Gleaned from the Book of Face:


Greetings All Calontir Authorized Equestrians!

I will need all Calontir equestrians to fill out the following form (with the exception of any marshals who sent in Q1 Reports. I have the information I need from there.)

This is to update our Calontir Equestrian Roster with all relevant information for authorized riders and marshals.

Note: If I do not receive information from equestrians by April 30th (that gives 2 months to submit this information), then those equestrians will be marked as “Inactive” and any event that is next attended will require a reauthorization and new authorization form completed.

If you have any questions or issues submitting this form, please contact me at EqMarshal@Calontir.org.

Thank you all for your patience as we get our records in order!

In Service,

Eowyth þa Siðend
