Sandy Sessink will be officiating the Morgans, Friesians, and Hunter and Western Equitation.  Both judges will handle Opportunity and open classes.

Ann Genovese and Amy McElroy will handle the Dressage events in the Dressage Arena on Friday.  Western Dressage will be handled as an Opportunity Class, allowing exhibitors to participate without requiring USEF or WDAA Dressage Cards, if these and other classes entered are Opportunity Classes.

Once again we will have our Welcome Party at Mary and Charlie Brannon's,  Willowick Farm. The Exhibitors Party will again be held Friday Night at the Cherokee Run Golf Club on Friday.

All exhibitors will receive a memento of their participation in the show and will be eligible in daily drawings each evening.

A tentative Time Schedule, Tentative Prize List, and Entry Blanks  are already on the web site, .  The Prize list will be mailed shortly, we had changes to make as a result of new rules in two of our divisions.
