In light of the EHV-1 Outbreak in California, the team at Twin Rivers issued the following statement regarding the cancellation of their Twin Rivers Winter Horse Trials originally set to run March 3-6:
Unfortunately, after much deliberation the Twin Rivers Winter Horse Trials is canceled due to the EHV-1 Outbreak in California. We felt that as a facility we had every precaution in place to make a safe environment for competitors to be at the Ranch. However, it has become apparent that the willingness to be transparent about EHV exposure and vaccination status of horses is troublesome. As show management to ensure a safe environment for horse welfare we felt it was in everyone's best interest for safety to cancel.
We are very sad to have to make this decision as the facility stands ready to accept horses. We will make every effort to refund as much as possible, but have already outlaid many expenses for the courses, stabling, etc. We hope to have a refund amount in the next few weeks.Please stay safe and healthy as we look forward to seeing you in April for the Spring International Event!

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.
