Middle Tennessee Pony Club hosted its annual USEF Horse Trials at Percy Warner Park in Nashville, Tenn. on Saturday October 2, 2021. The Horse Trials offered Training, Novice, and Beginner Novice, as well as Starter divisions, and attracted 73 entries for the fall horse trials.

Peppy Butler was organizer of the event and had great praise for all the volunteers who helped make it possible. She wrote:

“We ran the 67th annual Middle Tennessee Pony Club Horse Trials on October 2, 2021 at the beautiful Percy Warner Park in Nashville, Tenn. The weather was perfect! This year felt a little different because we held it as a one-day format.

“One of the biggest challenges of organizing and running horse trials is having enough volunteers.  Believe it or not, it takes us 35- 40 volunteers to run the horse trials and have all the bases covered.  This year, we had all the spots filled and a few “floaters” able to relieve volunteers when they needed a break to go watch their child or friends ride. Please give a shout out to all the wonderful volunteers that make all of our equine events possible!”
