It’s miserable enough out there in the sauna that is a mid-July horse trials, even without a face mask that makes it seem tenfold hotter. The Sunday forecast is showing highs of 84 for Genesee Valley Hunt H.T. (Geneseo, NY); a high of 90 for Maryland H.T. II at Loch Moy Farm; a high of 94 for the War Horse Event Series H.T. (Raeford, NC); and a high of 96 at Poplar Place in Hamilton, Georgia. 84 (Geneseo, NY). Champagne Run H.T. (Lexington, KY) endured a temp of near 90 on Saturday but looks to be getting a merciful reprieve today (well, if you call scattered thunderstorms and 80 degrees a reprieve?)
Summer temps + horse trials + face mask = I’m sweating just scrolling through your Instagram pics. I know it’s incredibly uncomfortable, but thank you for doing your part dutifully and without complaint, for the health of yourself and others, and for our sport.
A few of your mask pics from the weekend:
That’s #eventerstrong to the core. Go Eventing!
