Just saw that they are still taking entries.

My horse has 4 shoes on (no guarantee of that when I have to enter a month out . . . ), just got my truck fixed, it isn't supposed to be insanely hot.

But does anyone know how the ground is up there?
I am in VA, where it is rock hard, but I think MD might have gotten more rain than we have?

I'm like a half an hour away. It's hard here, but I think you're probably right that it's not quite as hard as VA. They tend not to mow it quite as short as some of the other events, too, which makes it less slick. And there's a chance of thunderstorms a couple of days this week :)

Better than it was a month ago! We have a chance of some rain today too. It's hard, but not insanely so. Come and join us!

Thanks for the info!
It does seem like quite a few chances for rain in the next few nights, though now the forecast temp is creeping up a little.

I love Olney! If my horse were ready I'd be going. It's a small event, but super friendly and nice courses.

Thanks! I wimped out, due to changing forecasts and a long trailer ride, but wish everyone good luck!
