It was a soggy Sunday in Aiken this weekend for Full Gallop Farm’s January HT. Despite the weather, it was great to be back and see the hard work that Lara Anderson and her team have implemented! It is a great venue, so if you’re in the area stop by and ride or volunteer. They are still accepting entries and volunteers for their February I HT next week. Learn more on their website.
