    President's Message for May

    Lots has been happening... with more to come!

    The May 2016 Pilates for Dressage® Clinic was very successful. This was NMDA's third year to present this clinic with Janice Dulac. We learned better how to use our bodies to help our horses move better. We learned that our bodies correlate directly with our horses' bodies. When we engage our core, the horse can engage; when we collect our spines, our horses are more able to collect. Janice has been asked to speak at the USDF Convention this year and we are looking forward to her presentation.

    The next NMDA event is the June 12 schooling show at Bryan Farm in Stanley. This was a very popular show last year with great footing, a relaxing atmosphere and lunch available. Jane Bagwell will be the judge. Click here for more information.

    Exciting things are happening with our Youth Program! Our new Youth Chair, Gina McKay, has been busy planning summer events for the kids. The first event will take place on June 18 at Vista Sandia: Riding Correct School Figures Clinic presented by Dianne Fay. An unmounted workshop will be followed by a mounted session. See our calendar page for more information.

    Gina is also currently planning: a De-spooking Clinic with the Albuquerque Mounted Police, a Braiding and Grooming Clinic, and a Test Calling and Judge's Perspectives Clinic. Lots for the kids to learn about dressage this summer!

    Looking forward to seeing you at the next NMDA event!
