DSDCTA Well Represented at USDF National Convention
in St. Louis
Congratulations are in order for DSDCTA as it was well represented at the USDF National Convention in St. Louis this past December. Several members attended the convention for educational purposes, including Jan Fernald, Linda Lester, Jodie Kelly and Carol Dover. Jan is headed for certification as a technical director and the convention offered several beneficial courses for her. Linda is the show secretary guru for ECC and always in search of new ideas and fine-tuning her skills. Other members attended the convention as they were to be recognized at the Annual Gala. Those included: Jodie Kelly, Carol Dover, Kimberly Taylor, Mary Mallory and Amanda Stewart.
It is exciting to know that DSDCTA has membership and riders which stand out at the national level. Jodie Kelly and Carol Dover’s horse, Shirocco were awarded Champion, Horse of the Year at Second Level with 75.015. Jodie also received Reserve Champion, Horse of the Year at Third Level on Beth Godwin’s horse, Caymus with 74.872.
