Lifetime Achievement Award - Congrats Fern Feldman!
Congratulations to D4K's Vice President (from its very beginning 22 years ago) for receiving the US Dressage Federation's Lifetime Achievement Award! So well deserved!

The purpose of the Lifetime Achievement Award is to recognize long and faithful volunteer service to USDF. 

Fern works tirelessly to promote the sport of dressage for youth and adults because she believes the pursuit of excellence in dressage carries over to lifelong habits of excellence, education and personal fulfillment. She is always filled with innovative ideas and solutions and has contributed so much while serving as an inspiration to others.

Congratulations, Fern!
