CBF fall USEA horse trials photo montage!

The second-annual fall CBF USEA-recognized horse trials was a huge success this year! We were fully subscribed with entries, lucked out with fantastic weather, and everyone had a smile on their face at the end of the day.

We're already looking ahead to 2012 and thinking about what worked this year and what can be improved for the future. Our number one priority for our next competition will be to improve the footing in our grass show jumping field to make it firmer and hold up better under heavy use. We'll be sure to keep you updated on this and other improvements and additions to the plan for our third-annual recognized horse trials, tentatively scheduled for October, 2012.

For now, enjoy these photos of the day, courtesy of our own Lauren Murphy, Janet Sinclair, and Rica Trujillo…

Don't forget to have your bit checked!

Our intrepid secretary, Erin.
She returned for a repeat performance this year, so she must like us at least a little bit!
