Volunteer opportunities for MSEDA members abound. Each month, we will feature an opportunity for members to obtain volunteer hours and help put on a successful, MSEDA-sanctioned show.
By Sarah E. Coleman
Date and Time: Saturday, July 28, 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. at Masterson Station Park
History: Horse Aid Live was established in 2009 to promote humane treatment for all equines, regardless of breed, and to provide support for nonprofit organizations that provide humane treatment and shelter for equines. Horse Aid Live has donated to dozens of recognized 501c3 organizations throughout the United States.
We are expecting 200+ rides with three dressage rings starting approximately 8 a.m. and run continually until 4 p.m. Showjumping will begin approximately 10:30 a.m. and run until 4 p.m.
Classes will be further split as entries warrant. Western Dressage has been split into two divisions because of the continued increase in entries.
Dressage: Introductory - 4th Level
Western Dressage: Introductory - 4th Level
Gaited Dressage: Introductory - 4th Level
Combined Test: Greenie - Preliminary
Competitors can compete on the same horse in two consecutive levels. Un-judged schooling jump rounds are offered after each level for rider/horse combinations who are entered in those divisions.
Sponsors to date include Park Equine Hospital and, Liquor Barn. Sponsorship information for those interested in donating monetary and/or prize donations: http://www.horseaidlive.org/sponsor.html
