The storms are due to hit between 800-900pm. That would be right as our event gets started. So we are now rescheduling it to Sept 27th.
Currently is not looking good. The storms are in the Winchester va area right now at 345pm. They are now forecasting 100 percent chance of rain and T storms at 900pm....We are going to watch the radar until 500pm and then make the decision on what we think we can do. The makeup date would be Sat night Sept 27th.
call or text me at 703-283-4151 before you start heading to the show if you are not sure of what our status is.
Next 6 Hours:
Widespread showers and thunderstorms developing by early evening. The thunderstorms could produce heavy rainfall. Partly cloudy with temperatures falling to near 77F. Winds WSW at 5 to 10 mph. Hourly
However, the forecast is for T storms starting around 200pm. So we wont be able to make an early determination on cancelling the show. Please check back around 500pm for an update on the status. Or feel free to call or txt me at 703-283-4151

Tonights barrel racing is cancelled and rescheduled to sept 6th. Currently we have a few inches of water standing on the end of the ring where the horses would be turning around the barrels. Since we use a fine sand for our ring this mix can make it slippery for horses that can make fast tight turns. And rather than risk injury to horse or rider we have no choice but to reschedule.
August 23rd is our Saturday night Barrel / Gymkhana night. We will be presenting buckles for Champion and Reserve Champion for both our Senior and Junior Divisions.

the ring is currently holding water from rain we got today and last night....anymore rain comes down and the ring will be to slick for the horses to run at speed and be safe. So we decided that Sept 6th will be a better date for the makeup....i will post up around noon tomorrow
Due to the heat index being over the 100 degree mark for Saturday and T-storms on and off all day for Sunday. We have no choice but to go ahead and cancel both days.
