The month of August began with an event that no one was prepared for, the loss of a very special and talented horse named Greystoke, aka Oz. He was, indeed, the beloved partner of a lifetime for StarWest’s Jenna Upchurch and previous owners Martin Kuhn and Kate Fleming-Kuhn. My heart goes out to everyone who was affected by his loss. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

Summer is coming to a close and so is the 2017 competition season. It isn’t too soon to start getting your scores into our awards chair at and renewing your CLD membership at

The sooner the better!

Our GMO will be well represented again this year at the Board of Governors General Assembly, held during the 2017 Adequan®/USDF Annual Convention in Lexington thanks to Leslie Burket who has, one more time, agreed to be our representative. Group Members can apply for the Ruth Arvanette Memorial Fund Grant, which allows one deserving individual to attend the Adequan®/USDF Annual Convention, by providing funds to cover the cost of attendance. Applications for the Ruth Arvanette Memorial Fund Grant have been extended.

Enjoy what is left of your summer and best of luck to all in finishing a successful show season!

Your CLD President,
Judy Nordstrom
