All Adult Riders,
Gearing up for the Area VII Team Challenge at Inavale. It’s not too late to get in on the fun. Signup sheets are at Inavale and will be out by the packet pick up. Sign up, pay and add a name for your team. Please don’t assume that I have you on a team- check the sheets.Each team can have only one pro (Except Int- anything goes) Int and BN desperately need teams. Must be at least 2 teams for a prize! Folks from other areas and Canadians are welcome to play but need to be members of their respective AR organizations.
If you paid with your entry please just note that on the signup sheets.
As an added incentive (as if team fun wasn’t enough) there is a long list of prizes (contact Maggie for full details).
Huge thanks to member Ashly Colonel for all her hard work getting great sponsors.
Friday night Adult Riders will have a catered cocktail party for all teamies- location to be announced.
Don’t forget to offer to volunteer – any hour or two will be most appreciated by Caroline and Luigi- remember to keep track of your hours for the volunteer awards drawing at the end of the year.
I will have our lovely t shirts for sale. $15 each.
Not an Adult Rider member yet? It’s not too late, you can join at the event (contact Maggie)
See you there- stay cool!

The USEA and Area VII is very sad to share that Calvin, owned and ridden by Holly Severijn of Woodinville, Wash., was euthanized at Aspen Farm Horse Trials this Sunday. Holly and Calvin were competing in the Training Rider division and were on cross-country when Calvin fell at Fence 12, a log jump out of the water. He got to his feet but it was evident that there was trauma to the shoulder area and the vet team led by Dr. Karen Nyrop advised euthanasia.
Calvin was a 17-year-old Thoroughbred gelding by Pioneering and out of Te Awa. Area VII sends its deepest condolences to Holly and all of Calvin’s connections.
