In other news, we have elected to cancel the Pines Hunter Classic until the August 12th show, BUT we have ordered a cooler for the winner and hope to add more prize money! It is intended to be finals prep for CHSA & CHJA Finals and is open to all juniors and amateurs. The August 12th show will feature equitation finals prep in both rings, including but not limited to: verticals for the Short and Long Stirrup divisions, as well as extra testing in the flat and pleasure classes.
