    Default VaHT

    Now that we're a little closer.

    Who's going?

    Xing my fingers that the long term forecast for that weekend is correct - high of 61 for saturday and 64 on sunday! And clear.

    I'll be there, but only as a spectator. My friend was asked to photograph for the event, so I'll be tagging along to enjoy the scenery.

    Will you be riding? If so, what level are you competing at?

    I will be riding at CDCTA the following weekend...PLEASE rain, stay away.

    DH and I will be there as always - indoor and outdoor stadium stewards. We would rather x/c fence judge, but usually have to go out of state to get to do that Although we did get to fence judge at Morven in early October But last weekend at Paradise in Aiken we scribed, dressage stewarded, helped start and I actually was control on x/c day I had helped Jim Ligon several times in control, but had never been control all by myself. Thank goodness everything ran smoothly and that there were not any problems to speak of - don't know how I would have done in a crisis!

    Hoping to see many COTHers at VHT!

    The weather has to be an improvement on last year's when it snowed on this weekend. We were doing dressage through standing water when the snow melted. When I was there in March it was a monsoon and they cancelled XC.

    So have faith I won't be there this fall and the weather should be better.

    I was moving my horse up to prelim last year when it snowed! Luckily we'd already done our dressage, but I had to wait for it to melt before we went cross-country, which made for some tense moments.

    I'll be there on the other side of the horse center at the tb celebration show. Hope to come over and watch a bit. You guys could come watch the show too. It's by far the most fun I have ever had at a show. And we only pay $12 a class! No association fees, free stabling and lots of fun. My 6 class weekend will only cost me $72! And there are prizes for every placing.

    Come watch and consider it for next time!

    We're taking three for the N ATC. Was hoping to bring a fourth for the BN ATC, but he decided he'd rather tweak a tendon and stay at home on stall rest. Keeping our fingers crossed for no precipitation, solid or liquid.

    Eventgroupie2, Bloody Mary at 5PM on Saturday?

    I haven't heard of this! I'd love details, or perhaps a link?

    I'll be sure to cheer you all on!

    Here's the link: http://www.horseshowsonline.com/Docu...c-4de53f683df3

    The vouchers for free stabling are given out at other all TB shows prior to the Va show.

    Case and point I got vouchers in Maryland at the Mid Atlantic Horse rescue show in June for the June Va show. And last weekend I was given vouchers at the show at the NJ Horse Park for next weekend.

    Such a great show!!! They even play music during your rounds. ITS a BLAST!

    I will be in the 3'1 division and the 3'7" division.

    Also they have a Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/thoroughbred...tionhorseshows

    This will be mine (and my horse) 3rd event since we switched to Eventing from jumper world and my first time doing training.
    Really looking forwards to it! and hopefully meeting more people.
    Kind of bitter sweet since it's the last of the fall for us...debating whether to head down to Ocala or Aiken for a couple this winter (yes I am addicted

    The weather is supposed to be warmer (50s) and ALL SUNSHINE!
    Local weather says NO rain all weekend!

    We're excited because we're the photographers - last year's snow made for cool pics, but not fun for riders, horses or us!

    See you all there! Come for Halloween candy at the camper all weekend!

    From Eventing Nation's Facebook page: "We just spoke to Brian and Penny Ross about the status of the Virginia Horse Trials this weekend. We're pleased to report that Sandy had mercy on the grounds and everything is ON! Stay tuned to the blog for a more detailed update."

    I need a horse moved from Columbus, Ohio to Lexington, VA. If anyone might be able, I can meet up at the Va Horse Center. bergrbnch@aol.com
