The 2nd Annual CHSA Finals was held Sunday, September 7, 2008 at the Mystic Summer Festival in Gales Ferry, CT.  We were very lucky and only had minimal rain and wind from Tropical Storm "Hannah" and the day started out cold and rainy, but quickly became a sunny, cool day – perfect Finals weather.  The Mystic Valley Hunt Club Grounds Crew did an awesome job making sure the rings were ready for the Finals use on Sunday.

Over 170 Finalist participated in this years CHSA Finals showing in 24 classes including the Lead Rein Demonstration.  You can view the list of results here and soon we'll have photos to accompany the results highlighting the 2008 Champions.
