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!
