The World Equestrian Center is requiring that all Obedience and Rally exhibitors in the GRCA National Specialty Oct. 26-27 use a mat, tarp or similar item under their crates in the crating area. This only applies to the crate, not to chairs, etc.

The WEC is not permitting the event organizers to mark off crating spaces on the arena surface so exhibitors are asked to please cooperate with the people who will be directing crate setup during move-in on Monday, Oct. 25, between 4-6 p.m., and on the two mornings of competition.

In addition, as stated in the event premium, all crates must have an ID tag with contact information for the owner.
