More news of the COVID-19 ripple effect continues to hammer the eventing community, and Twin Rivers Ranch is the latest to make a statement regarding changes to its schedule. Long has the West coast waited to add another CCI4*-L event to its calendar, and the excitement surrounding the inaugural CCI4*-L at Twin Rivers in Paso Robles, Ca. has been palpable.
Now in light of the most recent updates and recommendations in managing the spread of COVID-19, Twin Rivers has stated that it is in the process of postponing its April FEI and national event to, pending final approval, June 4-7:
“Since the statements from FEI and USEF on March 13 and USEA on March 14 regarding COVID-19, Twin Rivers CCI & HT is currently working through the process of postponing our event to June 4-7. We are awaiting final approval from FEI, USEF and USEA. We would offer the same levels as before, Advanced-Beg. Novice nationally and international levels of CCI4*L, CCI3*L, CCI2*L, CCI4*S, CCI3*S. We are offering two options to our competitors: you can ask for a refund less the office fee or you can have your entry remain for this postponed date. Please email Christina at [email protected] with your entry requests.
We are also cancelling the Fundraiser Combined Test on April 4-5, refunds less the office fee will be issued.
We are actively trying to do what is best for the health and safety of our competitors, staff, officials and volunteers at this point. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you and look forward to seeing you in June or another future event at Twin Rivers.
The Baxters & Staff”
We will continue to provide the latest updates on event schedules and/or cancellations — and you can find a rolling list of events and shows affected by the virus in this post.
As an additional piece of food for thought, it’s important to remember that event organizers are working tirelessly to come up with the best, most plausible solution for their show. Cancelling or even postponing a show has massive and potentially devastating effects for all involved, and there is no better time for us to stick together as a community and remember what matters the most. Thank you to all organizers, volunteers, officials, and everyone else involved with rolling with these punches!
