FOR MAY 24-27
EAST WINDSOR, Conn. -- The Region 1 Amateur Horseback Championship and accompanying Open stakes will be held Memorial Day weekend at Flaherty Field Trial Area.

Many thanks go out to Don Gustafson, Spruce Brook president; and Tom Tracy and Alene LeVasseur, field trial chairmen, for their help in making this a smooth transition.
