    The “In-barn” inspection is mandatory and must be done with a vet present to ensure your horse has arrived with no temperature or other symptoms of shipping fever. Your horse must be presented to the vet before your horse enters the stables and the vet will talk to you about your horses’ history, issues and what blemishes they might have which should be considered normal for your horse. They will take the horses’ temperature, pulse and respiration and could possibly be asked to jog. The vets will be set up in the stabling area and we ask you have your horse seen by them BEFORE you go to your stall. If you are unable to arrive within the outlines timeframe, please call me so we can make arrangements for the vets to meet you when you do arrive.

    WHERE are you???? I love it. Funny thing is that my husband and I, both low level riders (he has since stopped competing though) have suggested N and BN 3-days for YEARS. Only to be poo-hooed by many of the pros and upper level riders as either unnecessary or as dangerous!! If we had enough cross country fences on our property we have talked for years about having BN and N schooling 3 days.

    I was thrilled to see the Novice 3-day offered at a show this fall/late summer!

    Unfortunately you are prob too far from OK for us, and we aren't fit :-(

    But I sure hope others start offering these. I really want to do a 3-day of some sort but at my age and with my crazy work schedule there is no way I will ever be able to a Trn 3-day. So a N/BN would be wonderfull!!!

    I am excited!

    Quick search for "Southern Eighths Farm" (mentioned a few times in the OP's info statement) shows they're in South Carolina. Here's the classic format info page:

    Looks like fun - I hope it goes well!
