Message from the KDEA President:

Well, the end of the year is coming, and we can certainly tell it from our wild and woolly weather we've been having.  Hope you have had time to ride on some of these nice days.  The Schooling Show Champs (in Stillwater, OK on Oct 20-21) are coming up and we have our next KDEA meeting on November 7th at Capall.  We will have a demo at the meeting...looks like it will be a timely session on clipping your horse.  Watch for more info....    Susan Lang
