I couldn't wait to see who else is going!

I'm competing with my gelding in the ATC on a N Team: the Magic Beans! It's the first ATC for all of us and I am looking forward to a great time with other A2ARs!

I'm also bringing my yearling for the FEH championships! It will be his first overnight horseshow and all I hope for is that I'm not totally embarrassed :lol:

Looking forward to 4 days of horsey bliss! :D

Entry stats are in the process of being posted: http://vahorsetrials.com/pages/vht_fall_entry_stats.htm

Big thanks to Brian and Penny for all that they do!

I'm driving up from NC to go with the boys! It will be the super pony's first intermediate since his accident.. and the baby gets to do his 2nd prelim!

We should plan a little COTH party

I'm coming from Ohio! I am the lone Area 8 team member on an Area 2 Prelim ATC team- the Kick On team! I'm excited to do another ATC- we got to do the Central this year also. It's been two years since we rode at VA horse park but I remember how beautiful it was! I can't wait! Anyone find any good deals on hotels? Holy Cow they are expensive! And not close...

Looking forward to seeing many friends there - hope the weather is nice. This week has been beautiful so far.

I NEED A TEAM!
I bumped down to training level and so I'm an ATC orphan!

inquisitive and LisaB - have you let Penny know that you need a rider or a team? She might be able to match you up with others in the same situation. Worth a try, anyway.........

I think its parents weekend at W&L, so all the hotels and booked. I did find a room at a Days Inn for $175 per night :o. Luckily I'll be staying with a friend down there.

Try the Best Western, guys. Said they have a few open. Just got a very cheap ($70 night) room. Definitely not $175. Yikes. It's parents weekend and W&L so everything is jam-packed and pricey. I just got a room earlier today. I guess this is the time people will start to cancel un-needed rooms.

I'll be there running Training!

Can't believe two years ago was Owen's first event at Virginia HT at BN, feels good to have come so far!

I'm staying with my boyfriend in Lynchburg...rather the drive than the ridiculous hotel arrangements! Good luck to all those who still need to get rooms--but people DO cancel, I managed to get hotel rooms last year fairly last minute for reasonable, just keep checking on them as they start to open up again.

I'll be there trying training for the first time with my guy. I went BN last year, so I know how you feel hopashore1. This is probably my favorite event.

We should gather all the Connemaras together and get a picture for the Am. Conn. magazine! I'm sure they'd love to see all of them in action!

We would be game for that. We have the Bantry Bay Connemara's from Area 1. I send in updates frequently to the ACPS on line news. It would be cool to get a group picture to submit!

I'm taking my stallion to his first BN! I'm also showing two yearling fillies in the FEH. Should be a fun-filled weekend! :)
