Specific info on shows will come as things get closer.  I’m pretty show each series will have year-end champion awards, along with an overall versatility champion for the horse/rider who accumulates the most points across all three series.  And I’m also pretty sure classes will be inexpensive but have PAYBACKS!  Stay tuned for details!
