The Delaware Valley Combined Training Association (DVCTA) is excited to announce their partnership with Nunn Finer for the DVCTA “Nunn Finer Optimum Time Watch Challenge Series." To qualify, riders must compete in both the June 24 and August 26, 2012 DVCTA Horse Trials at Carousel Park, Wilmington, DE. (Limit one watch per rider per year.)
The Junior, Adult Amateur, Professional, and DVCTA Member rider with the combined lowest score from the two events will be awarded an Optimum Time Watch for their event riding consistency and excellence. The watches have been generously donated by Nunn Finer for the 2012, 2013, and 2014 DVCTA Horse Trials Series.
“Nunn Finer is proud to be associated with a series which promotes riders to reach new heights through healthy competition and rewards them for doing so,” said John Nunn, President of Nunn Finer. “Hopefully Nunn Finer’s participation and the participation from other organizations promotes more competitions of this nature.”
