May WHES Garners Rave Reviews
The 2016 $20,000 War Horse Event Series presented by Southern Pines Equine Associates and Adequan kicked-off May 14-15, with everyone enjoying a beautiful weekend at the Horse Park. Saturday’s Schooling Day was a great success and provided horses and riders a great opportunity to hone their skills before Sunday’s Horse Trial. As a sign of the WHES success, 212 competitors took part in Horse Trials and Combined Tests at the Green as Grass through Intermediate levels.

The War Horse Event Series continues with a Schooling Day June 18th and Horse Trial and Combined Test competition on Sunday, June 19th. We look forward to seeing everyone for another great event later this month!

Area II Launches Test of New Volunteer Incentive Program "VIP"

Area II, in conjunction with Waredaca Horse Trials, Seneca Horse Trials and the Maryland Horse Trials at Loch Moy Farm, is pleased to announce an exciting new program to promote and recognize the heart and soul of eventing: volunteers.

From volunteer check-in on your smartphone to an online source for organizers to coordinate volunteers, this new pilot program, the Volunteer Incentive Program (VIP) kicks off with big plans to streamline the volunteer experience. Area II will launch and test this idea before expanding across the country.

The cornerstone of VIP, through the generous contribution of Area II, is the website, This site is poised to be the go-to place for volunteers and organizers alike. Participants can sign up for volunteer shifts at participating events directly through the site, and organizers can also use the page as a point of communication with volunteers. Eventually, this site will also feature any resource a volunteer could need including summaries of volunteer jobs, tips on what to bring for the day and information on getting more involved in the sport.
