2017 Festival Updates
Staying On Course
We’re listening! Based on competitor feedback, our course designers are working hard to bring some new challenges to GMHA’s legendary course. Competitors can plan for the same high-quality fences, fabulous decor, on-the-level questions, and continually-improving footing, with some new tracks on tap. In the meantime, the Festival Committee is busy working behind the scenes to ensure 2017’s Festival is the best yet.
Big Fences, Top Riders
GMHA is keeping the upper levels alive in Area 1. The Intermediate is back, along with our CIC*, currently the only FEI event in our area. We’re proud to offer these unique and precious opportunities, both for our region’s top competitors on their home turf, and for all equestrians to be able to see some of the country’s very best right here at GMHA. With $10,000 in prize money in the Intermediate and CIC* divisions, it will be a wild ride to see who takes the win.
We Want YOU
Yes, it’s really exciting to see the upper-level action. But we love eventers at all the levels! The Festival is for everyone who loves eventing. Beginner Novice and Novice riders, plan to compete on Friday and consider staying the weekend, stabling is available! Not competing? There is no better way to stay in the loop and get behind the scenes than to volunteer!
The Festival now includes several premier social events. The Patrons’ Tent will be hopping on Saturday & Sunday. If you weren’t in the tent last year, you missed out! Expect more of the same great features- super tasty food, spectacular views of the action, and a chance to relax and enjoy the day with a table full of your pals. Plan to purchase tickets early- they’ll be going even faster than Buck’s cross-country round!
The Competitors’ Party will begin at 6:30 pm on Saturday night. The party is a great chance to kick back, relax and talk about the weekend’s events with your friends and fellow eventers.
