Halifax, Massachusetts, USA – August 20, 2021 – To our valued exhibitors, trainers, staff and vendors, At 5:30 AM the National Weather Service issued a hurricane watch for our area (Southeastern Massachusetts) as we are expected to have significant impact from now Tropical Storm Henri on Sunday August 22nd and Monday August 23rd.
At Fieldstone Showpark, the safety and well-being of our competitors and their horses is of paramount importance. Following this principle and out of an abundance of caution, we have taken several steps to assure everyone stays safe as the storm approaches.
All of the classes scheduled for Sunday 8/22 have been moved to run on Saturday, 8/21. A new schedule will be posted on Horseshowing.com before the end of the day today.
While we have extreme trust in the new, free span tents and our team of in-house tent professionals; we feel that it is best for horses to leave the showpark during the storm. We are asking that all horses be out of the tents/show stalls no later than 10PM on Saturday (8/21) evening.
Provided that the showpark does not receive any extensive damage throughout the storm, our intention will be to run the second week of the Summer Showcase and MHJ Finals with minor modifications to the time schedule. Horses will be invited back to the showpark as soon as it is safe to do so. Updates will be posted online and on our social media accounts. Please like and follow our pages for the most recent information.
We anticipate weathering this storm as we have in the past, well prepared and eager for the sun to shine again! We appreciate your cooperation and diligence in assuring we can keep everyone safe and out of harm’s way.
With Best Regards,
Scott Clawson and Tom Hern
