We are nearing the end of the "Year of Eventing in Area VI Raffle" in support of the Area VI Young Riders. Every organizer in Area VI donated an entry resulting in a retail value of approximately $2500. Raffle tickets are $10 each or 6 for $50. Certificates are transferable. There are 1500 tickets available. The raffle ends on April 24th. Tickets are available from all Area VI Young Rider program members. Feel free to contact us if you need to get in touch with them.
It has been a busy spring for Southern California Equestrian Sports. We ran our Horse Trials the weekend of March 19-20, concluded the West Coast Fundraiser last week in conjunction with the Elite Event Horse Auction held during the Galway Downs competition and are running the "Year of Eventing in Area VI Raffle" benefiting Area V Young Rider program. SCES rider's are on the road-Jennifer Wooten and Hawley Bennett-Awad are headed to Badminton. Jil Walton, Martha McDowell, Tiana Coudray, Frankie Thierot, Heather Morris and Kelly Prather are all enroute to Rolex. It's exciting to see all of the competitors pursue their goals. Keep in mind these journies all come with a big price tag-so your continued support is always needed and appreciated. Special thanks to Wendy Wergeles and the Elite Event Horse Auction. SCES is the beneficiary of this event and we look to improve our prescense and assistance for this important event. Also a big thank you to Rose Sullivan for her donation of a breeding to Clair de Lune SE and to Vickie Koss for being the Buyer. More thanks are owed to The Michel's of Jackson Hole, WY for their donation of a one week stay at a luxury 2 bd condominium at The Teton Club. Dayna Lynd-Pugh was the lucky winner. All donors (over $50) to the West Coast Rider Fund from January 1 thru April 4 were included in a drawing . Riders-keep this in mind for next year. As you may have noticed we have a new website guru-Lisa Thomas. Riders, we are still looking for website links and photos. Thank you to all of our supporters. We are always looking for people to help us continue to raise funds for our riders so please don't hesitate to contact us.
