Waredaca Classic Three-Day Teams with Area II Organizers to Offer Road to the Three-Day Challenge

By Waredaca - Edited Press Release

In the days when long format eventing reigned, there was a different kind of emphasis on preparation, on endurance, on horsemanship. The nature of the competition demanded it.

Waredaca, with the help of the United States Eventing Association’s (USEA) Classic Series Program, has been able to keep these foundational values alive through the annual Waredaca Classic Three-Day Event. We are fortunate be supported by a group of organizers in Area II who believe firmly in the importance of the long format. Together, with the Horse Park of New Jersey (HPNJ) Horse Trials, Seneca Valley Pony Club (SVPC) Horse Trials, and Morven Park Horse Trials, we are excited to announce the Road to the Three-Day Challenge.

The Road to the Three-Day is paved with preparation, and these four stops, HPNJ HT on July 27-29, Waredaca HT on August 18-19, SVPC HT on September 8-9, and Morven Park HT on October 5-7, offer an ideal path to success at the Waredaca Classic Three-Day Event held October 24-28. Winners will be awarded a cooler, generously donated by RideSafe, as well as free entry to all four participating events in 2019. A winner will be named for each of the levels offered at the Three-Day: Novice, Training, and Preliminary.

To be eligible for the Challenge*, competitors must complete a minimum of two of the four events in addition to the Three-Day. Points will be awarded according to placing with first place worth 10 points, second worth eight points, third place worth seven points, fourth place worth six points, fifth place worth five points, and sixth place worth four points. Completion of an event that meets the Minimum Eligibility Requirements (MER) will be awarded three points. At the Three-Day points will be doubled in value. Interested competitors can enter here.

The Waredaca Classic Three-Day Event is a formative experience for young riders, amateurs and professionals alike. Now led by Olympian, World Games competitor, and FEI Course Designer John Williams, Waredaca Classic Three-Day competitors are treated to three days filled with instruction, insight, and inspiration. Williams, with the help of an experienced team of dressage judges, event organizers, technical delegates, vets, and more will walk riders through every piece of the long format. This includes dressage test demos, cross-country and show jumping course walks, mini steeplechase clinics, Q&As with vets and top riders, and more.

Veselka Farms to Host Bruce Davidson Clinic

"No matter how old you are, be open to all disciplines, learn how to ride a dressage horse, a gaited horse, a show jumper. Go fox hunting and point-to-pointing and horse showing. You’ll learn from all of them and when you do decide which discipline you want to do, you’ll be better at it anyway.”

Horse Heroes: Bellamy

Bellamy, an Oldenburg/Thoroughbred gelding of unknown breeding, came to Tamra Smith’s farm in Southern California with his mane half-way down his neck and filled with burrs. Bellamy had been sitting in a field for a little over a year after unseating several riders in a row and Smith, known for being good with tricky horses, agreed to take him on.
