Rainy weather and a saturated course have forced the organizers of the Cosequin Stuart Horse Trials in Victor to cancel this year’s competition, which had been scheduled for July 11-14. It’s the first cancellation in 24 years.

The safety of horses and riders are our top concern,” said organizer Heide Vahue. “With the extremely wet footing plus more rain forecast for this week and next, we could not ensure safe conditions.”

The event won’t be made up this year but will return in 2014 for its 25th anniversary.
