DO OVER CLASSES:

We still have “Do Over” Jumper classes!  The USEF has changed the regulations of hors concours classes, and therefore we have had to change the format in which our “Do Over” classes are operated.  We have offered a Blue Ribbon class corresponding with each height in the jumper schedule.  If you still would like to do a “Do Over” round, please let the in gate personnel know!  As always, “Do Over” classes will be allowed on a time permitting basis.  We also still have our Warm Up Jumper classes available!

 

CHANGE IN SPECIFICATIONS:

The following divisions have had changes made in their specifications:

  • Modified Limit Equitation.
  • Modified Equitation.
  • Modified &/or Limit &/or Pre-Children’s Hunter.
  • Modified &/or Limit &/or Pre-Adult Hunter.
  • Low Amateur / Junior Hunter.

Mid States Spring Show Cancelled

i May 4th No Comments by

MidstatesLogo.legs.up 2

 

Greetings friends of Mid States,

I regret to inform you that we must cancel the show scheduled for this next week at the North Iowa Events Center in Mason City, IA. We looked at the scenario from many angles, and tried to come up with some ideas that would enable us to run the show with the light numbers, but ultimately the expense was too great.

We will still be hosting our SUMMER SERIES in Mason City and hope to see all of you there!!

Additionally, we are looking into the options of rescheduling the event for later in the season.

Please feel free to reach out to Dan with any further questions: 619-820-3802.

See you in June!

Dan
