“Want it to rain? Try planning a Horse Trial,” Christie Tull said.

She’s been dodging the autumn weather patterns for the annual September 30 –Oct. 2 horse trials since 1995.

Last year, competitors at the challenging “horse triathlon” event even endured a rare flash flood. The conditions for this fall’s event have only one thing for certain: excitement is guaranteed.

For the first time, 250 competitors from Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and western Louisiana will gather at Greenwood Farm in Weatherford for the United States Equestrian Association’s nationally recognized Area V Championships.
