This is not meant to raise alarm - just awareness. Please be aware of the health of yourself and your horses, and minimize the spreading of contagious germs for both people and horses. Competitions can be a very stressful event for both members of the competition and so it is important to be mindful to prevent spreading germs while traveling. Pay attention to your horses behavior and monitor their vitals to identify if they may be developing an illness or something that would be better to stay at home and not spread it to others. Please use dipping buckets where there is open shared water, minimize physical contact with horses outside your barn and wash hands often to prevent spreading germs. Good luck to everyone and have a safe and enjoyable competition season.

Meet Cindi Carrell and Rick Resto, Area VII’s Volunteers of the Year in both 2017 and 2018. Rick and Cindi each logged well in excess of 100 hours of volunteer time each year. I can only imagine how many hours they’ve put in over the years in total! If you are a competitor in Area VII you are likely very familiar with the smiling faces of these two amazing volunteers. Organizers know if Rick and Cindi volunteer that they are hard working and reliable, fellow volunteers love working with them as they are kind, professional and energetic and perhaps most importantly, as a rider, I know when I see their smiling faces that I am in good hands. Nervous on the way to bit check for that dressage ride or being told you’re next up in the jump ring? Cindi’s bright smile and encouraging comments always impart a sense of calm. “Rick and I both love to help others so volunteering to us is natural. continue reading…
