Heading back north to Virginia for the first VADA NOVA dressage show of the season at Morven Park. After a long wet winter, it was an interesting start to the season. With high winds blowing over the dressage letters and arena on Saturday, show management quickly improvised and placed the arena rails directly on the ground and tipped the letters over to keep them in place.

The rain held off for the show and the downpour was perfectly timed Saturday after the show had finished for the day. The footing at The Meadow Event Park held up great even with the rain.
