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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Spring Bay will offer XC Schooling on Sunday at Masterson Station Park after the courses are cleared.
Riders will need to stop at the Show Office to sign a Release and pick up a Schooling pinney. We ask that you clear the courses by 5:30PM so that we can release our medical crews. Registration will begin at 2:15PM with the courses open at 3:15PM.
Please listen for announcements and check the course to make sure no rider in the event is still on course before you begin. We will cancel the Schooling only in the event of bad weather or poor footing. Please respect the fences and the property when you are riding. Notice regarding cancellation will be made via the website and posted at the MSP Show Office.
Spring Bay will offer Starter level for 2014, for those of you whose preparation plans have been disrupted by the brutal weather. This level will be conducted as a USEA Test. USEA rider membership is not required, and the USEA Starter fee $21 does not apply.
Entry fee $190
If you have already entered the event and wish to move to this level, please contact the secretary at email@example.com.
Dressage Test: 2011 USDF Introductory Test B
XC Speeds/Distance: 1400m-2000m, Opt 250 mpm, Speed Faults 350 mpm

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.
