- General Information
Once again Test Master Hendrik Gable from
The Guest test rider duties for the dressage phase were return riders Scott Ottewell and Curtis Barbour. Waylon Roberts, a CET three day event rider in the 2007 PanAm Games and Roberto Teran, former Columbian Equestrian Team Member now based in Canada, took on the task of evaluating rideability over fences. Overall the test went well with no major hiccups and as with any endeavour this size there are always take aways on how to improve for the next time.
The facility is currently undergoing improvements and we have been invited to participate in the equestrian recommendations. The first of which has been implemented ..new footing.
