What could be better?   The USMMA is planning a multi-day event at Haras Vista da Serra, located near Helena Montana.  Tia Nelson, DVM has offered her beautiful ranch for the venue.  

There will be a mix of opportunities for education, riding and social gatherings.   More information will be coming your way about costs, hotels, and details as the days are developed!   You do have an opportunity to bring your own horse to ride or to put your name in to be a rider on one of the available MMs at the event.    Put the dates in your calendar and think about coming – we would love to see you there!

August 15 – arrival and start of ABCCMM inspection   If you have never seen an ABCCMM inspection, it is a worthwhile and valuable learning experience.  Foals and 3 years olds are inspected by ABCCMM inspector George Vilar.

August 16 – more arrivals and finish of ABCCMM inspection.  Perhaps demos of selected MMs.   Social event that evening.

August 17 – meet and match the Marchadors and riders.   Cavalgadas during the day (there may be multiple rides)   Cavalgada means long rides, but we may plan some easier, shorter rides as well.   Breakfast on your own, but lunch will be provided.  Social event that evening.

August 18 – Wrap-up, departures.

For more information now, contact the event committee chairs – Tia Nelson drnelson@valleyvethelena.comand Cathy Pierce If you are thinking you will be there, send them an email!
