Mini Mock Trial Coming Up!

posted Aug 23, 2015, 10:48 AM by Keeneland Ponyclub

Mark your calendars for October 11th! Keeneland Pony Club will be holding a Mini Mock Trial on that day at Masterson Station Park for D1s and D2s to learn the ropes of eventing--dressage, cross country, and stadium jumping. Members can ride at any level they feel comfortable and will be paired with an upper level club member for assistance. Dressage tests can be memorized or read. FUN and safety are the goals. 

D3s will be stadium course designers and in charge of awards. Cs and up will be paired with a D1 or D2. 

This will be an all day event, so plan to pack a picnic lunch. 
For questions contact Cammie at halcyonfarm1@gmail.com
