Bringing quality Dressage and Combined training experiences to Eastern North Carolina


Beth BengalaPresident's Letter

It looks like Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow on Ground Hog's day and we'll be having another six weeks of winter. I don't know about the rest of you but my horse and I are ready for some warmer temps. Wearing ten layers of clothing and breaking the ice in water buckets is getting quite old, not to mention the dry, itchy skin that both humans and horses are tortured with.

We also had a very successful 2013 End of Year Awards Banquet held on Feb 1, 2014 at Taberna Country Club in New Bern, NC. We raffled off over 75 different items as well as over $2,200 in educational scholarships to both new and old members. I would say it was a very fun evening had by all.

The 2014 show schedule has been approved and there are 11 shows this year on the calendar. Please be sure to read over our By-Laws section on how to qualify for 2014 EOY awards. We have two shows in March that both offer dressage and one of them will offer a CT. Please see the prize lists for the tests offered. I hope all of you have set your short and long terms goals and you have a safe and injury free season. Please contact me with any questions.

Keep calm and ride on!

Beth Bengala
2014 President
