WE had a terrific schooling show Sunday.  It was a full show with a long wait list of competitors hoping to get into the show.  There were many new riders which we were very happy to see!  The rain, for the most part, avoided the show ring but there were a few riders who got soaked.  Thank you to our judges Debbie Boeh (L*) and Jennifer Roth (r) for  taking the time to provide comments on each rider test so that each competitor can improve and learn. 
 

Many thanks to Chagrin Valley Farms and Bernie Villeneuve for all their help to ensure we had what we needed to run a great show!  The only way for our schooling show to be successful is to have plenty of volunteers.   A big shout out of THANKS is necessary to all of these volunteers who selflessly gave up their time to help us run this amazing weekend:

May 12, 2019    NODA Schooling Dressage Show at Chagrin Valley Farms    SHOW RESULTS

 

Show Report & Thank You

We had a wonderful first show of the season!  Even though it was Mother's day, we had a full show with lots of happy riders and only a light mist outdoors. Thanks so much to our Judges:  Robin Birk and Alison Schmidbauer!  Both judges were so pleased to work with us and our conscientious, hard-working riders.  It was so cool to hear Robin comment on improvements she has seen in a variety in riders over the past three years of working with us. 

 

Competitors, here are a few "heads up" to note so we can avoid any confusion or issues at future shows!  
 

1.  PLEASE read the Prize List!  Complete show information and the Prize List are available on the SCHOOLING Shows page. 

 

2.  PLEASE make sure you know what is appropriate to wear and bring to the show. 

 

3.  PLEASE read the Show Notes (provided with the Ride Times) for where you may lunge your horse or any specifics of the show, or ask
     your question(s) at the Show Office. 

 

4.  PLEASE, if possible, have someone pick up your ribbons if you have to leave early. 

 

5.  PLEASE make sure your test "Reader" understands clearly what they may or may not do while you are competing.  
     *  Readers may not have conversations with the rider while they compete.
     *  Readers may not give any advice nor may they repeat any test instructions to the rider.  
     *  The rider is ultimately responsible for knowing her test. 

 
Despite these few little reminders for the good of all, we had an amazing show and the weather cooperated!

  

As you must get tired of hearing, we cannot run without volunteers!  Thanks a million to Cindy Bank, Anita Barton, Arielle Brodkey, Danielle Bolm, Deb Boslett, Halle Clause, Kathy Kirchner, Heidi Miller, Lisa Neely, Greg Overbaugh, Anna Pasela and family, Tina Perko, Sally Pla, Elizabeth Scalabrino, Patty Valencic, and Lisa White for all their help to make this show run smoothly!    A very special thank you to the ring set-up/tear-down/transport experts, Victoria Patterson-Pirko and Linda Toll.
 

We are looking forward to our next show at South Farm on June 9 and the Entry OPEN Date is May 15.   You may sign up online or you can mail in your entry  -- BUT remember . . . if you are mailing your entry, you must mail it on May 15 or after.   Niki and I will see you at South Farm!
