Regrettably, due to insufficient entries, the management of Lost Hounds HT has determined that we will be unable to hold the Horse Trials the weekend of June 18th and 19th 2016.  Anyone who supported the event by entering will receive a complete refund.  If you entered and payed through Xentry, USEA will be issuing your refund in the form of a check or credit back to your CC. They will be in contact with you sometime next week.  If you mailed your entry with payment, those checks will be destroyed. 

Many of you have been long time supporters of Lost Hounds HT and we are very appreciative of that support. Unfortunately, due to dwindling numbers in the past few years, we have come to the decision to no longer run the Lost Hounds HT in the future.

The Heart of the Carolinas Three-Day Event and Horse Trials at Southern 8ths Farm in Chesterfield, S.C. was the first horse trials in the country to offer the newly developed Coaching Allowed Division (CAT) at its May horse trials. Though the division was small, the riders’ efforts were mighty, and educational benefits of the new class were evident. 

HOTC co-organizer Cindy Deporter is on the USEA Membership Committee that created the concept of the CAT. “We had many healthy discussion about it with all of us feeling like it was the correct way to move forward. The idea of course was to encourage the Beginner Rider into our sport and help the more timid rider to be able to make the move up to Novice with assistance,” Deporter said.
