FRIDAY EVENING UPDATE AS POSTED ON HOME PAGE UNDER LATEST NEWS...
FRIDAY early evening:  Hi all,
It did start raining here late afternoon with some initial heavy rainfall. Currently, the rainfall is mild but steady, with more heavier accumulation predicted over the next several hours.  At this point, we cannot make a decision until 6 AM, depending on footing and ground conditions.  Right now there is enough standing water on the course that we could not sensibly or safely run the cross country phase. Our feeling is that unless we can offer you a full three phase competition, we will not run.
Right now the decision at 6 will be one of three things:
  • The event is cancelled
  • The event will run as scheduled
  • The event will run but all times will be delayed 2-3 hours from what was first published.

We know that the amount and intensity of the rainfall will vary depending on the physical location.  What may be the status at your house, may be completely different than what is happening here at the farm.  Stay tuned and thanks again for your patience.

Gretchen, Steph, Robert and the fabulous Waredaca crew!
Wednesday update:
HI everyone,
Regretfully there is a strong probability of thunderstorms on Friday, day and thru the night.  Due to the abuse our parking field took last week with our Classic and Weekend Horse Trials, there is limited grass available for parking.  Fortunately, this warm weather has helped to dry up the mud, but it would not take much to turn the field into a quagmire.

We really! want to provide you the Starter Experience on Saturday IF we can get everyone in and parked, and be assured that our EMS teams can promptly get to anyone in need during the competition.  So here is the plan:

The Weather is the huge variable…and to trust the forecast is not smart.  Therefore we will make a game day decision by 6 AM Saturday morning as to whether we will hold the event as scheduled or not.  IF we cancel, full entry fees will be refunded.  IF we hold the event and you chose to not compete, there is no refund.
Also, based on the forecast, there will not be any Friday afternoon schooling due to the same parking field concerns and trying to preserve that area as best we can.
The decision will be stated on our website by 6AM Saturday and emailed to all of the riders. IF you did not get an email with this information and your times,, call or email Sarah G, the Event Secretary, immediately so to be certain you are on the email list.
Fingers crossed that the weather will be favorable for us!! Thanks for your understanding.
Gretchen, Robert, Steph and the rest of the Waredaca crew!
Please read carefully:
