Message from the KDEA President:

Hello to everyone....are we tired of this weather when it is in the single digits for a few days, then back to 55?  I know that some of those cold days it is really hard to get out and be motivated to keep up with the training and fitness (of both me and my horse) but ---it will all be worth it when spring rolls around and you are ready for the next show or clinic.  Check out the calendar (see above) for upcoming KDEA events, and if you would like to join a committee in 2017, we'd love to have you.  Just contact me at President@kdea.org.  Our next meeting is February 6th at 6:30 pm at my home.

                                                                                                                        Susan Lang
