Pennsylvania National and Washington International Cancel and Relocate USEF and WIHS Championships

HarrisburgThe Board of Directors and show management teams for the Pennsylvania National Horse Show (PNHS) and Washington International Horse Show (WIHS) have made the difficult decision to cancel their previously announced 2020 events scheduled to be held in Tampa, Fla.

As multiple issues have evolved resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, WIHS found it impossible to successfully host the World Cup Washington for 2020.

While key partners including Longines and Mars Equestrian made every effort to support WIHS during this extremely challenging year in the newly proposed Tampa venue, as the event drew closer the barriers and risks were insurmountable.

PNHS simultaneously determined staging their qualifying hunter/jumper competition as planned was also not viable.

At this time, plans are being made to relocate the Hunter Seat Medal Finals, the Junior Jumper National Championships and the WIHS Championship Finals, pending USEF approval.

The event organizers and USEF are quickly coming together to evaluate options to move the USEF and WIHS year-end junior championship finals to a viable location pending final USEF approval including:

• Show Jumping Talent Search Finals-East
• Hunter Seat Medal Finals
• Junior Jumper National Championships
• WIHS Equitation Finals and WIHS Pony Equitation Finals
• WIHS Children’s and Adult Hunter and Jumper Finals

A decision will be announced on the final location no later than Wednesday, Aug. 19.

WIHS will host the Regional Washington International Horse Show (Regional WIHS) at Morven Park, Leesburg, Va., pending USEF approval and USHJA approval for Zone 3 Finals.

The prize list for this event will be issued in the coming weeks.

PNHS and WIHS are both dedicated to providing the safest and highest-quality competition environment for dedicated members, exhibitors, and their families.

All events will be spectator free.

The show organizers will continuously monitor the COVID-19 status and will adjust or amend shows based on the guidance from federal, state, and other public health officials.

Qualifying criteria, detailed schedules, and prize lists will be updated in the coming week.

For more information on these events, please visit www.panational.org and www.wihs.org.

Jr. Hunter National Championships and the Gladstone Cup Equitation Classic relocated to Michigan

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich.--Traverse City Horse Shows is the new host of the 2020 Adequan/USEF Junior Hunter National Championships East Coast from Aug. 23 - 25, 2020.

Jr. Htr ChThe 2020 Adequan/USEF Junior Hunter National Championships East Coast will be in Traverse City (Photo by Andrew Ryback Photography)In conjunction with US Equestrian, the decision was made to relocate the event from its previous home in Kentucky in order to avoid cancellation.

The United States Hunter Jumper Association Gladstone Cup Equitation Classic will coincide with the championships on these dates.

The extended three-day timeline of the championship will serve to reduce traffic, with Sunday and Monday featuring the hunter classes while Tuesday will showcase equitation in the USHJA Gladstone Cup Equitation Classic.

The Traverse City Horse Shows team will be making good use out of the two weeks they have between the end of the Great Lakes Equestrian Festival and the beginning of the Adequan/USEF Junior Hunter National Championships East Coast in order to prepare for participants and appropriately sanitize the venue prior to the start of competition.

Nations Cup Finals, Eventing Championships and more Kentucky Horse Parks competitions join the ever growing parade of cancellations

BARCELONA, Spain--Multiple cancellations continue, with the Nations Cup Finals in Barcelona and the American Eventing Championships being the lastest victims.

Nations Cup trophyNations Cup trophyAlso cancelled are the Bluegrass Festival, Aug. 11-16, KHJA, Aug. 19-23, and USEF Junior Hunter National Championship - East Coast, Aug. 23-24, scheduled to take place at the Kentucky Horse Park.

The cancellation of the Nations Cup Final in Barcelona was a joint-decision taken by the International Equestrian Federation, the Spanish National Federation and the Foundation and Board of the Real Club de Polo de Barcelona, longtime host of the Final.

The Barcelona Final was scheduled to be held from Oct. 2-4.

“We have looked at every scenario, including potentially running the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup Final behind closed doors without spectators, but the combination of the situation in Catalonia and the ongoing international travel restrictions has meant that we have unfortunately been forced to jointly agree that regrettably this year’s Final cannot go ahead in Barcelona, the risks are simply too great”, FEI President Ingmar De Vos said.

“When we announced changes to the rules for the Final back in April, we were cautiously optimistic that even if the series fell victim to the pandemic, we would be able to save the Final in Barcelona, but sadly that has proved impossible.

The uncertainty of COVID-19 pandemic prevented competitions from safely moving forward.

LEXINGTON, Ky--Two more individuals have tested positive for COVID-19, after attending the Kentucky Summer Classic, for a total of four reported cases.

Ky.Horse ParkKentucky Horse ParkUS Equestrian and Kentucky Horse Shows prioritize the safety of our members, participants, support teams, staff and their families, so to mitigate the risk of spread of the virus, USEF and the competition organizer together have made the decision to cancel the Kentucky Summer Classic effective at the end of competition today and to cancel the USEF Pony Finals event scheduled to start Tuesday, Aug. 4.

These cancellations will give the competition organizer time to sanitize the venue and determine whether competition can resume later this month.

With regard to the new reports, one individual worked in Barns 9 & 10 with one of the previously reported individuals.

Both of these individuals have been off competition grounds since Friday, July 31.

The other newly reported individual is a braider who worked in multiple barns and has been off the grounds since early this morning.

Per the requirements of the USEF COVID-19 Action Plan, we are notifying all individuals who were in attendance at the competition.

Although contact tracing is primarily the responsibility of public health agencies, in accordance with CDC guidelines we are asking these individuals for the names of others at the competition that they had close contact with starting from 48 hours before their symptoms appeared so that we can inform those persons directly that they may have been exposed to the virus.

GreenMount Farm’s Bernardini filly named 2020 Champion at MHBA Yearling Show

 TIMONIUM, Md.--GreenMount Farm’s filly by Bernardini out of Mystic Love, by Not For Love, outshined the competition as judge Michael Matz selected her as grand champion of the 86th annual Maryland Horse Breeders Association’s Yearling Show, held Sunday, July 19 at the Timonium Fairgrounds horse show ring in Timonium, Md.

MHBA ChampionThe champion of the 2020 Maryland Horse Breeders Association Yearling Show: A Bernardini filly out of Mystic LoveBred by GreenMount Farm in partnership with Godolphin, the champion filly was the winner of Class IV (for fillies foaled in Maryland, by out-of-state sires).

She was shown by Sabrina Moore, manager and co-owner of GreenMount.

“I had a good feeling about her, I mean I think she’s really nice, but until you get there and see how nice all the other horses are you don’t know,” said Moore. “It’s surreal, but I count my blessings, I know it doesn’t happen all the time. Knowing the people that are genuinely happy for you, that’s probably the best part of it.

“I love the show because they get out and you kind of get a feel for them, what they’re going to be like as soon as you get them off the farm and they [get to] school a little bit. I just think the yearling show is really key for them and I was glad to get her there.”

Capital Challene showgroundsCapital Challenge showgrounds“Prince George’s Equestrian Center has been our home for the past 26 years, and we’re looking forward to welcoming exhibitors there again this fall,” said show manager Oliver Kennedy. “In order to do that, we are working closely with both the facilities team at Prince George’s and with local and state government officials on protocols and guidelines that will allow us to host a safe competition.

Devon Fall Classic cancelled

DEVON, Pa.--The Devon Horse Show and Country Fair has announced the cancellation of the 2020 Devon Fall Classic, which was to be held September 10-13, 2020.

Devon Fall Classic flowersThe Devon Fall Classic is a 4-day jumping competition and fall festival held on the historic DHSCF grounds.

The annual event benefits the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair Foundation.

Wayne W. Grafton, Devon Chairman and CEO, explained that the decision to cancel was made based upon "the lack of regulatory guidelines within an adequate time frame in order to plan and execute the event."

Grafton added that the organization "is very disappointed given the cancellation of the May DHSCF, but we are focused on the safety and well-being of our competitors, volunteers and spectators, as well as the overall community.

We are putting all our efforts into planning the 125th Anniversary Devon Horse Show and Country Fair, to be held May 27-June 6, 2021."

The Devon Fall Classic is expected to return in September 2021. For more information, please visit www.devonhorseshow.net.

Plantation Field successfully opens Event season in the age of Covid-19

UNIONVILLE, Pa.--Plantation Field reopened Eventing  on June 7-8 after almost three months of all events being shut down due to Covid-19.

This past weekend saw competitors returning to the field of play at three events across the country: River Glen in New Market, Tenn.; Feather Creek in Norman, Okla.; and Plantation Field in Unionville.

The USEA was on the ground at Plantation Field on Friday to observe the joy and excitement of the first day back competing since mid-March.

Plantation Field offered Beginner Novice through Intermediate levels with Intermediate, Preliminary, and Open Training all running as one-day events on Friday and the remaining Training divisions, Novice, and Beginner Novice following suit on Saturday.

From contactless packet pick-up and temperature checks at the entrance to drive-thru fence judge orientation, there were plenty of changes to be seen around the event designed to keep competitors, staff, and volunteers safe.

“We knew we had to get this right and we had to do it in a way that people outside the eventing world could see that this is a no-contact sport where we can maintain social distance,” said Mary Coldren, Plantation Field’s event organizer. “It was important to us to show that this can be done in a way that follows CDC guidelines and hopefully it will benefit other events for the rest of the season. I sent an email to the competitors last week that said, ‘All eyes are on us. This will not look like pictures you see at the beach. We are going to wear masks and we are going to social distance. We’re going to do this right.’”

Coldren said it came down to the wire as far as gaining approval to run, as Pennsylvania only entered “Phase Yellow” on Friday – the stay-at-home orders for Chester County extended through Thursday night.

“We didn’t get permission until 8:45 p.m. on Monday night,” she said. “All along, no one would say, ‘yes,’ but no one said, ‘no’ either. That was one of the hard parts – are we or aren’t we, maybe we can, maybe we can’t? Two weeks ago, I thought we had no chance. We rolled the dice and got set up and got lucky that it worked out!”

Coldren noted that special thanks was due to Denis Glaccum, President of Plantation Field Equestrian Events, Inc., for making sure the event got the go-ahead to take place.

“He really deserves the credit for having a positive attitude and making the presentation that got us the permission to run. I was doubtful, but he never gave up!”

Century Ride Takes Place in Landenberg, PA

Sent in by Susan and Mary Jane Arden

LANDENBERG. Pa.--Paula Berkebile of Landenberg was looking forward to her birthday with particular excitement.

Paula ThorPaula Berkebile and ThorShe knew that when she reached age 75, she and her 26-year-old, three-fourths Arabian gelding, Thor, would be eligible to participate in the Century Ride.

The Dressage Foundation, which sponsors this event, stipulates that in this pinnacle event for horse and rider, their combined ages equal at least 100 years.

Paula came to riding as an adult and was self-taught until she began formal lessons when she was in her 50s.

Before discovering dressage, she showed hunter pleasure, did extensive trail riding and she even dabbled in team penning!

But it was dressage that captivated her.

As for Thor, he, too has an interesting resume.

The diminutive and dapper gray gelding had been a child’s 4H hunter, a lesson pony and for several years a lovely pasture ornament.

When Paula’s purebred Arabian, Breeze, started exhibiting signs of Cushings she was afraid her dreams of doing the Century Ride were over.

That was, until a good friend and riding instructor offered her Thor as a permanent lease five years ago.

In Paula’s own words, “ On our first ride he put his nose in the air and only stopped when I headed for a fence. But thanks to several wonderful instructors, he learned how to carry himself and stop when asked."

Kelley Farmer and Brian Moggre win at Tryon International

MILL SPRING, N.C.--Kelley Farmer of Keswick, Va., rode In Writing to win the $50,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby, the marquis hunter class of the Tryon Riding & Hunt Club Charity Horse Show at Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC),on June 5 with a first round on a score of 186.

Kelley Farmer on In WritingKelley Farmer on In Writing (Photo by ©TIEC)Due to weather forcing competition to halt, her first-round score was enough to take the win.

Second placed Aaron Vale on Iwan, scored of 182, while Jennifer Alfano rode Channing to place third on a score of 169.

Farmer navigated the Lewis Pack designed course alongside 21 other horse-and-rider pairs, and added four points for high options.

“The course was lovely, and I have to say, I’ve got to brag on my horse a little bit. I have an incredible animal, which makes my life really easy,” Farmer said. “The first three jumps were nice, and kind of got you into the course, and for the fourth to fifth bending line you had to have a horse with a bit of scope to jump the high option. But, I know my horse has all the ability in the world, so I never really worry with him - it’s a nice problem to have - when I walk a course, I know that pretty much anything they can build, he can do it.”
