We are fast approaching the long-awaited Fall Symposium headlined by triple Olympic Gold medalist, Charlotte Dujardin, CBE. We look forward to being immersed in dressage for a full weekend of outstanding education. Please be sure to check the website for information on parking and getting to the venue, as the parking is offsite.

There are a multitude of opportunities for learning at the symposium in addition to the presentations by Charlotte Dujardin. There will be lectures with prominent veterinarians including Miller and Associates, Omar Maher and Dr. Jacqueline Bartol. The topics will range from Sport Horse Feeding to Management of Spinal Pain in Dressage Horses. Don’t miss these great opportunities to expand your knowledge.

Concurrent with the Fall Symposium will be a celebration of the 20th Anniversary of Lendon Gray’s outstanding Dressage4Kids Program. The celebration will take place Saturday evening, October 13th at the Boylston Room in Easthampton, MA. Please see the Dressage4Kids website for more information.

We have another opportunity for education which NEDA wholeheartedly supports. It is the USEF’s Safe Sport Training. It is mandatory for all adult members with a competing membership in order to be eligible to participate in USEF activities. Many people have questioned why this training is required. We all invest many hours in training ourselves and our horses, if we can protect our youth by investing a few hours in becoming informed about the signs of abuse it is time very well invested. The full announcement can be found in the October issue of the Tip. We will have more information in the future. As lovely as our sport is, we are not immune from predatory behavior. Please take the time to become informed on this important topic.

It’s hard to believe we are approaching the end of another year. But that means we get to enjoy another Year End Awards Celebration! Watch your emails and the NEDA website for dates and location as the event is still in the planning stages.

We look forward to seeing you at one of these outstanding events over the next few months. Thank you to our wonderful sponsors and tremendous volunteers, and you, our members, without whom none of these events would be possible.

Best,
Phyllis
