Area IV Midsouth Teams

Hagyard Midsouth Team Challenge is a destination event located at the Kentucky Horse Park in late October. It is a unique competition environment that attracts competitors from the Midwest as well as the East Coast.  Riders compete as a team as well as individuals. Each rider from a team is placed in a different division and will ride dressage under a different judge, in a different arena simultaneously with his/her team members. Team members will run cross country and show jump consecutively as well.  Hagyard Midsouth Team Challenge encourages stall decorations, matching fun team apparel and generates camaraderie.

Area IV Young Riders will select riders at BN, Novice, Training and Preliminary levels to represent Area IV at the Hagyard Midsouth Team Challenge.  Interested riders will be required to submit an application, 1 letter of reference and meet requirements described below in order to represent Area IV.  Application
