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.
