North Run

The 2020 winter show season has come to an early end due to the global heath crisis. As we all wait to see what the next step will be, the North Run team will be staying in Wellington for at least another month. After letting our horses and hard working staff have a week of R&R, we will be gearing up to focus on lessons and training during this break in the action.

Kudos to the USEF and WEF for taking the correct steps to help in trying to ensure everyone’s health and safety during this unusual time. The entire world has taken a pause in response to the current situation, and despite the difficult decision to cancel WEF, it was absolutely the correct thing to do. Thank you to the WEF management team for making the right choice.

Here are a few highlights from week 10!
