We regret to announce that the January derby is canceled altogether. Next weekend's forecast looks frigid and with another chance for substantial snow, and we made the decision with equine and rider safety at the forefront.
Refunds will be issued to all participants, less the $10 office fee to help cover the cost of ring preparation and entry administration. If you paid by means other than Compete Easy (such as standalone Paypal, volunteer or gift certificates), please email us; Carolyn will process those refunds individually.
SCHOOLING: The next three days promise dry and "warm" weather. The course is set and the footing has been maintained daily. If you'd like to come school this week, please text or call Carolyn at 301-514-0111 to make an appointment. No "walk-ins" are accepted. All riders must have an appointment.
The current course will remain set for several weeks at minimum, so keep an eye on the weather and make an appointment to school when you have a chance.
POP-UP DERBY: If there is a steady warming trend before March that coincides with a weekend, we'll run a "pop-up derby." Entries will be open for just a few short days, and only one day of competition may be offered. Keep an eye on facebook and our website for the latest news!
Stay safe and stay warm. We look forward to seeing everyone in March!
