Copper Adds March Event Date!
With the unfortunate loss of an excellent Area VI Event, the Event at 3-Day Ranch, Copper Meadows Eventing has been granted approval to run a horse trials on March 15 - 17, 2013.
The Copper Meadows HT will host A/I - Intro, with the possibility of adding an Advanced section if there is approval through the USEF Technical Committee.
The March date is an important marker in the Area VI calendar which was successfully filled by 3-Day Ranch for a number of years. Two weeks before Galway Downs' spring Event and three-day, the HT now at Copper Meadows will provide a preparation for riders looking to ready themselves for FEI competition at Galway, or gain one more qualifying score as they prepare for the upcoming FEI season.
James Atkinson, course designer at Copper, says of the future Advanced course, "It will be technical but not huge - a good prep for horses and riders looking to run the CIC 3* at Galway." Along with the addition of an Advanced track, the existing courses will be slightly changed for the 2013 season.
Copper Meadows Eventing is excited and honored to run this spring Event, and hopes that it will be useful for not just California riders, but also riders from surrounding states and barns wintering in California
Intermediate and Preliminary riders who place 1st through 5th at one Area VI Event are qualified to compete; Training, Novice and Beginner Novice riders who place 1st through 3rd at an Area VI Event are qualified to compete.
