Riders in Area V that have declared Professional status with the USEA have been invited to compete in the 2013 Area V Pro Pony Challenge Friday evening, March 29, before the start of the March 30-31 Texas Rose Horse Park Horse Trials. We have a very generous offer from Kim Brunson of Brunson Equestrian Center located at the Texas Rose Horse Park (TRHP) in Tyler to provide ponies for a wonderful FUNdraising opportunity to support the Area V 2013 Championships, which will be hosted by Greenwood Farm in October. The Area V Council has set a goal to raise $5,000 for the Area V Championships, and you can help us reach that goal!
Area V and the North Texas Eventing Association (NTEA) held their Annual Meeting and 2012 Year-End Awards Banquet on Saturday, January 5, 2013 at the Fort Worth Sheraton and Spa. Over 250 attended the joint year-end awards dinner banquet complete with live auction, silent auction, and dancing late into the night to Empty Pockets, Top 40 country and classic rock band.
Area V welcomed a new USEA event venue last weekend, Texas Rose Horse Park in Tyler, Texas. It is never easy putting on a new event, but it is especially challenging when dealing with record-breaking rain and snow across the area. Yes, it snowed in Texas – at least twice in February while they were finishing the cross-country course.
