HDS November 2014 President’s Letter
November 30 is the end of the 2014 HDS Membership year. HDS hopes you will renew for 2015 because there are exciting plans for next year including a February Symposium with Conrad Schumacher, an April USDF Region 9 Adult Amateur clinic with Betsy Steiner and Kathy Connelly and a full year of shows at Great Southwest Equestrian Center. Several additional events are on the drawing board. HDS membership gives you many benefits—for details visit the HDS Web site.
The 2014 HDS Board election results are available in the November newsletter. HDS thanks Betsy Hansberry and Karla West Dee for all their effort as they depart the board. HDS welcomes Susan Heather (Awards) and Jena Tavormina (Schooling Shows) to the board for the first time as they begin their two-year terms.
Tabulations are already underway to determine HDS Year End Award winners for both Recognized and Schooling shows. The 2014 HDS Awards Banquet will be on Saturday, January 17 in the Arena Club at Great Southwest Equestrian Center. This is the same weekend as the HDS Winter Shows — so be sure to mark your calendars!
Enjoy the holidays,
Leslie Rohrer - HDS President
