The LOPE Benefit Horse Show is being rescheduled for NEXT Saturday 9/27. The recent heavy rain combined with a wet weekend forecast makes this decision necessary. But the good news is that now you have more time to practice for the show! We will keep all current entries active -- but if you need to cancel, make changes or want to register for new classes, please contact the show secretary at by this Tues evening. New entries welcome too! Revised ride times will be posted next Thursday. We are glad for the rain but also are looking forward to a nice, DRY day on 9/27 for the LOPE Benefit Horse Show :) ...
