The USEF (United States Equestrian Federation) sponosored ZTEC ride is being staged this weekend, September 22, in Fort Howes, Montana. Ride organizers Jan and Bill Stevens are hosting the event at their ranch. Jan Stevens reports that "Fritz Harshbarger, photographer and dance instructor, will be covering the ride with photos and updates.
Volunteers have started showing up with Anne Pfeiffer coming in last night. Anne has outdone herself with her customized mirrors and various other artwork to be used as awards. She's busy today creating the edible goodies (critters) that she is famous for.
Weather is looking good with highs in the upper 70's, lows in the 40's. Some chances of rain throughout the week - a welcome relief to the dry conditions we have right now.
As of right now we have 16 teams (3-4 riders per team) coming to compete - FEI, Open, and Mixed (FEI/Open). Riders are coming from Vermont to California, from Oregon to Illinois, from New Jersey to Texas, including 4 teams from Canada. Included in that mix are 4 teams with juniors and one Young Rider team (riders 16-21 years old)."
The is an AERC and FEI sanctioned event, with emphasis on Sponsored Team placement.
