Copper Meadows Eventing 2021 Fundraiser

By Copper Meadows - Edited Press Release

Copper Meadows Eventing will host their 2nd annual Fundraising event June 5-6, 2021. The Copper Meadows Fundraiser was a great success in 2019, and we look forward to an even bigger event this summer. All funds raised to go improvements to our facilities, cross-country course, and both our recognized and unrecognized events: 2019 funds allowed for Copper to add footing to our main dressage competition arena, as well as the warmup, and we added a bank to our show jumping warm-up arena to benefit our derbies! Join us with an All-Inclusive weekend pass, which gets riders access to unlimited judged dressage tests, show jumping rounds, and cross-country schooling, as well as a dinner on June 5th with an impressive silent auction and live raffle.

Grand Prix dressage riders Terri Rocovich and Tiffany Silverman will be on-site judging dressage tests June 5 and 6, respectively, with times spaced 8 minutes apart to allow for feedback after each test. There will be a long and a short court available, and the arena will be open to Eventing and USDF tests. Show jumping will run by level, with courses designed by FEI show jump designer Jose Nava. Cross-country will be show prepped: flowers, flags, and footing drug for schooling. Local trainers will be on-site and available for help with schooling all weekend, please visit our website to see a list of trainers who are attending.

The All-Inclusive Pass is $350 for both days or $200 for one day; each option includes the Saturday night dinner catered by Nutmeg Cafe. Additional dinner tickets can be purchased for $20/each. Raffle tickets are 5 for $20, raffle ticket purchasers do not need to be onsite to win raffle items! We will broadcast the raffle live on Facebook: buy tickets via Venmo and tune in live to see what you win! Great silent auction items available for bid, including An incredible riding, dining, and lodging package from Lavender & Olive, a Horse Trials entry to a future Copper Meadows recognized event, lessons from our area’s top coaches and riders, MMA lessons from a UFC Ultimate Fighter winning athlete, autographed collectibles from 5* eventers, and so much more.
