I just got back from judging the dressage portion of the Hickory Top Horse Trials. What a friendly, introductory show! Kids were given lots of help by many to make sure their experience was enjoyable. The show was well run with plenty of volunteers and everything was so well coordinated. My first time scribe, Carolyn Bunch, caught on quickly and did a great job. I really liked the idea of having outriders available to ride along beside the youngest riders while out on the cross country course to be sure all went well.
