President’s Letter February 2017

Exciting News!

We are thrilled to announce that Olympic Gold medalist Carl Hester, MBE, is coming to New England for the first-time ever to headline the 2017 NEDA Fall Symposium. The symposium will take place October 14-15 at Pineland Farms in New Gloucester, Maine and it will be Hester’s only U.S. East Coast appearance in 2017.

One of your benefits as a NEDA member is that ticket purchases will be made available to NEDA members first, for a limited time, before they are opened up to the general public. We expect to begin membership ticket sales May 31st. Quantities available for purchase per member may be limited during the first phase to allow as many members as possible the opportunity to attend.

We anticipate that tickets will be in high demand for this event so we encourage you to be sure you have your log-in information for the website up-to-date before ticket sales open up on May 31st. You can find your website user ID and login information in your membership packet which will be arriving in February. We strongly encourage you to test this information well in advance so you are easily able to log-in when ticket sales open!

The planned opening day for demonstration rider applications will be June 14th. More details will be forthcoming on the requirements and process for selecting the demo riders.

We will be providing you with additional information on rider selection and auditing as the details are worked out. Please watch for more information on the website, through the mail, email and the Tip, as plans are announced.

Another wonderful benefit available to NEDA members is our scholarship program. Did you know we offer scholarships for Junior/Young Riders, Adult Amateurs, Professionals, International and Breeders? Scholarships range from $1000 to $4000. The spring deadline for applications is April 1st. More information and applications are available on the NEDA website under the “Learn” tab.

The NEDA Stallion Service Auction opened January 23rd, but there is still time to bid. Bidding closes on February 21st at 9 pm. Don’t miss out if you were thinking of placing a bid! There are wonderful stallions available for your breeding program.

We hope the excitement of upcoming events will help carry you through the final vestiges of the winter. Spring will be here before we know it!
