Hauls in welcome. Please make sure to sign up and email Amy at cedarridgeequines@gmail.com to let her know what tests you would like to do, time requests and what items you will contribute to potluck. Amy is happy to help work with you to determine what tests are a good fit for you and your horse as well.
