Halt, Salute!

On Saturday, Oct. 12, dozens of riders from Barrington Hills and surrounding communities rode in 43 individual dressage tests on a bright and blustery fall day. Thanks to all the volunteers who worked to keep the show, (which was filled to capacity), running smoothly and for providing a fun experience for everyone.  Special thanks to Virginia Brown who organized the event and to Barry Fript who served as the dressage judge.
