NOVA Equine Hurricane Benefit

November 12-13, 2005 at Fox Chase Farm in Middleburg, VA

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 and friends! 

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 rider.
Saturday, November 12:  Junior and Senior divisions in Gaited, Western Pleasure and Gymkhana style classes.  We will have a Live Auction as well as K-9 Agility Races and Terrier Races (a huge attraction each year at the Washington International Horse Show - you will be amazed at the speed and agility of these small dogs, and their funny antics, as well!)
Sunday, November 13:  Junior and Senior divisions in English Pleasure and Hunter/Jumpers, as well as a Musical Dressage Demonstration.
Ribbons will be awarded up to sixth place.  Champion and Reserve for each division will have a donation made in their team's name to the Equine Hurricane Relief Effort.
We need sponsors for each class.  Class sponsorships are $50 each, and each sponsor will be provided with free advertisement in the ads, show prize lists and will be announced at the beginning of each class.  To sponsor a class, contact Jeff Shoup at 703-754-4981 or 703-402-3726. 
We also need donors for our silent auction.  If you have a product or service you would like to donate, please contact Coreen Moncrief at
