Spring Bay is filling, but we know that some of you have waited to see if you had time to get your horses ready this spring. So we have decided to accept late entries for a short period after Close, Mar 22.
Spring Bay will accept entries that arrive Wed, Mar 23-Sat, Mar 26. The late fee as listed in the Omnibus will apply, and only complete entries will be accepted.
All dressage and stadium will take place on Saturday at the Kentucky Horse Park. All XC will take place Sunday at Masterson Station Park. Stabling will be at the KY Horse Park.
There are two cross-country courses at Masterson Station Park. We will run the P/T (Track One) and N/BN (Track Two) concurrently on Sunday.

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 different Schooling pinney. We ask that you clear the courses by 5:30PM so that we can release our medical crews. Registration will begin at 2:00PM with the P/T course open at 2:30PM, N/BN course open at 3:30PM.
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.
Fee (payable to Spring Bay HT): Competitors $30, Non-competitors $35

Many of our spectators are new to the sport of Eventing, and we want them to know you as more than just a number.
Is your horse an off-the-track-Thoroughbred? Is this your first or your horse’s first event? Is this a new horse, or perhaps your first Training Level event together? Maybe it is your birthday, or you are really proud of something you and your horse have accomplished this year. We want to know about your profession, your school/college, spouse/children, etc.
Please email some background information to our announcer Cyndi Kurth. Please complete these no later than Tue, Apr 5. This info will not be shared with anyone else!
