starters to generate funds for equine research.
