*FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE* 2014 ‘May Classic’

As of 2:00pm May 3, 2014

Given the current and forecasted weather over the next 36 hours for Southern Alberta the Spruce Meadows Organizing Committee has met and determined to postpone the May Classic tournament until Saturday May 10th and Sunday May 11th.

Spruce Meadows has taken into account many factors – not limited but including, the welfare of the horse and the availability of the May 10th and May 11th dates because of the recent cancelation of the Rocky Mountain Show Jumping tournament May 7 - 11.  

Therefore: the Spruce Meadows May Classic will be completed next week, Saturday May 10th  and Sunday May 11th on the grass rings at Spruce Meadows.

The pony competitions that were held on Saturday May 3 will not be repeated again on May 10.

Spruce Meadows will be running ONE competition in the Riding Hall tomorrow on Sunday May 4th with a combined 1.30 meter and 1.40 meter Birchcliff Energy Grand Prix event.

Please note: your nomination fees, entries fees and stabling fees will be moved to next week and there will NO extra fees related to this move.

A schedule for May 10th and May 11th will be posted on the web by the end of the day.

Please note: post entries May 10th and May 11th will be accepted.
