FCEA Shows for 2016


May 22 - Dressage at Whysper Wynd - Results

The first show of the season was a success.  The FCEA show team hosted 32 rides under judge Cynthia Stephens.  The weather cooperated by watering the ring the day before the show, and not baking us on show day.  The wonderful competitors gave us many kind comments, and the show staff smiled through the day.  Thank-you to the Howell's for allowing us to use their beautiful facility.


July 3 - Dressage at Whysper Wynd - Another nice day at WWF.  With Margo Marano as judge, we had a nice day with great competitors on nice horses.


Sept 25 - Dressage at Ironstone Farm - Judge is Patty Thompson

A beautiful day at Ironstone Farm.  We enjoyed the Hospitality of Dr. Sherilyn Allen and we celebrated the achievement of a new Century Club Team.  Club member Marcia Campbell rode Olster in Third Level Test 3 to qualify for a surprise membership arranged byher friend Joanne Coleman-Greene.  Adult High Score of the day with a 68.46%, went to Rachel Hosier riding Royal Aragon.
