November 2016

Hello Members and Friends,

Beautiful signs of fall are all around us! The leaves this year are especially brilliant and it won’t be long before we have our first frost. It’s time to start digging out our horse sheets and blankets in preparation for the cold weather. However, for the time being, I plan to enjoy these last few unseasonably warm November days!

CLD hosted a clinic in collaboration with the Pony Club at the end of October with Melanie Michalak. As expected, everyone had a great time riding to her upbeat music!

Don’t forget that our Annual meeting and awards banquet will be held on November 19 at 6pm at the Sangamo Club in Springfield. Get your reservations in and collect your year-end awards!

It’s also time to renew your club membership and nominate your horse for next year. Renew now!

Later in November the USDF Annual Convention will take place from November 30-December 3 in St. Louis. Be sure to take advantage of its close proximity to central Illinois and meet Fredbird at Thursday’s welcoming party in St Louis.

Happy fall everyone,

Judy Nordstrom,
