Kudos to everyone at Sport Horse Nationals for enduring the Hurricane preparations and "going with the flow".
I can not even imagine having to move out of my stalls DURING a National event, setting up again, with still having a few days to compete.
The Sport Horse Commission has done a great job handling this.
Here is a Summary of what has happened from Deb Hodge (who posted this on Facebook) "here is a summary, not an officiial statement: For those who haven't heard or may be hearing garbled accounts of what's happening at SHN. The company that provided the 'Big Tent' that allowed increased stalls informed the show today that the tent had to come down tomorrow in preparation for Hurricane Irma. The commission did some quick work with the group that runs the facilities here and came up with a plan to move all 90+ horses to the covered warm up arena starting in the morning -- working in sections with vacated stalls being moved to the new space as quickly as they are vacated in the old one. This was a remarkable evening for those of us in the Big Tent. People came together to support each other as tear down took place in the middle of the barn party. There are going to be challenges ahead -- some scheduling shifts have already occurred. But once again, horse people came together to deal with what needed to be done."
