Well, it’s the first day of Spring but it doesn’t really feel like it, in any way. Given the unusually mild Winter most of us would be in full swing getting ready for show season. We will be mailing our Omnibus early next week so watch your mailbox.

Unfortunately some of our plans will have to be delayed for a while.

Due to the current situation CDA will be postponing our Ride-Critique-Ride Clinic scheduled for April 18-19 at Sperry View Farm. If there is an opportunity to reschedule this clinic in the future we will let everyone know.

CDA is also canceling our first Schooling Show at Sperry View Farm on May 2. We are hopeful that the rest of our Schooling Show series will remain unchanged.

While we are very disappointed that we are not able to hold these events the safety and well being of everyone is our highest priority. We hope everyone stays safe and gives their horses some extra hugs and kisses.
