CIC One Star Coming To the Fox River Valley Pony Club Horse Trials

By Fox River Valley Pony Club - Press Release

Save the Date, June 24-26, 2011: In an effort to provide Midwest riders with qualifying competition options within the Midwest region, the Fox River Valley Pony Club Horse Trials Advisory Board has applied for and received USEA approval for a new CIC One Star division, beginning in 2011. This development is in keeping with the FRVPCHT mission of providing the best possible competitive experience for horses, riders and trainers.

The 2010 autumn and fall preparations for the 2011 event included the clearing of some new tracks, management of existing turf, and a restorative schedule for some of the older jumps. New jumps are in the works at all levels, as are improvements to many of the systems that have been in place for decades on the property. The venue has been recently altered by the additions of a fence boundary that separates the Park District from the Forest Preserve and some new graveled parking areas, resulting in some new challenges related to stabling and parking. However, all systems are “go” and the organizers are in full swing to make the 2011 event the best ever.

Platinum Sponsor Barrington Saddlery is pleased to announce the addition of a “Trainer Shuttle” to and from the cross-country area, and event management is additionally working on some innovative conveniences to try and maximize the trainer and student experience at this event.

Sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are still available for the 2011 event. This is the longest running equestrian event in the Barrington Hills community, and brings together horses, riders, friends and neighbors for an exciting weekend full of competition and camaraderie. Proceeds from the event contribute to the continued management of the jumps and trails in the Forest Preserve as well as educational opportunities for the members of the Fox River Valley Pony Club. Don’t miss an opportunity to ride, watch, help or contribute to the 2011 Fox River Valley Pony Club Horse Trials, June 24-26, 2011.

Change of Rein: Rosie Smith's Journey from Reining to the #2022AEC

Rosie Smith’s rose gold accented helmet matched her perfectly tidy bun of red hair as she took the third spot in the USEA Training Rider Championship at the 2022 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nurena Feeds. Every little detail came together while aboard her trusted partner of nine years: the 20-year-old Connemara Irish Draught named Seamus (by Corrcullen, RID). But Smith’s first jump, back when she was only 15 years old, wasn’t with an English saddle.

Pragg understands the importance that volunteers play in the eventing community and makes sure to give whatever time she can back as a fair gesture.
