We had a great time at Windermere Stables...and even though it was hot, I think everyone had a good time.  Thank you to The Staples for providing us with a great venue, and everything looked great for our show. We hope to schedule other KDEA activities at their facility in the future.

Message from the KDEA President:

Hopefully you had time to come out to Windermere Stables on August 8th for the first Jump For Joy day.  We had people doing combined tests, riding jumper classes, and then John Staples taught cavaletti lessons and jumping lessons.  It seemed that everyone was happy with the new format (a whole day of jumping) and we may repeat this type of event in the future. 

Meanwhile...we prepare for the September schooling show, the Greater Wichita Schooling Show Champs in October.  And don't forget the next KDEA meeting on September 1st.
