Sundance Horse Trials is accepting late entries - AND NO LATE FEE if you enter before Sept. 16th! If you are letting the prospect of trailering separately to cross country stop you from coming, you'll be missing a beautiful course! And just to clarify, there's only one trailer trip with the horse on Sunday, only 4 miles way! You can head home straight from cross country. Check out the Area IV Facebook page for more pictures of our new cross country jumps! And please enter our event and enjoy this gorgeous course in the Kettle Moraine! We've got rolling hills, wooded lanes, open fields, and beautiful fences! See you there!!

Kristine Burgess shares the conditioning schedule for her horse BFF Tiara that got them ready for NAJYRC! Thank you for sharing Kristine! "It was tough sometimes to stick to this calendar as school, weather and friends are always tempting you to do something different. However, after finishing the 8 minute CCI 1* course at NAJYRC with no jump penalties, I was thankful to Becky for prepping us for this event!"

All four riders from Area IV (Elena Hengel, Kristine Burgess, Hannah Stohr, and Rebecca Gall) broke into the top half of the leaderboard today. Rebecca Gall of Saukville, Wisconsin leads the team aboard her own 12-year-old Thoroughbred gelding Can Ya Dig It. The pair finished the day with a 50.2, ranking them in 8th individually - the strongest showing for an Area IV CCI* Team in at least the past 5 years of the NAJYRC. They lead Area V in second place and Area II in third.

Area IV eventers have heard about syndication, but it seems rather a foreign world, or something outside of our area, at least. In the interest of providing education, we’re posting this article from Lisa Borgia that explains syndication as it applies to one of our most famous (former) Area IV eventers and an Area IV horse. Hopefully this will answer some questions for some of you, and possibly intrigue others. If you want to know more, Lisa’s contact information is at the bottom of the article.
