The 2023 Holly Hill Spring II Schooling Horse Trials and Combined Tests event is coming up Saturday and Sunday, May 20th and 21st, 2023, in Benton, LA and your friendly announcer needs your help!

The event will be here before you know it and there's a really cool new addition this time around. On Sunday, May 21st, 2023, before the cross-country portion of the event begins, there will be a 20-minute Sunrise Service starting at 6:30 am. What a perfect way to start a day of friendly competition!

There will also be open cross-country schooling on Friday, in addition to the competition Saturday and Sunday. Your show jumping official will be Nancy Jones and the Dressage judges are Debbie Cinotto and Carole Smith. There will be a food vendor on-site and there's a special $99 room rate for competitors being offered at the Hampton Inn on Gould Drive, off of I-20, in Bossier City. Haven't entered yet? Visit PearlsOffice.com. Not riding? No worries! Be a part of the event by volunteering. Sign up at EventingVolunteers.com.

Plus, if you're a competitor, make sure to fill out your rider questionnaire! Think we should change a question or maybe add a spot for some lagniappe? Easy! Let me know if you have any questions/problems/issues/concerns by dropping me an email at erin.bristol@townsquaremedia.com.

Seriously, thank you for participating! It makes it fun for the spectators and way more personal for the competitors and owners. I appreciate the time you take to fill this out. Plus, I think it's one of the things we do at Holly Hill that sets us apart from other events... that and all that is Holly Hill!
