Message from the KDEA President:

We had a great weekend for the KDEA Dressage show at the Kansas State Fairgrounds in Hutchinson.  Many of our KDEA members showed in the competition, others volunteered their time, and still others came out for the silent auction and raffle.  We hope you were among those who came and joined us.  Next up is the June 20th Schooling show at the Pavilions.  Don't forget to sign up for the KDEA Scholarship!  Watch for the July 11th "Jump for Joy" show and Cavaletti Clinic!  The Education committee is also at work on a Musical Freestyle clinic for November.  Come be a part of KDEA this year!
