Old Chatham HT, July 10, will be accepting post-closing date entries until Tuesday, July 5. Please note this is NOT an extension of the
closing date (CD); all CD criteria still apply as does the post-closing date late fee. All avenues for entering are still open (EVentEntries,
XEntry, email, fax, snail mail).
Secondly, for all riders entering the Starter Division (ST), this division has been removed from the event and any entry for ST has been moved to
INTRO. We are re-working the "rules" and will have them posted on the Old Chatham page of Larkin' Hill's website soon.
Lastly, EventEntries missed adding the $21 starter fee to the BN divisions...if you entered via EE, please make sure to send the additional $21.
Huntington Farm is accepting late entries for the July 9 - 10 event.

Help the UNH XC course! The UNH horse trials is one of the oldest events in New England. For over 40 years, it has been running on the UNH
campus. Area I competitors have been starting and ending their seasons at UNH Horse Trials, often using the fall trials after a season at one
level as a testing ground for going up a level in their competition. Pony Clubs, Hunt clubs, dressage shows, camps, clinics and many of us
individually use the UNH course frequently because of its convenient location and accessible layout. Itís vital part of our collective
As with all public institutions, UNH is under budgetary pressure. The cross-country course, designed and built by the talented UNH alumnus Jim

It is time to both update and upgrade the cross country course, to include building an elementary level course to appeal to and attract even more
competitors to the wonderful UNH campus and the equine sports we all love. The Friends of UNH Cross Country have organized to raise upwards of
