Are you curious about what it takes to become an equestrian in the SCA, or just to support them? Do you have a horse and just want to come out to play? Do you NOT have a horse, but still want to come out and play? Then come join us for the weekend of Feb 27-Mar 1 in Seguine, TX for an equestrian college/official practice. There will be classes for all experience levels on Saturday (including ground crew and support personnel), and Sunday will have time for just horsing around. ;)> > If you already have plans for that Saturday (spending the Day in Sherwood, for example, hint hint wink), you are welcome to join us on Sunday morning. :) More information on Bjornsborg's A Day in Sherwood event is available at www.bjornsborg.org.> > Please Note: the equestrian practice and the Day in Sherwood event are not affiliated in any way (except for my unofficial plug for their event, and our site locations accidentally being about 10 miles apart, making it possible for you to attend both events in the same weekend).> > Details are as follows:> > --Date: Feb 27 - Mar 1.> --Site opens Friday evening (between 4-6pm) and closes Sunday afternoon when everyone goes home. ;)> --There is no site fee, since technically this is an official practice. However, we will have required waivers and etc, so please sign in when you arrive.> --There is plenty of room for camping and for trailers. There are stalls available, and pasture if needed. Please email myself (dab32 at cwru.edu) and Calena (ponyexpressnotaries at yahoo.com) for stall or pasture reservations.> --Garb is NOT required.> --Coggins paperwork IS required. Use this as an opportunity to put together an updated paperwork folder to take to Gulf Wars.> --Supper on Saturday will be a potluck. Calena will provide the meat (might be hamburgers & hotdogs, might be brisket). Please let us know what you intend to bring so we don't end up with all potato salad and no dessert. ;)> --We will do authorizations for ground crew and riding as needed throughout the day, and possibly Sunday as well.> > Our tentative equestrian college/practice schedule:> > --Friday evening: early arrivals welcome> --Saturday morning: 10am-12pm, basics of driving and basics of horsemanship (2 hrs each, 2 different classes).
