Breaking News....Rain is one thing..but lightning and thunder are another, so we have to cancel the KDEA schooling show for today, April 29th. All checks sent in for the show will be destroyed. The Rider Biomechanics clinic will still be a go (already scheduled at Capall Baile, 3400 S 143rd St E) , but we will move it up to 4pm. If you know someone who is planning to attend, please let them know of the time change.
Also, Marie Maloney has agreed to host an impromptu riding clinic at Capall Baile with the judge, Sherry Guess. KDEA can't host the clinic, as we are not insured for a clinic, only a show. So if you are interested in riding with Sherry Guess, please contact Susan at 316-461-1374. We can work around the lightning and thunder....
