Kudos to all you Award Winners! We all enjoyed a little food, a little drink and a lot of fun at the 40th Annual CFD Banquet. Now we are gearing up for the Fabulous Freestyle Fundraiser May 22nd at Silver Sands Arena. Riders can sign up for the Fun Fab Freestyle or ride in the new Competition Freestyle Classes judged by CFD's own Tina Drake "R". Competition rules are USEF/USDF rules. 

Do you have any fun pictures of you and your best fur buddy? Email them to cbulmer1@aol.com and I will put them in the newsletter. We all love to share those special moments with friends who understand us.

Good Riding!

Record Attendance at CFD's 40th Annual Meet and Greet and Awards Banquet


85 CFD members and their friends gathered at the Westin, Lake Mary on sunday evening March 6th for a fine evening of socializing, bidding on auction items, enjoying appetizers and dinner. Most of all we applauded 2015 Year End Award Winners. During dinner there was a slide show of pictures from CFD years past. Guests of Honor, Maria Fraessdorf and Kerstin Fraessdorf Rhodes were honored with many requests for "Pose with Me!" photos prior the the dinner. Kerstin spoke  about the beginning years with her father and CFD founding member, Klaus Fraessdorf. 

Ann Chartier was honored with the Heart and Spirit Award, The President's Award, the Old Grey Pair awards (only experienced horses and riders need apply) and her multiple year end awards for her riding skills. Good going Ann! 

It is important to realize that the club needs members who can offer their skills and/or time to help make the events for all of us special.   Consider offering to help for a couple hours at the Fab Freestyle or the Fun Show. Many hands make for light work (and sometimes hilarity!). Come have fun with us. Contact Susan Croft at susancroft@mac.com to help at the  Fab Freestyle (March 22)


Pictures from the banquet to be posted on the website soon. Watch your inbox for the annoncement!
