Equine Hurricane Benefit
November 12-13, 2005 at Fox Chase Farm in Middleburg,
Join the Nokesville Horse Society, an affiliate of the Northern Virginia
Coalition of Equine Organizations, in a fun show to raise money for the
equestrians and their equines affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
These hurricanes wreaked havoc in the Gulf Coast area, affecting hundreds
of equines and their owners. 100% of the net proceeds from this
event will go directly to the recovery efforts. We encourage ANYONE
to participate, regardless of disciple or breed. Come on out and
enjoy some friendly team competition between barns, clubs, riding groups
All entries must be pre-registered online by 9pm November 12, 2005.
If you are a single rider that needs a team, we will help you find a team
to ride with. If you are registering to ride with a particular
team, please indicate that on the entry form. Classes are $5 per
Saturday, November 12: Junior and Senior divisions in

funny antics, as well!)
