In short, if you are coming to FENCE Horse Trials April 16 & 17 be sure to have a copy of your horse's CURRENT VACCINATION RECORD within 6 months. This means either a receipt from your veterinarian OR if you give the shots yourself, a receipt of the vaccine purchase with serial number and expiration date of the vaccine and date of vaccine administration. Do NOT send copies of this to the secretary. Do not bring to the show office. It is NOT show management's responsibility. The responsiblity falls on the person responsible for the horse. You May Be Asked by a veterinarian for this paperwork!

FINAL Entry Status Report......As of April 11th
Those of you who have been bumped will know it if your name no longer appears on this list!
If your name appears on this list with missing items, you will be charged a $20 late fee
A visual bit inspection is required (EV115.3b). If you or your groom cannot present the bit, a bit checker, with a fresh glove, will assist. The goal is to have a full view of the bit.
If you opt for a bit check AFTER your test you must inform the bit checker of this and remain at the out gate of the dressage arena where you have ridden your test until the bit checker has come to review your bit. At the Kidd Barn and at the front of the Infield Barns a stall has been set aside for a bit check if your horse requires you to remove the bridle for inspection after your test.
Please ADJUST your DRESSAGE WARM-UP accordingly to ensure you arrive at your arena ON TIME so as not to be eliminated!!!!!

Scratch Team Challenge
FENCE Horse Trials is once again thrilled to offer the exciting Scratch Team Challenge to all competitors already entered in the horse trials!
So what is the scoop on Scratch Teams?
Teams consist of 3 or 4 riders competing in the same Division (P, T, N, BN, or Starter). The best three weighted scores will be used to determine final team standings. There is NO ADDITIONAL FEE to compete as a team! Prizes will be awarded to the first place winners of each division at the conclusion of the event.
What does it take to be on a scratch team???
get together with 2 or 3 other people at your level and form a team...they can be juniors or amateurs or professionals, so long as everyone is competing at the same level i.e. all at P, T, Novice or all at BN, Starter etc.
What if I don't know anyone???? Scratch teams are a perfect way to make new friends! Just let the secretary know when you send in your entry that you want to be placed on a scratch team...simple as that!
