And we’re staying put at Arroyo Del Mar. 😦
The LA Equestrian Center is a great facility, outdoor rings galore and a large indoor (fits 2 full sized rings inside with a small warmup at the back as well). If it rains the outdoor rings are not rideable. And it’s going to rain.
As this show is a CDI they’ll move the all the CDI tests inside. That’ll give them 2 warmup rings, small one and a large one and all the CDI horses will be safe and comfortable. The National show will run inside as well scheduled around the CDI tests. (The show managers for this show are amazing to be able to work all rescheduling out!!) They’ll run both large indoor rings as show rings and use the attached small indoor area as warmup. Each horse will get 15 minutes to warm up before their tests. As we are not in the CDI this show, we decided it would be best for the horses to stay at Arroyo and work in the indoor in the rain. We’ll be rooting for all the Arroyo CDI horses from a distance!!!
Not much warm weather ahead this week…glad the coach has T-Necks and toques on board!!! Break out the mittens!
