Changes. They are a-coming. Among them, of course, are the new FEI categorizations for levels and we’re going to have to start getting used to them ASAP. Great Meadow International actually just announced that, in addition to a date change from early July to late August, they are adding some additional levels so this is a perfect time to practice using the new designations!

Here we go: In addition to their existing four-star (I know, that sounds super weird doesn’t it?), a CCI4*-S (formerly CIC3*), Great Meadow is adding a CCI3*-S (formerly CIC2*) and CCI2*-S (formerly CIC1*). The change to the later date in August will make it a good prep event for the fall CCI-L (formerly just CCI) season.

Hang in there guys. We’ll make it through this and get used to the new norm together.
