Just a couple of housekeeping notes as we approach the Fall season for everyone. Hopefully this weather will break soon, and we'll all get to start enjoying our horses instead of sweating through the rides!
1 - The NCDCTA is putting together a fundraiser for the members attending the American Eventing Championships in Georgia. This includes myself with Flash and Prophet. They are looking for donations of (new or used) goods and services to auction off. If you have anything you'd be interested in donating, please let me know. The auction will be running through August 30th. I'll be posting a link to it on the Facebook page and the website, so be on the lookout because there is some seriously good stuff that will be auctioned off!
2 - Website - will be undergoing some changes to get more up-to-date (finally!)
3 - C-HORSE APPAREL!!!! We have an awesome new logo, and we want to show it off! Go here to order your polos, saddle pads, jackets, T-Shirts and KOOZIES!!! If at all possible, we'd like orders in by the end of the week. http://www.chorseeventing.
4 - Fall Schedule - As always, this will be evolving, but here's a rough draft. If you'd like any help deciding the plan for you and your horse, or have any questions about which shows would be good for you, please just ask and we'll work it out together! For those of you competing Maiden, BN, and Novice, the Timex Series are marked below - you must be a NCDCTA member, and it's a fun little series to collect point in!
