Congratulations and good luck to our members Isabel Hall of East Montpelier, Vt., and Hannah Simmons of Quechee, Vt., who are headed to HQC Nationals, presented by The Plaid Horse, November 9-11 at The University of Findlay.

HQC Nationals is a multi-phase event that puts the top scoring participants, who advanced through HQC Levels One and Two, to the ultimate test. Participants will take a written exam, a horsemastership/identification exam, and a final practicum to demonstrate their mastery of practical horsemanship knowledge.
