Marilyn here. I'm not even sure where to start. The awards are here, the trailer is half packed, 2 of my horses are in Glenwood waiting for me, but the rug has been pulled out from under my feet. Due to this EHV, the Glenwood Rodeo assoc. has closed their rodeo grounds to everyone including us. I went to a meeting armed with lots of updated information, Darlene, etc. But when they got word from the Washington state animal inspector that more horses were identified in Prosser Wa. They absolutely do not want any horses moving thru or around in their county, much less in their rodeo grounds. I think that some part of us all can understand their concerns, even though there maybe a "small risk", that is not "no risk".
So sadly I have to report.... the Klickitat Trek I & II scheduled for June 4 and 5 in Glenwood, Washington is cancelled....I know that this is disappointing to many, including me. I am sorry. I also want to thank you all who have for years continued to support us. We are in shock, then we will work on regrouping. So watch for updates, keep your horses safe, ride smart.
Maybe we will actually see you on the trail this year.
