Are there any? When and where? Definitely in a dead zone here, as far as I can figure out.

Have you looked at the SEDA website (Southern Eventing and Dressage Assn)?

http://www.sedariders.org/calendar.html

I also know that Lagniappe Farms (home of Fleur de Leap HT- formerly Watershed HT back in the day) in Folsom, LA just had some new lower level stuff built. Fleur de Leap/Watershed used to be a recognized event but hasn't been since Katrina; I think SEDA is trying to get things going there (just small stuff for now).
If you're looking for N Louisiana, check out Holly Hill's website:

In Little Rock, AR put on by pony club http://www.rackensack.ponyclub.org/

March 6th - schooling/combined test

May 9th - RBN and green as grass (May 8th is the regular horse trials)

I wish I had a horse trailer to get to these, maybe in a few years.

Does Alabama count?

There are a few new ones in the Birmingham area that are just getting started- check out www.dreamweaverstables.com and http://tricountydressage.webs.com. Birmingham Dressage & Combined Training www.BDCTA.com has 2 schooling shows, and links to as many other events on our calendar as we receive... All are low key and have very, very beginner levels :)

If you head this way- PM me, I am usually at most of the shows in one capacity or another!

Is Lagniappe Hildy McCarthy's place?

The Alabama shows look about my speed. How would I go about finding information on the CT weenie competitions? Although Alabama is a much longer haul than the other places, they look just about right for me. :)

Jane our PC has a "Learn to Event" event in April. http://www.mtn-ponyclub.org/mc/page.do?sitePageId=98298 I think the next weekend is Wolf Gap a Huntsville PC event. http://www.mtn-ponyclub.org/mc/page.do?sitePageId=98298

Both have really great little XC courses. I'm taking my youngster (I hope.) I think we are 3 hours from Memphis. You should come, your young'un can have a stall at my place...

Taking Marcy.

The trainer is going so slow with my youngun that it will be next year or very late this year before she and I will be ready to do ANYTHING, even pre-amoeba. This is good, because the horse is enjoying her work and learning and loving everything about it.

She has a barn name now--Roxanna (Rox), and it seems to fit her perfectly.

Yes chech out the SEDA site, I live in La and compete here a lot!! The Fleur Dis Leap is in April this year the prize list won't be out until late March for that one! It is just a combine test with a X-country schooling day on Sunday, but make sure you have a grounds person with you!!! You can compete in x-rails up to 3'9" I believe. We have tiny childern competing at this show all the time and very green horses too :) If you need any more information keep up with that site, we do schooling dressage shows and this weekend we have a jumper show that has an optional clear round jumpers (which means not times, basicly the easiest schooling around!!)

Here's a calendar

I've never been so I don't know what it's like. I'm planning on attending the March 6 show, hopefully it will be a good show to get us back into the swing of things after having several months off due mainly to crappy weather :)
