This has been a difficult decision, but with the current pandemic situation at hand, we feel that this is the correct and ‘common sense’ direction to take. We are developing a plan to host a shorter, smaller, and more focused competition. We will be using state and local protocols to help guide us through this. Safety is paramount at Rebecca Farm, for both equine and human participants. This also includes our devoted and supportive Flathead Valley community.
Many of you plan your calendar based on coming to Rebecca Farm. We understand and share in your disappointment as we love to have you all here. The event is our favorite time of the year. It would be irresponsible for us to host 600-700 horses and riders, thousands of spectators, social functions, and a shopping fair during these uncertain times. We are asking that spectators not come out to the event as we try to keep things safe for everyone.
We plan to run only national divisions, Beginner Novice through Advanced. This will be the first event for many riders in the west and the courses will reflect that. Our cross-country course will be moderate for the levels. Entries will be limited to 300 and the competition will run over three days, Friday, July 24 to Sunday, July 26. All of us are looking forward to hosting a wonderful, fun, and safe competition.
Keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for more information. We are evaluating as things change. Please be patient as we analyze and strategize in the best interest of horses, competitors, volunteers, owners, officials, and enthusiasts.
What do you get when you combine an aviation engineer, a successful amateur rider, and a galloping event horse? The answer, it seems, is the man who has made a massive contribution to the work of the FEI Eventing Risk Management Committee, and his name is David Vos.
