SOUTHSIDE POSTPONED 10th MARCH
For those that haven't checked the forecast this weekend - Saturday is going to be 39 degrees with little breeze, and no better on Sunday.
Because of this, the Southside committee has had to make the regretable decision to postpone the show this Saturday.
While we understand that riders were relying on the event to get horses ready for Albany, and to qualify for Interschools, the risk of heat stress to horses, riders and volunteers is too great for us to run.
We are currently looking at a new date and will let all riders know details when confirmed.
