With the addition of the Preliminary level, Waredaca becomes one of three event venues in the country to offer a three day event with Novice, Training and Preliminary.
Mark your calendars for October 24-28, 2018!
Area 1 wants to send teams for all 3 divisions in this Classic Series event!
The Waredaca Classic Three Day is truly an experience. It’ll leave you with goosebumps on your arms, sweat running down your body and elation in your heart. It will push you to your limits, at times scare the bejeezus out of you, but at the end of the three days, it’ll leave you and your horse bonded in a way you haven’t felt before.
The Classic is a formative experience for young riders, amateurs and professionals alike. Led by Eventing legend Eric Smiley, Waredaca Classic competitors are treated to three days filled with instruction, insight and inspiration. Eric, with the help of an experienced team of dressage judges, event organizers, technical delegates, vets and more walk riders through every piece of the long format. We’re talking dressage test demos, cross country and show jumping course walks, mini steeplechase clinics, Q&As with vets, top riders and more!
There’s a lot of talk about the value of the long format event…about how “back in the day,” that–that was real eventing; when cross country/endurance day was at the heart of the sport; when riders had to practice a different kind of horsemanship. Ask anyone who’s contested the Classic and they’ll tell you there’s truth to these claims. No event, championship or otherwise, can come close to the experience of completing a long format event.
