Please thank our sponsors and volunteers at the show we couldn't do it with out them.
We are expecting a very warm weekend. Please keep yourself and animals well hydrated. We will have lots of ice on hand and a trough filled with blocks of ice to help cool horses down. Only dip clean buckets in to the troughs of ice water - please practice good biosecurity to prevent spread of germs. Use the cold water to help cool your horse down but be sure to scrape all excess water off them. Some people have asked about modifying their stabling area, as long as it does not damage the stalls or negatively affect anyone in your neighborhood you are welcome to within reason.
Courses and Course maps - here. Many of the courses will be similar to 2015 courses, we have changed the small water complex to have 2 sides ramped into it and made slight changes to most levels.

ATC at Inavale Farm - copied from the Area VII Adult Riders April Newsletter Update:
AR is sponsoring the Area Adult Team Challenge which will be held at Inavale HT. Inavale will offer the ATC division in place of a Rider or Adult Amateur Division for BN through Training. Preliminary ATCs will be part of the Open Preliminary Division. Prizes and Ribbons will be awarded for individuals and for teams. You may form your own team or be placed on a team. We will set up a Facebook sign up on the AR page as well as take e-mails. You do not have to be an Adult Rider to compete in the Area ATCs, nor do you have to be an Amateur. You must be over 21 in 2016, however.
We are planning a social for ATC riders. Inavale was selected because of its position in the Area Calendar before the closing date of the AECs, its commitment to hosting for several years, and most importantly, the quality of the cross country course which must be championship quality.
The significance of the Area ATC is that it replaces the COTH ATCs with the possibility of every Area hosting their own ATC. Succesfully completing the Area ATC will also be one way to qualify for the national Adult Team Championships at the AECs in at the Texas Rose Horse Park, their version of the Wa State Horse Park. Area VII will use a portion of the money we have been raising through our various fundraisers to send Area VII Adult Rider Teams to the AECs.
If you do not make it to Inavale, not to worry, you can also meet the area requirements by competing on two other teams at any Area VII event however your performance will be reviewed to make regarding your ability to successfully compete on a championship level course. National requirements for the Adult Team Championships are AR membership, 3 clean cross country rides at level (with no Dangerous Riding Citations) on the horse you plan on riding within the past 24 months. Non-Amateurs may not have ridden two levels higher in the past 2 years.
