Rebecca Farm Takes 2014 CCI*** Off The Schedule

Although it was listed in the U.S. Eventing Association’s omnibus, The Event At Rebecca Farm in Kalispell, Mont., will not host a CCI*** in 2014.

I pretty much always check everything [on the form] because we never really know how it’s going to run, and you have to do it so far ahead with the FEI.”
