Bringing quality Dressage and Combined training experiences to Eastern North Carolina


From Our New President, Pat Mulligan....

Pat MulliganI hope that everyone had a great 2014 year and that 2015 brings lots of new goals and accomplishments!

My goals and vision for the club this year is to have 8 to 10 quality shows on the calendar, come up with a few more ideas as to how the club can help support and encourage more participation for our show organizers,   support and provide fun and educational events for our members who do not show, and last but not at all least, maintain and strengthen our club.   Judges and Clinicians alike are always commenting on how lucky we are to have this unusual group of horse women (and a few men) that truly support each other and get along so well.

Our next board meeting will be March 2nd at 37th Street Pizza, New Bern. If you have any ideas that you would like to share, please do not hesitate to contact any of our members at large. They will be happy to share w/the board if you cannot join us.  Let’s have some fun and learn new ways to improve our relationships w/our horses!!!

I have been a member of the club since its beginnings.   I have seen the club grow and change in many ways over the years.   I would like for the club to continue to grow while maintaining its supportive nature of each other.   I lost my horse Buddy last year and now have two mares (Tess and Missty) that keep me on my toes and quite humble.   Even though I have been riding since a child, I am still low level dressage but still love every moment of it!    I have no big high level goals for myself other than to continue to improve my riding and my horses with harmony and fun!  

Happy riding!
