Bringing quality Dressage and Combined training experiences to Eastern North Carolina


Message from the President

Greetings all and welcome spring! The warm weather is finally upon us. I hope everyone is gearing up for a fun filled year as our first competition is right around the corner. I hope some of you were able to attend the variety of clinics we had last weekend between Shawna Karrasch,  Kelsey Dunlap and Michael Barisone.

There is a USDF recognized dressage show in Williamston on April 15-16. The show is not recognized by our club but it is partially sponsored by us and the show organizer offers a special high point award to the highest earned dressage score by an EDCTSA member. Thank you Janine Malone!

Our first recognized dressage and combined training show will be held at Jasmine Meadows on April 22 with Heather Hamilton as the judge. Closing date is officially Monday the 17th but Shari is usually pretty flexible up until Wednesday when she makes the schedule. In conjunction with that show there is also a Fallon Blackburn clinic although this is not a club sponsored event.

Following that will be having our May 1 board meeting at Pam Mcknight's house. The meeting starts at 6:30. Dinner will be provided. All are welcome. RSVPs will be appreciated from anyone who is not normally in attendance.

Shortly after that we will be hosting our internationally recognized clinician Cathy Conolly for three days at the preserve in little Washington. She will be arriving on Thursday, May 11 leaving Saturday, May 13. Please come out to audit one or all three days. This is an opportunity you won't want to miss for the education and the fun. We will also be planning something social either Thursday or Friday night. See Pat Mulligan for details.

 We round out the month of May with our second club recognized Dressage only show which will also be held at the preserve on May 20. So, come on out and join us! Bring your horses and your friends!! See you there!!!

EDCTSA President
