The Waredaca Classic Series Three-Day is fortunate to be supported by a group of organizers in Area II who believe firmly in the importance of the Classic Series. Together with the Horse Park of New Jersey (HPNJ) Horse Trials, Seneca Valley Pony Club Horse Trials, Surefire Horse Trials, and Morven Park Horse Trials, we are pleased to announce the 2019 Road to the Three-Day Challenge.
The Waredaca Classic Series Three-Day Event is a formative experience for young riders, amateurs, and professionals alike, and back for 2019 as the lead clinician will be international eventing competitor, coach, and FEI Official Eric Smiley. Waredaca Classic Series competitors are treated to three days filled with instruction, insight, and inspiration.
The Road to the Three-Day is paved with preparation, and these five events offer an ideal path to success at the Waredaca Classic Series Three-Day:
To be eligible for the Challenge*, competitors must complete a minimum of two of the five events in addition to the Waredaca Classic Series Three-Day. Points will be awarded according to placing with first place worth 10 points, second place eight, third place seven, fourth place six, fifth place five, and sixth place four. Completion of an event that meets the Minimum Eligibility Requirements (MER) will be awarded three points. Points for the Waredaca Classic Series Three-Day will be doubled in value.
Winners will be awarded a cooler, generously donated by RideSafe, as well as free entry to all five participating events in 2020. A winner will be named at each of the levels offered at the Waredaca Classic Series Three-Day: Novice, Training, and Preliminary.
*The USEA has Classic Series qualifications for each level offered in the series. Completion of the Road to the Three-Day Challenge does not, by default, qualify you for the Classic Series Three-Day. Qualification requirements can be found on the Waredaca Classic Series Three-Day website.
