    President's Message for October

    The summer sure went by fast! NMDA has one last schooling show (November 8, Cherry Tree Farm) scheduled and it looks like it will be a very popular show. NMDS is gearing up for the final Rated show (October 31 - November 1, Harvest Fling). If you have not shown at a recognized show before, this is a great show to try an Opportunity Class to get your horse ready for next year. And there are still some great member hosted events posted on the calendar page so make sure to check it often. Still lots of horse events to attend!

    October is Election month for the 2016 NMDA Board of Directors. Look for your ballot in your mail box mid-month. We encourage you all to vote. This is the first year in a long time where you actually have a choice of candidates.

    Now is an excellent time to check your scores for year end awards. To see your scores click on the little blue ribbon on the lefthand side of the NMDA home page or go to http://nmdressage.net/Standings.htm. If you have any questions, contact Barbara Burkhardt, bbequestrian@q.com. The board will be looking at some fun new ideas for the 2015 Member Appreciation and Awards Banquet. Stay tuned!

    As we begin to think about and plan for 2016, we welcome your suggestions and feedback. Please let us know how we did this past year and what you would like to see happen next year. We would like to hear especially what kinds of educational events/clinic you would like, how many schooling shows, favorite venues, etc. Any additional ideas and suggestions you can think of are greatly appreciated. So speak up, please, we need your feedback!

    Looking forward to hearing from you and hope to see you soon!
