This years’ Area VI Eventing Championships took place Oct. 20-21 at the Fresno County Horse Park. “We welcomed sponsorship for the first time,’ says Area VI chairman Chris Scarlett. “We can’t thank them enough for their generous support and for working with the Fresno County Horse Park’s John Marshall to make the competition a very special event. They have started the ball rolling on making the Area Championships a year-end goal. The Fresno County Horse Park and the crew with course designer Bert Wood made the championship cross-country courses more challenging for the riders contesting the championships.”
