New Show Date announced for the SNC Spring Dressage Show ~ Friday June 7th, 2019

The USEF granted our Presidential Modification Request to change our spring dressage show date to FRIDAY, JUNE 7, 2019, the day before the Franktown Meadows June Classic. These will be two distinct shows allowing you the maximum exposures by 3 judges! Judges for the SN Spring Dressage show will be Brent Hicks, "S" CA and Jaki Hardy, "r", CA. The judge for the FM June Classic is Kari McClain, "S" WA. We have hosted all three of these judges in the past and they are super! It's a fantastic line up!
