It was a big weekend for eventing! While the FEI divisions at Richland Park, Blair Castle and Millstreet took the features spotlight, there were also a great lineup of local events across the country. Loudoun Hunt Pony Club H.T. hosted Beginner Novice through Intermediate divisions at the beautiful Oatlands Plantation. Intermediate winner Daniel Clasing pictured above. Eventing Nation would not be all that it is without these hometown events!
