Forget snow at the Virginia Horse Trials. Saturday was balmy and warm in Virginia compared to New Jersey. Despite heavy snow the organizers ran dressage and show jumping all day on Saturday. The event was canceled on Sunday so it became a combined test to most of the pairs. I never cease to be amazed by the toughness and resiliency of eventers. As tough as our sport can be, nothing can keep us away. [ESDCTA Results]
