It’s a busy day for the Mid-America Combined Training Association. Tuesday, August 22nd is Opening Day for the 2017 USEA Area IV Championships and Heritage Park Horse Trials hosted by MACTA. We are using a new on-line entry system, BlueHorse Entries, which permits complete entry submission without having to print and mail. It has not been without its glitches but we are hopeful that the learning curve will lesson and we will all learn to love it.
Entries are rolling in despite the hiccups due to the reduced rate for entries submitted and paid for completely today, Opening Day. We are also pleased to offer some excellent prize money for the event this year. Details
Results are posted for the August 20th MACTA D/CT/HT. We had an excellent turnout despite the local RIO Combined Test held on the same day. Results
The Horse of the Year competition is heating up as we come into the final two events for the season. Training level is the closest with Julie Wolfert’s Mizzen in Action with just a two point lead over Jutta Lipsky and Seattle Battle. Lauren Schiller and KS Bluestem Cimarron B have the largest lead across the divisions, a solid 24 point lead in the Novice Horse of the Year competition. MACTA HOY 2017 Standings
