Waredaca Classic Three Day Teams with Area II Organizers to offer Road to the Three Day Challenge
In the days when long-format eventing reigned, there was a different kind of emphasis on preparation, on endurance, on horsemanship. The nature of the competition demanded it.
The 2022 Waredaca Classic Three Day Event is a formative experience for young riders, amateurs and professionals alike. Lead Clinician for 2022, SHARON WHITE, international competitor and popular coach and rider, returns this year!! She will be assisted by WOODS BAUGHMAN, also an international rider! What a fabulous combination to guide each of you thru the Classic Experience!!
Waredaca Classic competitors are treated to four days filled with instruction, insight and inspiration. Sharon and Woods, with the help of an experienced team of dressage judges, event organizers, technical delegates, vets and more, walk riders through every piece of the long format. This includes dressage test demos, cross country and show jumping course walks, mini steeplechase clinics, Q&As with vets, top riders and more.
Any other questions, please contact Chris at [email protected]
Hi there! My name is Isabel Plimpton, and I am the proud manager of the Waredaca Red Barn.
I grew up in California but have also lived in Utah, Montana, Virginia and now Maryland. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Animal Science at the University of Maryland with an emphasis on equine care. I aspire to use this degree to run my own barn someday.
While I am the youngest member of Waredaca, I have been involved with horses and their care most of my life. My first equestrian experience was riding English and through it I found a passion for jumping. Since then I have ridden, volunteered, and worked for several riding establishments. I volunteered at the National Center for Equine Facilitated Therapy in Woodside, California and helped humans with disabilities better themselves. Then, during my time in Utah and Montana I worked providing horses with therapy to better their lives, as well as colt training. As a result, I’ve grown to love working with horses using a therapeutic approach that focuses on their needs as animals. Besides my passion and training, I’ve also dabbled in vaulting and Western events like calf penning and roping. I have taught riding at several places, and most recently have free-lanced as a private trainer of horses and as a riding instructor.
When I am not at the barn, you can find me at home with my two Siamese cats or spending time outside with my family. I am a positive, hardworking, and ambitious individual, who has been blessed with a passion for horses.

WHILE IMPLEMENTING CURRENT CDC and MONTGOMERY COUNTY GUIDELINES AND BEING UNCERTAIN OF WHO HAS BEEN FULLY VACCINATED, THE CURRENT WAREDACA FARM POLICY REGARDING WEARING MASKS IS AS FOLLOWS:
WE at WAREDACA support and staff will enforce the current CDC AND FARM recommendations for our staff, clients and visitors that follow:
IF YOU ARE FULLY VACCINATED:
Due to the most recent surge of COVID-19 cases, especially in young people, we are issuing the following protocols effective January 3, 2022. These protocols will stay in place until further notice and are in line with Montgomery County and CDC mandates.
For those over 19 and older…use common sense while at the farm especially in high traffic areas. Given the age of our pony club population, IF ANYONE NEEDS to go in the school barn or school tack room for any reason, please WEAR a mask to comply with current Waredaca protocols for that area of the farm.
FOR ALL THOSE UNDER THE AGE OF 19..….IF YOU VACCINATED AND BOOSTED, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WEAR A MASK OUTSIDE. Masks must be worn at all times by those who are vaccinated BUT NOT BOOSTED. Masks may only be removed when mounted. This means from the moment you step outside your car to the moment you sit in the saddle, masks ARE TO BE ON- NO EXCEPTIONS.And when you get off your horse, masks go back on until you are in your car again.
IF ANYONE IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD TESTS POSITIVE FOR COVID, NO ONE from your household is allowed back at the barn for a MINIMUM period of 5 days. We will take over care for your horse as needed.
For everyone who tests positive for COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status
IF YOU OR SOMEONE IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD HAS A KNOWN or POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO AN INFECTED PERSON OR IF YOU OR SOMEONE IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD HAS A QUESTIONABLE EXPOSURE TO AN INFECTED PERSON
What to do if you are exposed to someone with COVID-19
If you are exposed to someone with COVID-19 and have been boosted or completed your primary two-dose series of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine within the last 6 months or received the J&J vaccine within the last 2 months:
If you are EXPOSED TO SOMEONE OR HAVE BEEN VACCINATED but you received your Pfizer or Moderna two-dose primary series more than 6 months ago or received the J&J vaccine over two months ago and have not been boosted:
**IF YOU ARE NOT VACCINATED AND BECOME SYMPTOMATIC…DO NOT COME TO THE FARM UNTIL YOU ARE SYMPTOM FREE AND HAVE A NEGATIVE COVID TEST
Vaccine boosters can help you stay safe————Getting vaccinated
Please remember that these rules are in place so that we can stay open and continue to offer unlimited access to the farm and the horses. If ANYONE with a confirmed positive COVID exposure comes to the barn, and we experience a surge, we will shut down and none of us want that! Please, DO NOT put ANYONE at the farm at risk.
Thank you everyone for understanding.
