The Copper Meadows Horse Trials scheduled for March 13-15, 2020 in Ramona, California has been canceled due to heavy rainfall.
Originally scheduled to run over three days, organizer Taren Hoffos first shortened the event to run over two days with a modified schedule before being forced to cancel due to concerns over the footing.
"Well, it's with a sad heart that I let you all know that we have officially cancelled the show for this weekend," Hoffos said in a statement on the Area VI Facebook page. "The rains are just too much for us to overcome. I'd like to thank all of the volunteers from the depths of my soul for signing up and for being willing to come out and help us rain or shine. There's no one out there that is as lucky as I am to have the generous volunteers of Copper Meadows! I'm so very grateful to each and every one of you for the changes that you adapt to and your 'CAN DO' attitude!"

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.
