Don’t forget to wear green!
Hello EN, I hope your St. Patrick’s day has started off on the right foot. Your morning is probably already going better than that of those who attended last night’s USEF fundraising gala in Aiken- I’m sure photos of the shenanigans will end up on here eventually so be on the lookout. There are three events going down this weekend and the Event at Three Day Ranch in CA started yesterday. Mackenna Shea leads the AI with Landioso followed by Bunnie Sexton and Rise Against. Julie Ann Boyer and Rumor Hazit are winning the Intermediate, while Brynn Muechel leads the JYOP. Cross country starts bright and early at 8:30. Good luck to all competitors. [Live Scores]
Do you like to win?! There are a couple of contests that are worth a click- one is EN’s very own Success saddle pad contest. All you have to do is submit a photo spelling out “Success” in a creative manner and the chinchillas that be will choose two lucky winners. The deadline for entries 4/1 at 12AM EST. [Success Contest]
The next contest comes from Practical Horseman: submit your contact information and you are entered to win a grand prize four day riding expedition, touring the Irish Castles and Monastic Ruins Trails in Galway, Ireland, and spending your nights at local bed and breakfasts along the way. Second place receives a pair of Dubarry Galway boots, and third place a Troxel Venture Performance helmet. In honor of St. Patrick, send in your entry (or don’t, so that I have a better chance of winning). [Practical Horseman]
Sad news from England: rest in peace Westwood Poser. EN sends condolences to Polly and all others involved with “Mossie.”
