The Willow Draw Charity Show, scheduled to run on Saturday, May 25, has been forced to cancel due to heavy rainfall in the northern region of Texas.
"Willow Draw Charity Show is cancelled," said the event on a statement on Facebook. "Holly Hill and Tyler fought it out as they are on hills and we are a catch basin. Everything was set, flag, staked, warmup jumps, start boxes, safety ropes in place. The only piece left was to set up stadium. With 100 entries, the parking would have been tough enough. The deal breaker was outdoor stadium. This winter we leveled and mixed in lightly arena footing. It has not been able to set. Horses would have punch the ground 4-6" easily. With more rain schedule this week after today, it was best to cancel as we know our ground has been saturated for the last 30 days. Full refunds, less office fee, and expenses [will be given]."
Following the cancellation of the Jersey Fresh International Three-Day Event for 2022, US Equestrian will open a one-week bid process to fill the date on the 2022 U.S. Eventing Calendar. Per the 2022 U.S. FEI Eventing Calendar Policies and Procedures, applications to host the CCI4*-L level during the 2022 competition season are accepted by invitation only.
The addition of a new event to the competition calendar is always exciting, but the Event at TerraNova in Myakka City, Florida aims to really wow their first-time competitors at their inaugural event with top-notch competition facilities, stunning course design, exceptional amenities, and a horse show experience unlike any other. With a roster of 142 entries altogether from Starter to the in their CCI4*-S level, the Event at TerraNova is off to a great start!
