Heading into the first phase of the competition in Leesburg, Va. there were 15 pairs entered in the CIC3*, 13 in the Advanced, and five in the Advanced Area II Championships. However with many horses having run last two weeks ago at Plantation Field CIC3* and many aiming for the Fair Hill International CCI3* in two weeks – withdrawals were the name of the final day.

In this series, the United States Evening Association (USEA) is partnering with Athletux to feature those around us who help make these events happen, the volunteers.
