>> The Area I Council is delighted to announce that Deb Meek will be taking over the role of Coordniator for the Young Rider Program.

She shares this passion with her 13 year old daughter Magdalene (Mags).

Dear Eventing Community,

It is with great sadness and regret that we inform you that the ENYDCTA Board has voted to cancel the Old Chatham Horse Trials for 2015. A special session of the Board was held via conference call and after a very lengthy, in-depth discussion, in a vote of 7 to 1, the hard decision was made to cancel the event.

The Board's vote was based on the following:

As of Tuesday evening, August 11th (one week after the closing date of August 4th) there were only 95 confirmed entries. The new norm of entering events post-closing has created an atmosphere of uncertainty for many organizers. It is this uncertainty that has led to the cancellation of this event.

All paid entries will receive a full refund - all checks were held and will be destroyed; those that paid via credit card through EventEntries or XEntry, we will first try to get your cards credited or will mail checks to those that cannot be refunded.

Please contact Regina Cristo (rcristo@nycap.rr.com) or Erin Keehan (irishelk@outlook.com) if you have any questions.

Thank you for your understanding.

Kind regards,
Erin, Regina and the Board of Directors of ENYDCTA
