USEA Omnibus: Windy Wyoming H.T. (Sep 2012)
Windy Wyoming is settling in for our third year at our new venue, the historic Wyoming State Territorial Prison. This year, we are excited to offer the YEH and FEH competitions in addition to our regular horse trials divisions (including beginner novice easy through preliminary). We believe these competitions encourage the development of eventing prospects. As the WW Organizing Committee has multiple riders competing at preliminary and above, this is certainly important to us. We have already heard positive feedback for these additions, and look forward to seeing all of our friends and fellow competitors in September! All competitors & visitors MUST receive & wear wrist bands immediately upon arrival and for entire event - this provides entry to all exhibits and grounds at this great venue for the entire weekend.
