Note from the President
Summer will officially be here in a few short days. It's time to ride, enjoy the great outdoors and participate in MVHC events!
This coming Sunday, June 25 is the first horse show of the season. Come compete, see friends and earn points for year-end awards.
This year there will be Hunter Show and Dressage Show year-end awards. So please join in the fun and see how you do.
Rumor has it that there will be a combined year-award series for those of you who do it all. More to come on that once I get all the details!
Rosa Murphy and Bella Thorpe were both invited to attend the Region 8 FEI YR Clinic
in Salisbury, CT. The were taught for two days by Olympian Sabine Schut Kerry and learned a lot. It was hosted at beautiful Weatogue Stables. Congratulations to both of them for being chosen to attend. It was a wonderful experience for all of the participants.
The first dressage show is on July 9th please mark it on your calendars and learn your tests. Everyone is welcome to join in so don't be shy if you ride western or just trail ride regularly, we would love to see you all there.
If you have some free time, the Hunter Show is still seeking volunteers. Please contact Sam Look if you can help!
