Peak of activity throughout the state.

July was a busy month for CDS, on both ends of the state. The Junior/Young Rider Championships, South, took place at Galway Downs in Temecula on July 13-14. That same weekend, an Equine Insurance/Regional Adult Amateur Competition (RAAC) was going on at Starr Vaughn Equestrian in the Sacramento area’s Elk Grove.


The North edition of the JR/YR champs was set for July 26-28 at Murieta Equestrian Center near Sacramento, and Central and South RAACs were planned for Aug. 10-11 and 22-25, at Twin Rivers Ranch in Paso Robles, and the Los Angeles Equestrian Center respectively.
