It has been a much needed wet weekend here in California. The immense amount of rain has brought the Twin Rivers Horse Trials to an early close. Advanced, Intermediate and Preliminary divisions ran as a one day event on Thursday. The decision to not run cross country for the remaining divisions came early yesterday morning after two days of heavy rain. While some competitors withdrew after Dressage, the truly insane stayed to ride in the torrential downpour. The rain isn’t supposed to continue much longer, but will certainly leave us splashing about through some puddles for a few days. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to go ride in Dragonfire’s new Aquassage complex.
Events This Weekend:
Sarah Braun’s mare Perfect Intentions underwent colic surgery this weekend. Two years ago the pair went to the North American Junior Young Rider Championships and were part of the gold medal winning team. Sarah did have insurance to help cover part of the cost of colic surgery, but even still she is facing some significant vet bills. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with the costs. [GoFundMe]
